Episode 28

In episode 27, we began to examine briefly the subject of holiness. In this episode, we are privileged to turn to Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians and look at his prayer for complete sanctification. The issue of sanctification is central to the reality of the Christian faith. Sanctify used in 1 Thessalonians 5:23 is a verb that defines action, activity, process, and progress. Sanctification is the process of being set apart from sin to holiness. That is Paul’s prayer burden, that there may be a decreasing attachment to sin accompanied with an increasing attachment to holiness. That is the path of sanctification. Let’s jump in.
