Sanctification - Wednesday get_app
The Baptist Faith and Message defines sanctification in this way:
“Sanctification is the experience, beginning in regeneration, by which the believer is set apart to God’s purposes, and is enabled to progress toward moral and spiritual maturity through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit within him. Growth in grace should continue throughout the regenerate person’s life.”
- What does the author of Hebrews tell us that Christ did for us in verse 12?
- According to verse 13, what did the blood of bulls and goats and the sprinkling of a defiled
person with the ashes of a heifer accomplish for the people of God under the old covenant?
(sanctification for the purification of the flesh)
- What does verse 14 say that the blood of Christ does for those who are in Christ under the
(purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God)
- So according to this verse, who or what accomplishes our sanctification?
(the blood of Christ)
How are you doing at setting your mind on the things that are above? If there is a temptation to let the affairs of this world consume you, the answer is not to try harder but to focus on Christ.
Close in prayer.
