The Cost of Sanctification

We throw around this word, but what does it mean in
light of the fact that Paul calls believer's saints?

May the God of peace Himself sanctify you
completely...1 Thessalonians 5:23

'Sanctification means being made one with Jesus so 
that the nature that controlled Him will control
us. Are we really prepared for what that will cost?
It will cost absolutely everything in us which is
not of God. The resounding evidence of the Holy
Spirit in a person's life is the unmistakable family
likeness to Jesus Christ, and the freedom from
everything which is not like Him.'
(Oswald Chambers)

Reader, this is not the life for the timid. But then we
are told in scripture that Jesus is our Life and has all
we need to press through!
