This is the will of God, your sanctification. . . —1 Thessalonians 4:3

Sanctification is something that I believe is not talked about much in churches these days. The "modern gospel" wants to focus on ensuring you have a good life, free of pain and hardships. (Why else are prayer requests always about physical healing?)

With that I decided to look up the word sanctification to see what it means.

According to the Holman Bible Dictionary sanctification is ,"The process of being made holy resulting in a changed life-style for the believer."

 A changed lifestyle, dying to self.

As my pastor is found of saying, "I MUST decrease, so He can INCREASE".

Can I put my interests and self aside so God can use me for His purposes?

The daily struggle of who is lord of my life, Jesus or myself.
