Word of the Week: Sanctification

October 30, 2018

Learn more about the meaning of the Biblical word "sanctification" in our Word of the Week. As we prepare to celebrate the Reformation this week, this word is certainly appropriate since the church of Luther's time taught that people had to earn their way into heaven by their good works. As we consider the Biblical word sanctification (and sanctify) we see that everything having to do with our salvation and even our lives of holiness are entirely the work of God, not our word. We will look at the two ways in which the word sanctification is used, both in the broad and narrow sense, what that means and how they differ. We hope you will join us!
