UNDERSTANDING PATHWAYS TO SANCTIFICATION – Part 1
God has a stake in our lives, He wants us to live a holy life for His name’s sake! You won't lack any good thing in this life and that to come when you walk in sanctification – Hebrew 12:13–15.
- The way of righteousness is narrow – Matthew 7:13–14, 1 Corinthians 6:9–11.
- Sanctification is the will of God – 1 Thessalonians 4:3.
- God will not give you something that you don't have the capacity to handle – 1 Peter 1:16, Matthew 5:8.
- Sanctification is a choice and not a gift – Deuteronomy 30:19.
THE COSTS OF UNGODLINESS
- To experience the second death, which is an eternity in hell is the greatest fear of most believers.
- It blocks access to God in times of trouble – Psalm 89:19, Isaiah 38:1.
- It destroys destiny – Acts 12:21–24. Anyone that is stubborn is proud! And God resists the proud – James 4:6, 1 Kings 21:21, 1 Timothy 6:10, Joshua 7:21–27.
- It blocks access to divine secrets – Psalm 25:14, Job 29:4. The secrets of God are what makes a man stand out in career and business! – Daniel 1:8.

PATHWAYS TO SANCTIFICATION

- You must continue to engage the cleansing power of the Word – Psalm 119:9–11. Be committed to taking daily showers in the word (the Bible likens the Word to water) – Ephesians 5:26, Hebrews 3:13.
