God Gives Us What We Need To Change
Adventure 10: God's Purpose for His Children
What are two needed gifts that God provides so that we might be sanctified?
The Holy Spirit and His Word are two needed gifts that God provides so that we might be sanctified. 2 Thessalonians 2:13b – God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth. John 17:17 – "Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth."
This Truth Makes
God has provided His Holy Spirit and His Word so that we might be sanctified. When we are born again, God causes His Holy Spirit to to dwell (stay, or live) inside us. God is in us!
1 Corinthians 3:16 – Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
By providing the Holy Spirit and His Word, God makes sure that every believer will be changing. Not everyone will grow to be more like Christ in the same way, nor will everyone reach the same level of spiritual maturity. But all Christians will be sanctified, by the power of the Holy Spirit through the Word of God.
