Video 4: Lesson 3 “Sanctification”

Continuing the Journey: Sanctification

As we noted last week, we embark upon the Christian journey when we respond to God’s offer of salvation in Christ. No change could be more momentous—we are “born again” (John 3:3), we are “made alive” (Ephe- sians 2:5), we are transferred from the “domain of darkness” into “the kingdom of his beloved son” (Colossians 1:13), we are forgiven our sins (Ephesians 1:7), we are delivered from wrath (Romans 5:9), we are recon- ciled to God (2 Corinthians 5:18)—as Jesus put it, we pass “from death to life” (John 5:24).

As dramatic as this change is, this is only the beginning. God’s purposes for us don’t end when we become Christians. Rather, conversion sets us on a glorious path in which God will continue to work out His gracious purposes in our lives. What are those purposes? How are they worked out? In this lesson, Pastor Larry explores what God has for us as we “continue the journey” of the Christian life.
