We Are Changed through Our Relationship with Christ
Case 10: God's Purpose for His Children
How does God change and sanctify His children to make them more holy and more like Christ?
God's Holy Spirit and His Word work together to change and sanctify His children from the inside out by showing and teaching them more of Christ. 2 Peter 1:3 – As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue.
This Truth Makes
Knowing Christ changes us to be more and more like Him. We could look at it this way:
The more we know Him, the more we are like Him!
The less we know Him, the less we are like Him!
God has given us everything necessary to become more and more like Christ. The power to live a holy life comes through the knowledge of God. We can grow in a relationship with Christ by discovering what the Word and Spirit reveal about Him.
