May the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely. 1 Thes. 5:23
Are we willing to pay the cost of sanctification? The cost will be a deep restriction of all our earthly concerns and an extensive cultivation of all our godly concerns. Sanctification means to be intensely focused on God's point of view. Sanctifica- tion means being made one with Jesus so that the nature that controlled Him will control us. The resounding evidence of the Holy Spirit in a person's life is the unmistakable family likeness to Jesus Christ, and the freedom from everything which is not like Him.
