Sanctification

Hello!

Okay, okay….I can’t help myself!! When I read certain excerpts from Oswald Chambers’ “My Utmost For His Highest” (please reference the Post by the name of this book for FREE access to his daily devotionals.). I just have to share them with you. This one I read this morning is from his February 8th entry and it goes like this:

“Are we prepared for what sanctification will cost? It will cost an immense narrowing of all our interests on earth, and an immense broadening of our interests in God.

Sanctification means intense concentration on God’s point of view. It means every power of body, soul and spirit chained for God’s purpose only.

Sanctification means being made one with Jesus so that the disposition that ruled Him will rule us. The one and only characteristic of the Holy Ghost in a man is a strong family likeness to Jesus Christ, and freedom of everything that is unlike Him. Are we prepared to set ourselves apart for the Holy Spirit’s ministrations in us?

End of excerpts.

Until later, in Him.

Fred
