Sanctification is an ongoing and lifelong process
As the vestiges of this world the Spirit strips away
The sin that we hide; the thin veneer of our pride
Is exposed to the Light; as night is turned into day
The idols that captivate us; those beautiful illusions
Shatter as Truth’s Sword smashes them one by one
Taking their place is God’s Holiness and His grace
The masterpiece-to-be; a mirror image of God’s Son
II Corinthians 3:18 (NASB)
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.
I Corinthians 15:49 (NASB) Just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we will also bear the image of the heavenly.
Philippians 1:6 (NASB)
For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
God the Father answers our prayers
Many times in ways we cannot see
For He is sovereign; we are not
And only He knows what will be
His thoughts are not our thoughts
They are infinitely above our own
He is good always; all of the time
He does not leave us to go it alone
He views us through His Son Jesus
Made spotless in His righteousness
By His Spirit, we have been sealed
And He sanctifies us unto holiness
I Chronicles 29:11 (NASB)
Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O LORD, and You exalt Yourself as head over all.
Galatians 3:26 (NASB)
26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
