Sanctification – By David Ibiyeomie

Sanctification is a process by which a Christian believer is made holy through the help of the Holy Spirit. It is the importation of divine grace whereby we possess the nature of God and are made holy to live a pure life. It is the core of Christianity; the master key to fulfillment in life. It is sanctification that enhances beauty, and beauty attracts glorification.

Romans 6:14 (KJV) For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

Sanctification gives you victory over sin and guarantees answers to prayers; it is the bridge between your prayers and the answers. Saying ‘NO’ to sin is simply a process of grace by which a believer is separated from sin, becomes dedicated to God’s righteousness and is set apart for a sacred purpose. Sanctification strengthens your intimacy with God.

2 Corinthians 6:17 (KJV)  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

Nothing hinders God’s blessings like sin. It takes sanctification to enjoy beauty and the blessings God has in stock for us. For God to perform wonder, you must sanctify yourself.

2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)  If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Man has a role to play art which involves separating yourself from sin and dedicating it to God. This is very important if you are on God’s own side.

2 Timothy 2:19-21 (KJV)  Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

Until you purge yourself, you cannot be sanctified. Asking God for blessing when you are not sanctified is like pouring water into a basket. In sanctification, you yield yourself to obey the Lord’s instruction which helps you to live healthier, holier, happier and a productive Christian life.

1 Thessalonians 4:7 (KJV)  For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.

Accepting the responsibility to live a holy life secures your destiny. God’s part is ever ready and settled to help us. God will do His part when you do your part; He will never fail.

God bless you
