Sanctification Initially Occurs at Salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christlike.
Memory Verse :
Romans 12:1-2New International Version (NIV)Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Doe Doe and The Unwanted Gift (An Object Lesson on Sanctification) :
Doe Doe talks about a gift that no one really wants, but Jesus will take from all of us, but as well... how when we give ourselves to God - we are not empty but have so much more to offer... and to learn!
Bible Lesson :
Matthew 9:1-8 (Jesus Heals a Paralyzed Man)
Salvation is only the doorway into a walk with Christ. We see a very interesting interaction between Jesus and a Paralyzed man in Matthew chapter 9. Instead of giving the man what it seemed he needed (a healing) Jesus tells him that his sins are forgiven. By the end of the encounter we see that his legs were healed as well, but Jesus was looking into the more important issue. God may come into our lives and forgive us, and clean us of our sins, but it does and should not just stop there. We should continue walking forward in Christ. We should believe that we could sin no more in our lives - that we can grow more and more Christ-like everyday!
