Sermons about Sanctification
When God saved us and built us into his church, he was not merely creating a weekend diversion. He was actually changing people from the inside out and creating a group of a people with something very significant in common. What sets it apart from all other groups of people is the diversity of people gathered around a common Savior, Jesus Christ, and the eternal hope that he gives us. God has created unity in his church by the gospel of Jesus Christ. The same Jesus that saved you saved the other members of the church. That makes us into one body. That is why God commands us to work hard to preserve the unity of the church. Unity doesn’t mean that we that we all look alike or think the same things. It means we believe the same gospel, follow the same Lord, and work for the same end—the glory of God in his church. Today, we see how God wants us to live, to live in a way that measures up to the greatness of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

No matter how much we try, we cannot love God with all our heart through our own efforts. Instead, we need to be consumed by the Holy Spirit so that we are set free to love God perfectly.
We like to speed up the process in life; it’s how we roll as Americans. But what about when that involves our Christian life and our spiritual disciplines? Is speeding these up usually a healthy endeavor? Since salvation is “easy,” so too should be sanctification, right? Not according to Jesus Himself (Matthew 7:14).
Salvation has justified us, is sanctifying us and will glorify us through the death and resurrection of Christ.
If we're believers in Christ, then is sin still an issue with us? How can we live without sin having power over us?
