Bible Verse of the Week: John 17:17

"Sanctify them by the truth: Your Word is truth." John 17:17
Santification starts with regeneration. The Holy Spirit fuses into us Christians the principle of becoming a new creation in Jesus. Therefore, we, as Christians, persevere to abound in good works to the glory of our Father in Heaven. The source of that sanctification is the Word of God. It brings the doctrines and principles that we read to appliance in life. The sanctified works bring great pleasure to God. However, we cannot grow in sanctification if we do not read the truth. Holding fast to the truth shall, indeed, make us sanctified by the Holy Spirit. ~Jesselyn
