'A CALL TO SANCTIFICATION'

"But as he which has called you is holy, so be you holy in all manner of conversation" - 1 Peter 1:15
.
Another important call that must be answered is the call to sanctification. It is the process of making a person holy through the means of cleansing. To make a person clean, they must be washed. This is why Jesus demonstrated the act with His disciples. 
.
Sanctification is achieved through the word of God. Jesus said, "Sanctify them by your word for your word is true" - John 17:17. It is the word of God that sanctifies, not the opinions of men in the world.
.
How much of His word you're exposed to determines how holy you become. You do not become holy through religious procedures, you become clean through the word you allow to work in you.
.
It is written, "Be you holy as your Father in heaven is". Do you see the possibility of becoming holy amidst the corruption of this world or you allow the devil preach its impossibility to you?
.
Brothers and sisters, everything in the world pollutes and corrupts but your sanctification can only be achieved when you allow the Word of God to sanctify you. You can't be transformed to His image if you're not renewed in your mind by the Word.
How can a young man or woman cleanse their ways? It's by taking heed according to the Word. Don't live your life according to worldly principles, let your conversation (conduct- dressing, behavior, thought and words) be made holy by the Word and not the world.
.
Have you answered His call to sanctification?
