This week continued in his series on Jesus with a message titled ,”Jesus is our Sanctifier”. In this message he distinguishes the differences between salvation and sanctification which we believe will challenge you to the take the next step with God.

Salvation is more than an escape from hell, it’s life in the kingdom of God. (John 3:2-3)

1. JESUS SANCTIFIES THOSE HE SAVES. (Ex 31:13)
Good works can’t save you. Only Jesus can! (Eph.2:8-9)
“We are not saved by race, place, face, pace, but by GRACE” Rick Warren
Stop trying, start trusting! 
Jesus is involved in your sanctification as much as He was in your salvation (1 Thess.5:23-24)

Salvation 
Occurs instantly (Luke 23:39-43) 
Requires faith (Mark 1:14-15)
Final (1 Pet. 1:3-5)
Removes penalty of sin (Rom.5:9-11)
God’s desire is for all to be saved (2 Pet.3:9)
Getting you out of the world
Changes your eternity 

Sanctification
Occurs gradually (Rom.8:28)
Requires yielding (Rom.6:13)
Grows (Luke 22:31-32)
Resists the desire to sin (Rom.6)
God’s command to believers (1 Pet.1:14-16)
Getting the world out of you
Changes your character

2. JESUS SANCTIFIES BY SCRIPTURE. (John 15:3)
The word of God has the power to change your character. 
Gods word 
~ reveals God (John 5:39)
~ it helps us conquer sin (Ps.119:11)
~ increases our faith (Rom.10:17)
~ it brings healing (Ps.107:20)
~ brings success (Joshua 1:8)

The word of God is a double edged sword: one edge for sanctification, another edge for subduing (Heb.4:12; John 15:3; Eph.6:17)
“Visit many books, but live in the Bible” Charles Spurgeon
The word removes the generational curses and the residue of my past 
“Jesus has no place in life not dominated by His word” TB Joshua
