🔑📖 KEY VERSE
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Thessalonians 5:23
You must be born again!
A person is said to be born again when he acknowledges that he is a sinner, desires to receive forgiveness of his sins from God, confesses his sins to God and requests Jesus to save and wash away his sins, promising not to return to them anymore.
When he notices that he is now living a new life in Christ, loving God and the things of God and rejecting, resisting all sins and overcoming them in his life, he is truly born again! 1John 1:8-9.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
When you become born again, you experience spiritual transformation that turns you into a new creature. 2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
It is common thing for a believer growing in Christ to have inner struggles with envy, malice, anger, pride, stubbornness, lust, inner moral weakness, which often defile him to his embarrassment and sorrow before God and man. This believer is not seen committing sin outwardly. He shows forth clearly evidence of salvation from sin.
The Spirit bears witness in his heart that he is a child of God. But he notices inner impurity that challenges his total freedom. These are called “remains of sin” or “inbred sin” or “the adamic nature” in the believer. Something needs to be done to usher him into the fullness of righteousness, holiness and love in Christ. A dirty cloth that is washed in a bowl of water needs a second washing in another bowl of water for rinsing, in order to remove all dirt from it and make it completely clean.
Sanctification experience is for* those who are already born again which makes them completely holy before God. As salvation is received by repentance and faith in Christ, so is sanctification received by consecration and faith in Christ. Let the believer ask the Lord to sanctify his heart and God shall do it.
