As we walk the Christian road, it is good to know as we read and study and live by God’s word we are being sanctified [ walking a little closer to God and a little further away from the world] . What are some things the Bible tell us about sanctification? Let us look at the following verses.

1 Thessalonians 5:23
King James Version (KJV)
23And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 2:11
King James Version (KJV)
11For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, Sanctification is produced by God and Christ.

1 Peter 1

1Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,

2Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, We are being sanctified by the Holy Spirit as He lives in an teaches us the paths of righteousness.

John 17:17-19
King James Version (KJV)
17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. We are being set apart by the truth of God’s word as we read and study it.

Hebrews 9:14How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? We are sanctified by the BLOOD OF THE LAMB!

1 Timothy 4:4For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:

5For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. We are sanctified as we read and pray!
