What does it mean to be sanctified? Why should I be sanctified? How does God sanctify me? If these are questions you’re asking and want to understand, here is a word for you to learn about sanctification from the word of God.
Have you experienced this? – Writing an exam where you filled two pages as an answer to a question and felt very happy, but finally the teacher scored you less for the answer and made a comment, “you have written a different answer” or “your answer is not satisfactory”? In the same way, we might have answered certain questions in our lives by giving God offerings, alms and talents and felt very happy about it; yet in the end God is not fully pleased. If we pay attention to what God really desires of us and not just what we feel like giving Him, we would really please Him. God wants us to hit the bull’s-eye and not just the periphery! Offering, alms and talents are the periphery, whereas, faith, heart and a renewed mind are bull’s-eye.
