God Our Sanctifier

And you shall be holy to Me, for I the Lord am holy, and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be Mine. (Leviticus 20:26, NLKV)

Christian Links Vol 2 Issue 23This comes from the Hebrew phrase Jehovah M’ Kaddesh; the Lord my Sanctifier.

What does it mean to live a holy life?  What does it mean for God to sanctify us?

God is our Sanctifier. He sets us apart from sin through the finished of Jesus Christ on the Cross.

There is a second aspect to this. That is, we are to set ourselves apart to God.

Unfortunately, we have often focused on the first part (separation from sin) and ignored the latter part (separation to God).

We need both.

God established us. But we are to walk in what He has done by the guidance of the Holy Spirit.



Holy Father God, thank You for saving us from the eternal consequences of sin. We seek to set ourselves to You fully and completely. Grant us strength for this day to live as a holy people set apart for You. In Jesus name, Amen.
