What is Sanctification?

Description

Although corrupted by sin, the Lord restores us.

"For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with gratitude; for it is sanctified by means of the word of God and prayer." -1 Timothy 4:4-5 

Sanctification isn’t a religious car wash. Pass through a grinding, scrubbing washing machine and the mud comes off. The car comes out on the other side glimmering. Sanctification, however, is the process by which God sets things apart for the use He intended. He created all things to fulfill His purposes. They are corrupted by human sin. But when God recovers them, He restores them to His high aims. And that includes human beings soured and dirtied by sin.
