1 Corinthians 1:2
In Christ Jesus we have been sanctified, made holy, called to be saints (holy ones). This calling is not because we were so holy but because of what God did through Christ on our behalf.
1 Corinthians 1:26-31
It was through His doing in Christ Jesus that we have sanctification. There is therefore no boasting.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
God can wash anyone in Christ Jesus, cleanse us, and sanctify us through the spirit of God.
Through the accomplished work of Christ on the cross, we have been sanctified through his sacrifice (Hebrews 10:10).
We have not been left alone, but rather we have the spirit and the word of truth.
2 Thessalonians 2:13 -- Sanctification by the spirit and faith in the truth
1 Peter 1:2 -- By the sanctifying work of the spirit, to obey Jesus Christ
Christ has not left us on our own. We have the holy spirit, and we have the word of truth.
John 14:16-17 -- Through the spirit of truth, Christ will be in you!
John 14:25 -- The holy spirit will teach all things and will bring all that Jesus said to our remembrance.
John 16:5-7 -- Jesus sent “the Helper” to us.
John 17:16-19 -- Jesus prayed that his disciples would be sanctified in truth.
We no longer need to be slaves to sin. We have Christ in us!! We have the holy spirit! We have the word of truth! We have been freed from sin, enslaved to God, and derive the benefit, resulting in sanctification!!!
