Romans 6:21-22 (NET) So what benefit did you then reap from those things that you are now ashamed of? For the end of those things is death. But now, freed from sin and enslaved to God, you have your benefit leading to sanctification, and the end is eternal life.

When I was much younger, I used to hear a lot about sanctification. It was believed by many believers in my country then that after a person believes and is discipled, the next stage was sanctification. A believer who converted and has lost the vestiges (characteristics) of his old life was the one considered to be sanctified.

There were many excesses those days, but one thing I can say for sure about those days was that those who professed faith in Christ Jesus were more disciplined than many who claim to be born again today.

As a result of true sanctification, there was a great revival in my country. Many Muslims and Idol worshipers received the gospel. It was commonplace to see a minister of the gospel who was formerly an enemy of the church before he received Christ. The church was not as wealthy but much more powerful in her ability to penetrate and win souls. But with time, among mainstream believers, teachings about sanctification diminished and many believers today don't even know what it means to be sanctified after believing.

But in today's Bible verse, we see that those who are free from sin have their benefit leading to sanctification. There are dimensions of God's glory and power that can only be revealed through sanctified vessels. Sinners would not be truly convicted and repent through the gospel from an unsanctified vessel.

Go into today remembering that sanctification sets you apart for God and God alone. Only those the Lord has sanctified can be truly useful for all His good works (2 Timothy 2:21).
Prayer: Lord, help me to live a sanctified Holy life that radiates your presence and glory.
