High Street



Sanctification is realized in the believer by recognizing his identification with Christ by offering every moment and action to the authority of the Holy Spirit. God does not expect us to do this on our own. If we cannot cleanse ourselves of sin, or deem someone holy, then we can not live a holy life apart from God. From the beginning God has desired to have a relationship with man. His desire is to mentor us and guide us to live a life that allows us to walk with Him. The only way to mentor and guide is to connect. I cannot mentor young men to become life long Christ-like servant leaders unless I spend time with those young men. I cannot exemplify the sort man she needs to identify as worthy of marriage if I do not exemplify worthy behavior toward my wife.

God surpasses this interaction and gives us His Spirit to help us along. "Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure." His Holy Spirit dwells and works within us. Sure, at first it is scary to think..."God lives in me". But that fear of fright becomes a fear of separation, because we do not want to return to our old death.

So, you see, sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God. The Scriptures teach a life of "holiness without which no man shall see the Lord."

By accepting Christ as Savior we are given the power of the Holy Spirit so that we are able to obey the command: "Be holy, for I am holy."

Sanctification is realized in the Christian by recognizing our identification with Christ in His death and resurrection. We account for our union daily, through our faith, that the with Christ union is real. Our faith is proven by offering our natural ability (at whatever level that may be personally) continually to the authority of the Holy Spirit.

God does not expect us to go it alone. He wants you and calls out to you "where are you?" Even though he knows where you are, he wants you to also realize and know where you are so you can realize from where He is delivering you, cleaning of, and where he will take you.

Welcome to Assembly Station.
