Are you Ready for Sanctification?

We don’t use the word “sanctification” too much in our churches today. But it is a word we cannot overlook for it has deep and profound meaning for the believer. It takes us to another spiritual level, and brings us closer to God. It means to be set apart for sacred use. The question is: are we ready for sanctification? Are we ready to live holy lives? In 1 Thessalonians 5:23, we find these words:

 “Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again.

The writer brings to a conclusion the prayers he has put before the church. His prayer is for sanctification and holiness. The apostle prays that the believers’ spirits, souls, and minds would be kept sound and blameless. This is his parting blessing. He wants us to live righteously that we may be kept by the power of God until the coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He knew that sanctification would not come easy because it requires a great deal of trust and faith in God. His desire is that the relationship with God will not be broken. It is my prayer this day that not only are we ready for sanctification, but that we have been sanctified.
