This verse is so powerful! What does God speak to you when you read this? Please leave a reply!
Truly it is God alone who can sanctify and preserve us in this world. By our own righteousness we are at best dirty rags, being fit not for the lowliest of tasks. But with the sanctifying power of the most precious blood of Christ we are made clean and pure, spotless and without blemish, we are new creations, that we may be presented before our Lord and master in all confidence. Not by our works of righteousness, but by the power of God alone.
God of PEACE, is the one who comes to clean, purge like gold with fire, your whole body. That you may be set apart for His purposes until the day of Jesus' return.
Keep yourself blameless! Guard your spirit! How? Feed it with the Word, tend to it with basking in the presence of God, sharpen it by changing and growing :)
Preserve your soul, don't give your heart to temporal things, be Sanctified and holy, wholly set your affection on the Lord.
Preserve your body! Be a good steward of this as much as you do your own heart.
It is sometimes hard to realize that I don't do anything to sanctify myself. God is the one that sanctifies me. It's so refreshing to know that God has a plan for my life and He desires to make me blameless before him. The love, grace, and mercy of Jesus are so undeserved which makes me all the more thankful that He would choose me. It's truly amazing grace
I'm so thankful that the Lord has sanctified me through His Son Jesus on the cross. He started out by being born in a great place of humility. He CHOSE to come down to earth and show us His real love for us! He then, by giving me a chance to be sanctified by Him has made a way to "separate me from profane things" and make me wholly, consecrated to Him! He makes me complete and only by Him we can one day be found blameless, thank you Jesus!
