Jesus is our (entire) Sanctification. (KJV) : 1 Corinthians 1:30

God Himself is "faithful" to complete your Salvation. Philippians 1:6

Do you have Christ in you? ...Are you born again? Have you become "The Temple of the Holy Spirit"?
So, when we are "In Christ", we are as spiritually sanctified as God Himself, as its God's Sanctification that is to have become "THE righteousness of God in Christ'.

= Born again.

= "as Jesus is.... so are the born again IN this World".

A.) Every CHRISTian

Sanctification means to be 'set apart"., and the Born again are "not of this world". They are set apart from it, based on becoming born again into the Spirit of God, by the Spirit of God.. and are now : "seated in heavenly places in Christ".

Thats eternal reality, regarding all who have become "A New Creation, In Christ".

Now, this is a MUST LEARN....

1.) Our Discipleship, is not our sanctification, it's not our Salvation... its only our discipleship. Its our service, only.


A lot of Christians confuse Salvation with Discipleship.
However......They are not the same.
Salvation is JESUS, and Discipleship is the service you offer as a sacrificed life because you have received "Christ's Righteousness".
Salvation is God offering His redeeming eternal life to YOU as :
"the righteousness of GOD, in Christ".,
as "THE Gift of Righteousness"
and "The Gift of Eternal Life"..

AA.) God's Gifts..., = Eternal gift,= "The gift of Salvation" and "The Gift of Righteousness"... whereby God births your spirit into His own, and by this BORN AGAIN spiritual birth, you have become a Son/Daughter of God. An "'Heir of God", and a "Joint Heir with Christ""
See ALL that?
That is your sanctification, your salvation, and your eternal life.
Its what it means to be born again Spiritually, as "IN Christ".. and "ONE with God".

2.) Discipleship, .... is you presenting your body and behavior back to God as your "SERVICE".... , subsequent to you being Born again... = SANCTIFIED and Redeemed by the Blood of Jesus., not having "eternal Life".
To be redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb is to be BORN AGAIN as : "made righteous".

Our Discipleship that follows Eternal SALVATiON the "GIFT"......... has no effect on being originally "made Righteous', which is our entire sanctification, as "born again" as "IN CHRIST".. "ONE with God".

Reader..,
We are eternally "made righteous" by God through the BLOOD of JESUS and the Death of Christ, as prove by His Resurrection.
The born again have God's very righteousness because God GIFTED it to the born again as this..>"The GIFT of Righteousness", and "The GIFT of Salvation".
So, the born again can't become more righteous,.... The born again START as "made righteousness".. because God has given the Born again "The Gift of Righteousness", or He could not have given them the New Birth.
You can't become more righteous then to have become born again AS "The righteousness of God in Christ".. but what you can do is get up every morning thanking God for this amazing "GIFT of Righteousness".

Saint,
We must study the NT... .. specifically Paul's Doctrine regarding being "made righteous" and "Blood Bought"..... so that we can learn to exist in "renewed mind" perfection as a disciple, which is to have the mind of Christ = which is to walk in the Spirit.
This is how you "establish your Heart with GRACE".....as Hebrews 13:9 teaches we must do, lest we become deceived by a "doctrine of devils" like : Calvinism.

To become "perfected" and exist as "the fullness of the Stature of Christ" on THIS EARTH.... as Paul teaches.... is not found by doing deeds.
Its only found by having a perfectly renewed Mind that always and only reflects God's perspective of who we are as a born again NEW CREATION,= made so by God Himself as born again.

Reader, ..
Notice that the NT teaches you that you please God by "faith", and that faith isn't deeds and works...but rather its found in perfected understanding....= renewed MIND.. = having gained "revelation knowledge" in your "inner man"... whereby your "Spiritual Eyes" are "opened", as the "renewed mind".
That is the REAL walk of Faith, and when you exist in this Right understanding = regarding who you have become "in Christ", = you are now existing in the renewed mind, which is to walk in the Spirit., as Paul teaches .
That's how you live the sanctified life that is pleasing to God, and this state of revelation knowledge....= to exist in it,.... is as Paul says....= "as many as be perfect'".

Its interesting that all new believers think that Christianity is "do this, + Do that + did i do enough yet."

So, that is exactly not how to understand it.

Here is the thing about the walk of faith...

WE are the container of God and Christ and the Holy Spirit....
They are not looking for us to get in their way with our plans and our point of view and our opinion.

What They need from us is : More of you God ....and Less of me., everyday till eternity,............. yes i see.

How can you possibly say that you "believe in God" if you do not do what He says?

If there is a message in the OT, it is the lesson of what importance God attaches to obedience. That message does not cease with the NT.

How can you possibly say that you "believe in God" if you do not do what He says?

Here is what God says.

"believe in my Son, and not in water baptism or trying to keep commandments".

"Study the word"

Learn what this means....>"The preaching of the Cross"

Study these . ..

Romans 3:21-28
Hebrews 13:9
2 Corinthians 5:19
John 3:17
Romans 4:8
Colossians 2:11
1 John 3:9
1 Corinthians 15:57

And then do this..

Praise and Pray all the time

"give and it shall be given"

"use not your Liberty in Christ for an occasion to the flesh".

Stay away from Calvinism

"Present your body as a living sacrifice, that is your reasonable service"

And.....How do you do that?

A.) By not trying to do it, to try keep yourself saved.

I wouldn't call you a liar or anything like that, but I don't find anywhere in the Bible that God says that.
