Some verses I needed to hear

1 Corinthians 6:11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

2 Thessalonians 2:13 But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers loved by the Lord, because from the beginning God chose you to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 1:1-2 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ,
To God's elect, strangers in the world, scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia, who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by his blood:
Grace and peace be yours in abundance.

John 17:16-19 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. 19For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.

Romans 8:1-3 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man

I love your passion to learn the Word and grow through the Word. The word "sanctify" has a wonderful promise for us to cleanse, purify, make clean, and separate from that which is sinful.

Who wants to be dirty and stink in the literal sense of the word. A good, warm bath makes a person feel great. After working in the yard, running or biking, or just doing the natural activities of life, a bath just is the natural thing to do. Who wants to be dirty?

Spiritually a good bath makes one feel grea too. That is what God wants for us. He wants us to be free from the dirt and stink of the world. Praise God that we can be santified.

Keep reading the Word. It is powerful!

Love, Dad
