Yes, That's True, but it's Still Tough!

I, the LORD, sanctify you. --Exodus 31:13

I, the LORD, who sanctify you, am holy. --Leviticus 21:8

For when he sees his children, the work of my hands, in his midst, they will sanctify my name; they will sanctify the Holy One of Jacob and will stand in awe of the God of Israel. --Isaiah 29:23

Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. --John 17:17

For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification. --Romans 6:19

But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. --Romans 6:22

And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, so that, as it is written, "Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord." --1 Corinthians 1:30-31

For this is the will of God, your sanctification: --1 Thessalonians 4:3

Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. --1 Thessalonians 5:23

God chose you as the firstfruits to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth. --2 Thessalonians 2:13

Jesus also suffered outside the gate in order to sanctify the people through his own blood. --Hebrews 13:12

To those who are elect exiles...according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in the sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and for sprinkling with his blood: May grace and peace be multiplied to you. --1 Peter 1:1-2

(This post goes out to you if you are in the throes of sanctification.)
