Q. 35. What is sanctification?
A. Sanctification is the work of God’s free grace, whereby we are renewed in the whole man after the image of God,and are enabled more and more to die unto sin, and live unto righteousness.

Q. 36. What are the benefits which in this life do accompany or flow from justification, adoption, and sanctification?
A. The benefits which in this life do accompany or flow from justification, adoption, and sanctification, are,

assurance of God’s love,

peace of conscience,

joy in the Holy Ghost,

increase of grace,

and perseverance therein to the end.

How amazing is His grace. That He would even adopt us and sanctify us…. but all those things above… we have. We have now! Isn’t  that something to rejoice in?

Be reminded of this each and every day and live your life accordingly.
