31 Days 2017 Large

Gentle Reader,

Sanctification: The life-long process by which God shapes us into who He desires us to be (i.e., the process of becoming more like Christ). Through our submission to and cooperation with the loving activity of the Holy Spirit, we progressively return to a state of proper functioning.

Regeneration – we are made new in Christ

Obedience – doing as God says

The FACTS of Salvation – a summary of the process of salvation and sanctification

Holy Spirit – third member of the Trinity, comes to live in us when we become saved

  1. I just had a bout with obedience. I like what you said about it being a life long process. Thank you for this post. I really like the design and layout. What theme do you use?

    1. Hey, Scott! Learning to obey the Lord is a rough process. We have to submit when we really don’t want to. I’m glad for His patience.

      I use the “Toujours” theme (free) with as much free, amateur customization as possible. 🙂

  2. That He would establish and remain committed to this goal of making us more like Jesus is beyond comprehension, especially when I think of how often I resist the process of transformation. Thank You, Father. Thank You.
