Sanctification is, in its simplest terms, the hand-in-hand walk of the believer with the Holy Spirit ... we take one step while He takes one giant step.
Lately my Christian personality has been bifurcated to the extreme; on the one hand, I feel this world is hopeless, so Come Lord Jesus ... NOW! On the other hand, I constantly feel the power of God and His victory over all of life's challenges [Romans 8:33-39]. Yes, faith is my victory; it will overcome the world. [1 John 5:4-5]
Living with a half-empty, half-full bottle of sanctification is the pits ... but it is also a choice. Oh, Lord, teach my Thy ways.
