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).

This is my daily bread.....continue to clean and create within me

In order for the world to be a better place we need our hearts and spirits fixed. Unclean hearts and poor attitudes hinder us from reaching our full potential!

Yes all yours; cleanse me, fill me & lead me to complete Your Will!

I love the Book of Psalms.
Sincere Love

Uskrømtet kjærlighet“Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart.” 1 Pet. 1:22.

By Sigurd Bratlie, Norway

We have a tendency to want to purify the others. (Rom. 7:21). You feel that it is difficult to love people as they are; you would rather have them different in order to love them. As a result, you start wanting to purify them. It is a love of myself that gives me this understanding. I will never come to love people in this way. I must cleanse myself. I must find this self-interest, know-it-all attitude, and conceit, etc., in myself and purify myself from it. These things have deep roots. It is easy to cleanse the outside of a vessel first, so we do not see these impurities at the first glance. There must be an inner cleansing, a melting—the fire must break us down so that the dross—the inner impurities—can be seen and cleansed away. (Ps. 17:3). Then we will receive a sincere brotherly love. We will never receive this by purifying others—only by purifying ourselves. In the world, people flatter each other to gain advantages. Their friendliness is only feigned. This insincere love is very deeply ingrained in human nature.

If we love the others only when they are as we want them to be—that is feigned. We therefore have an insincere love if we want to purify the others. On the other hand, if we want a sincere love, we must purify ourselves. Then we receive a love that does not seek advantages, a love that does not seek its own. Therefore, if it is difficult for us to love, we must purify our souls. This sincere love makes me a servant to all; it makes me great in God’s kingdom. It makes my path straight, and as a result I am always ready for every good work. An insincere love makes me unstable in all my ways; sometimes I am zealous—at other times I am lazy. I serve and make demands according to what I can gain from the situation, or according to how things suit me. When I purify myself, I also become zealous for good works. (Tit. 2:14). Then I become happy in all circumstances. The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will keep my heart and my thoughts in Christ Jesus. In Christ Jesus we do not think evil thoughts; nor do we make demands.

Hidden Treasures, August 1936

I believe we have to WIN souls AND examine ourselves at the same time

Keep my thoughts focused on You Lord and let others see Your spirit in me!

We need a clean heart and the right spirit to serve the serve the Lord
