DAY 18 THURSDAY: JUNE 2020

SANCTIFICATION BY THE WORD OF TRUTH!

Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: grace to you and peace be multiplied (1 Peter 1:2).

The Word of God is the only truth that can stand the test of time in life. It has the potency to cleanse and purify the heart of an individual in life. In the opening text, the Bible tells us that elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: grace to you and peace be multiplied. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that the Word of God is indeed his sanctification in life. God’s Word is the truth that sanctifies the mind for regeneration in life forever.

Except you are sanctified by the Word of truth, you can never experience transformation of the mind in life. That is why the Bible says in Romans 12:2, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Therefore, a Christian is not expected to be conformed to the standard of the world but to be transformed by the renewing of his mind in life. The transformation of the mind is daily renewed by the Word of God for greater efficiency in life. Until God’s Word renews your mind, you cannot be transformed according to His will in life forever.

God’s Word carries the ability to purge and sanctify an individual for the truth in life. The Word of God can never return void without fulfilling its purpose in the life of an individual (Isaiah 55:11). That is the reason why the Bible says in John 17:17, “Sanctify them by Your truth, Your word is truth.” In fact, God’s Word of life is indeed a purifying agent to man’s body, soul and spirit in life. The truth about God is found in His Word for daily and victorious living in Christ Jesus. God’s Word is the truth that can stand the test of time in life. That is the reason why the Word of God is highly dependable, trustworthy and does not fail in life forever.

Daily Tip: The Word of God has the potency to purge, cleanse and sanctify the body, soul and spirit; therefore, a Christian is expected to put his trust upon it in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you (John 15:3).
