Earlier this evening, I preached on Sanctification to the students of Boyce College. The text is 2 Corinthians 7:1:
“Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God.”
There is still sin in the world, and there is still sin in us. It’s power has been broken through Christ so that we are no longer slaves to it, but its remnants are still there. We are to contend against it until glory. That’s what it means to cleanse yourselves.
For the rest of the message, see below.
