Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.
As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.
And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth. Jesus Prays for All Believers
MEMORY VERSE: “To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all who in every place call on the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours.” 1 Corinthians 1:2 (NKJV).
INTRODUCTION: “Qadash” is a Hebrew word that is translated as “sanctified.” In the Old Testament, sanctification frequently denotes the ceremonial or ritual consecration of any person or thing to God. Thus, the Hebrews, as a people, were holy unto the Lord, through the covenant with its rites and atoning sacrifices (Exodus 31:13). In the New Testament, sanctification is the second work of grace after salvation that every believer must experience. Hence, every believer is called to a wholly sanctified life.
1. SANCTIFICATION- CONCEPT AND PROCESS
2. PRACTICES OF A SANCTIFIED LIFE
1. SANCTIFICATION- CONCEPT AND PROCESS
To sanctify means to make holy or set apart for God (Exodus 29:44). Sanctification is making truly and perfectly what was defiled and sinful (Colossians 2:13). It is a progressive work of divine grace upon the soul justified by the love of Christ (Romans 3:24). It is the advanced work of the Holy Spirit in the life of a believer from the moment of salvation to perfection (1Corinthians 6:11). It is gradual cleansing from the corrupt nature to a spotless nature (John 15:3; Jude 24). Every Christian should be holy as God is holy (1 Peter 1:15-16).
Sanctification and truth are inseparable. Those who love to be sanctified must love the truth which is the word of God (John 17:17). The Holy Spirit does the work of sanctification through God’s word (2 Thessalonians 2:13). The blood of Jesus cleanses the believer from all sin (1John 1:7). In addition, faith in the Lord Jesus is an important ingredient in the work of sanctification (Galatians 2:20).
CLASS ACTIVITY 1: Students should mention other ways they could sanctify themselves from this corrupt world.
