yourself?

What is the process of sanctification?

Salvation vs Sanctification

To consecrate yourself is to answer God's call to spiritual consecration. This means making a conscious, willing decision to dedicate your soul, mind, heart, and body to God.

 

This decision must be one of will, intelligence, and affection.

 

Only you can make the decision to consecrate yourself to God.

Sanctification does not stop with salvation, but rather it is a progressive process that continues in a Christian's life.

Unlike the things and places that are sanctified by God in the Bible, people have the capacity to sin. Even though we have been "set apart" as God's children, we continue to behave in ways that are contrary.

 

As Christians, we realize shortly after we have been saved that there is a new inner battle being waged within us - a battle between our old sin-lead nature and new Spirit-lead nature. Paul in Galatians best describes this inner struggle in

Galatians 5:17: "For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh;

and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish." 

To sum it up, the process is daily and everyday we get better and better with the Word of God to guide us.

It is important to differentiate between justification and sanctification.

 

Justification is another word for salvation. Jesus gave his life on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins. His blood washes away our sins and frees us from an eternity of suffering and condemnation.

 

Believers are saved because of what Christ has already done. We can do nothing to earn salvation, it is the gift given to every child of God regardless of race, age, maturity, or merit. 

 

Sanctification occurs as a result of salvation. At the moment of conversion, the Holy Spirit enters our life. We are no longer held hostage by death, but are free to live the life God desires for us.

 

We are thus sanctified simply because of our standing as lost souls saved by grace.
