Idea from Aubrey Johnson

From his book Love More, Sin Less..

Sanctification is the process of growing more in love with that which is truly worthy of love.

Temptation is Measuring Love

Sanctification is Maturing Love

There are 3 ways to view the work of sanctification:
  1. Position - you are a child of God.
  2. Process - your heart is changed.
  3. Product - your life is reformed.

1 Thessalonians 5:23
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 5:25-27
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
