1 Corinthians 1:30 - "And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption,"
Sanctification does not mean anything less than the holiness of Jesus being made ours manifestly.
The one marvelous secret of a holy life lies not in imitating Jesus, but in letting the perfections of Jesus manifest themselves in our mortal flesh. Sanctification is "Christ in you." It is His wonderful life that is imparted by faith as a gift of God's grace.
Sanctification is not drawing from Jesus the power to be holy; it is drawing from Jesus the holiness that was manifested in Him, and He manifests it in us. Sanctification is an impartation, not an imitation.
Question to ask myself: Am I willing to believe Jesus for the sanctified life in Him, that He is living through me?
