We will be working our way through the entire Bible offering a chapter-by-chapter overview of each book. The goal is to give you a solid understanding of the Bible’s overarching and unified message of redemption. We hope you enjoy.

Past, present, future. When it comes to your sanctification, which is it? According to 1 Corinthians 1:2, your sanctification is a past-tense reality. But that’s not Paul’s final word on the topic. It seems that the doctrine of sanctification can’t be relegated to the past, present, or future. It is ongoing. In one sense, we have been sanctified. Yet, we are also in the process of being sanctified. And, one day, we will stand before God as completely and finally sanctified. But the one reality most Christians seem to overlook is their status as having been sanctified or set apart by God at the point of their salvation. He has deemed them holy and, rather than seeing them as sinners, He views them as saints. And it is that unbelievable reality that should prompt us to live lives that are in keeping with our new identity in Christ.
