John 17, #07, Jesus prays for our sanctification

John 17:17-19

Sanctification, unity of faith and practice (one-ness of believers), and glorification of the believer are one sweep of the Master Artist’s brush on the canvas of spiritual life. They are each distinct colors in themselves, but none complete by themselves. Each is also a color that blends in the arc of the Master’s hand, from one color fading to the next to produce the completed visual stroke and picture of the completed Christian. Without all three in the right proportion and relation, the Christian life and purpose become distorted and ugly. Today we focus on Life-paint color #1, Sanctification.
