The Dynamics and Means of Progressive Sanctification

The Dynamics and Means of Progressive Sanctification

2 Corinthians 3:18

  1.  We are sanctified by beholding the glory of Christ
    Satan prevents you from seeing Christ as glorious.  God, in His sovereign grace, removes the blinders so you can see Christ in all His glory.
    1 John 3:2                 Hebrews 1:3
    If you want to know what God is doing in your life – – – He is transforming you from one level to another in conforming you to Chist-likeness.
  2. We are sanctified by appropriating the power of the Spirit
    Galatians 5:16
    God does it through the use of means; namely our labor and our efforts in applying spiritual disciplines to our lives
