Sanctification Hounds

“There’s more work to be done concerning your sanctification.”

_

And more of the ones who aren’t doing it themselves are gonna tell you what you should be doing regarding your sanctification.

_

Here’s my advice:  Forget trying to improve people (or yourselves) in God’s eyes.  Dump that “3rd use” baloney, and just preach the law and the gospel, to kill off and to make alive again.

_

And BEFORE you write in with your 27 page tome with excerpts from the Lutheran Confessions and the Bible to buttress your little self-improvement/righteousness project…take a good long look in the mirror and honestly ask yourself what this project has done for you.

1 Corinthians 6:11 ESV

“And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.”

_

 

Romans 10:4 ESV

” For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.”
