BIBLE PASSAGE: 1 John 2:14-17, Exodus 31:13

1 John 2:14-17;
14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Exodus 31:13;
13 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you.

INTRODUCTION: Being born again (1 John 2:1-6) does not end with surrendering your life to Jesus (salvation experience). It is much more than this and unfortunately this process leading to complete salvation is not preached or emphasized today. Salvation experience without sanctification leads to carnal Christianity. Sanctification is one of the processes a young Christian passes through to become stay in Christ. Sanctification in simple terms means “being separated unto the Lord”. The day a person gives his/her life to Christ is not the day he/she finally separates completely from the things of the world. It takes teachings and effective follow up with continuous prayer.

MEMORY VERSE: “And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.” John 17:19

1. It is part of the work of complete salvation. – 2 Thessalonians 2:13
2. It is a must and not optional. It is the will of God. – John 17:17; Hebrew 13:12; Ephesians 5:25-26

1. By the word of God and not by HUMAN ORATION – John 17:17. It helps to know your sin.
2. By the blood of Jesus. – Hebrew 13:12 This cleanses from all sins.
3. Step of replacement of heart. – Ezekiel 36:26
4. Cooperation with God through the help of the Spirit. – 2 Corinthians 7:1

1. You will find it easy to live a holy life and to become a vessel unto honour.
2. You will begin to bear fruit, to live a life of perfection and dominion. John 15:2, Hebrew 10:14 as your heavenly inheritance is guaranteed. – Acts 26:18

SUMMARY: Sanctification is a must for every believer as there must be a difference between you and the world.

God’s will for us is to be sanctified. 1 Thess.4:3.
Christian sanctification means to be set apart for God special use.
Anyone that is separated unto God lives holy and become a vessel unto honour. Heb.1:9; 2 Tim.2:21.

ASSIGNMENT: Mention scriptural examples of those that lived a sanctified life.

1. Father, I am tired of rising and falling: Take me to the level of a sanctified life in Jesus’ name.
2. Father, please have mercy upon me and help me in every way to be separated from every evil that easily besets me.
3. Father, revive the preaching of sanctification in Your church from now on in Jesus’ name.
4. Father, help all our House Fellowship leaders to live a sanctified life at all levels in Jesus’ name.
5. Father, without sanctification no holiness. And without holiness one cannot see you, please release the grace of sanctification upon every member of RCCG in Jesus’ name.
