GO- Digging Deeper: February 26, 2022

Read: Ephesians 2:6; Hebrews 10:10; Romans 12:1-2; 2 Corinthians 3:18; 2 Peter 3:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; 1 John 3:2; 1 Corinthians 15:51-53

There are different types of sanctification that a believer will have. What does Hebrews 10:10 say happens to a person because of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice? Where are we positioned because of this sacrifice? This is called positional sanctification and occurs just once when we accept Christ. What do Romans 12:1-2, 2 Corinthians 3:18 and 2 Peter 3:18 suggest is a second phase of sanctification? Do you have to be perfect the moment you accept Christ? What does the Christian life look like for every believer? This second phase is called ‘progressive sanctification’ and changes throughout a person’s life. Are you growing more and more like Jesus? There is also a final phase of sanctification as seen in 1 Thessalonians 5; 1 John 3 and 1 Corinthians 15. What is true of this phase? When does perfection occur when you can no longer sin? Today rejoice that you are one day going to be able to live sin-free.In the meantime work at your life, laying down those sinful urges at the foot of the cross. Ask God for help when tempted.
