The Bible tells us that without sanctification—holiness—no one can see the Lord. If we are honest, we have to admit that we are anything but holy by nature. So how can this transformation take place?

“But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.” Rom. 6:22.

Our fruit to holiness is sanctification. For this to take place we must first be set free from sin so that we become slaves (servants) of God. In Rom. 7:25, Paul says that with the mind he himself served the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin. Paul didn’t serve sin with his mind—he didn’t yield to temptation, but overcame through the power of the Spirit. The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus had made him free from the law of sin and death. Rom. 8:2. The law of sin and death only comes into effect when I serve the law of sin with my mind.
The law of sin in my members

Nevertheless he still served the law of sin with his flesh. How is this possible? A simple example can help us to understand. Imagine a man learning to play the piano. With his mind he is following the notes, and to the best of his understanding and ability he is playing what is written in the notes, but still he makes mistakes. This is what Paul means when he says “For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.” Rom. 7:22,23.

We must not confuse the law of sin in our members with the law of sin and death—the former comes into effect when I serve the law of sin with my flesh (not my mind), whereas the latter comes into effect when I serve the law of sin with my mind.
Sanctification is development

If we go back to the example of the man playing the piano, we can say that there are some mistakes the man notices as soon as he has made them. Nevertheless, he didn’t do them with his mind—it was the other law in his members. Other mistakes he does not become aware of. These are mistakes that the teacher (the Holy Spirit) must point out to him so that he becomes enlightened.

This is how it is with everyone who serves the law of God with their mind. They continually discover that their deeds and actions have been influenced by the law of sin which is in their members. When they discover this, they agree with the Spirit’s judgment, and they hate it and put it to death through the Spirit. “For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.” Rom. 8:13.

The deeds of the body are deeds resulting from the law of sin in my members. They were not carried out consciously, just as the man learning to play the piano did not consciously make mistakes. When I discover these deeds and put them to death, I am being sanctified.
I must have an interest in sanctification

How far someone progresses in learning to play the piano depends on his ability as well as his interest. But ability has nothing to do with sanctification, it only depends on how interested one is. Paul came far on the way of sanctification because his interest was very great. He was gripped of the life of Jesus, “… forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Phil. 3:13-14.

Someone who does a good deed occasionally can feel very pleased with themselves and discover nothing of the other law in their members. Paul, on the other hand, always discovered the other law in his members and found then a law, that evil was present with him, the one whose will was to do the good. (Rom. 7:21). If we truly serve God and delight in His law then we also we find this law. What is important is that in all things we serve God in sincerity of heart and not with eye-service as men-pleasers. (Eph. 6:6).

It is when we do the will of God from the heart that we find this other law in our members— those who live to please people never discover this. They have no ear to hear the Spirit’s voice, and as a result, are not able to receive the Spirit’s instruction and discipline. But we don’t need to be discouraged when we discover the evil that is present with us and sense the Spirit’s discipline, because it is exactly this that gives us the possibility to be further sanctified—and the more sanctified we become, the more blessed life becomes—for ourselves and for those around us (Heb. 12:10,11).

To be wise and succeed and be obedient to God ,listen to your father or parents.

Life is easier and more fun and satisfying when we do our best for others! The wisdom of Jesus He received from His Father is "Do unto others as you would have others do to you"! Obeying our God leads the the greatest Peace ever known! Thank you, Lord!

amen! Remember "A wise person accepts his correction, while a fool denies it" :D

This is so true. We are alwys looking for direction but when it comes our way we don't want to follow for fear it will get in the way of our own goals, wants or desires. It would be wise to follow the directions we have been given, remembering obedience is better than sacrafice.

See kiddies listen to Daddy.....

To God be the glory

I am not a big fan of being punished, but there is purpose behind it..The Bible does not say we have to like it, but looking at it from outside our own view and trying to understand why it is being done and for what reason is the best way for us to bring about the change that punishment is meant to corrrect.
