SANCTIFICATION

We have been predestinated for Sanctification ie
Fore-ordained for conformity to the image or nature or likeness of Christ Jesus our Lord.
Sanctification is the process by which God makes us holy and conformed to Christ’s image.
This is purely the work of the Holy Spirit but highly dependent on our willingness to submit to the Lordship of Christ Jesus.
However,  for sanctification to be effective,  there has to be Justification (the process by which God chooses to see us in our ‘finished state’ rather than our ‘factual state’ ie is being seen as sinless even though we are still struggling with sin).
Justification frees us from ourselves and the devil ; from their taunts on the mind.
Romans 8:29, Ephesians 1:4
