How Does Sanctification Work? (Part 3)

Journal of Biblical Counseling 31:1

Part 1 of a 3 part series. Sanctification is God’s will for us, that our trust become childlike and our love become wise. We are travelers on the road home whose center of gravity is shifting outside of ourselves. Sanctification, then, is not a self-improvement project. God is making you into a person who is more connected to others: joined to Jesus Christ and to your brothers and sisters. Part 1 of this series is in JBC 27:1, Part 2 in JBC 27:2 and Part 3 in JBC 31:1.
