Sanctification


Sanctification is by definition “The act of grace by which the soul is cleansed from sin and made holy in the sight of God.”

As discussed in Part 1 of our Bible study series, our first step in approaching a Holy God for obtaining salvation is to confess or repent of our sins.  Will God forgive us?  Of course the answer is yes.  According to I John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”  God is Holy and just and if we sincerely come to Him with a repentant heart confessing our sins with a desire to live for him then he will wonderfully forgive all transgressions.  We none deserve anything from God but by His grace we can be receive forgiveness.  In addition to forgiveness, God also promises to “cleanse us from all unrighteousness”.  This one verse describes the “Good News” of Jesus Christ…he will forgive and cleanse.  Another word for this cleansing is “Sanctification”.  This is stated by Jesus while interacting with Paul the Apostle at his conversion.

Acts 26: 17-18

17 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

Jesus also said in John 17:19

And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

It is essential for salvation that we receive all of what God intends for us which is forgiveness and sanctification.  This sanctifying experience is truly why Jesus died and rose again.

Hebrews 13:11-12

11 For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.

Once we are sanctified, we become one with Jesus Christ, we become part of the family of God!

Hebrews 2:11

11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,

Romans 8:16-18

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
