Sanctification

Sanctification is the state of holiness imparted to the believer through the work of the indwelling Holy Spirit. Though all Christians sin, the Holy Spirit leads them in a life characterized by repentance, obedience, and Christian growth -- that is, a converted, or changed, life evidenced by the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Sanctification is made possible by God's grace, through faith in Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 1:2; 1 John 1:8; 3:6, 9; Romans 6:22; Galatians 5:22-23; Romans 5:1)
