JESUS SAVES – THEN SANCTIFIES
THE DEFINITION OF SANCTIFICATION:
The words “sanctify,” “saint,” “hallow,” and “holy’ all come from the same Greek root, hagiazo (ha-gee-ad-zo). In the New Testament sense, the word means “to place in a relation to God answering to His holiness.”
1. At the time of conversion (regeneration) a process of initial sanctification takes place.
2. The prominent thought in the definition of sanctification is: Separation from evil, and dedication unto God.
3. Real sanctification isn’t being sinless, but learning to sin less…by God’s power.
4. You can profess sanctification without possessing sanctification of the heart.
5. Sanctification is completed at Death and when the Lord returns!
