TEXT: EZEKIEL 36:25-27
(25) Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
(26) A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
(27) And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
KEY VERSE: MATTHEW 5:8
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Sanctification is a Christian experience in which a Believer receives inner cleansing from sins and is purged from inward struggles and defilements such as pride, jealousy, anger, malice, hatred, lust, greed, bitterness, evil thoughts, envy etc. Sanctification does to a Believer what rinsing does to a cloth that was washed with detergent. After salvation experience, a Believer needs sanctification for heart purity and holiness. A Believer that is saved needs to pray in faith in order to receive this experience. It makes one’s heart clean and pure. Sanctification comes after one is saved.
Sanctification also means dedication, consecration and set apart for God’s use. This work of grace makes one not to commit sin. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God (1 John 3:9). When the heart is pure, the mouth will produce clean words. The eye will love to see undefiled things. The ear will also love to hear gracious words and detest sinful acts like worldly music and the rest. Sanctification is holiness.
It is commonly noticed that after salvation experience, the heart often manifests some inbred sins. This was manifested in the lives of the disciples of Jesus. And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest (Luke 22:24). Can you see self-seeking? The self in them was not destroyed even though they were saved.
There was fleshly struggle and self-promotion. May be you are the same. Born again but you can still notice some carnality in you. You want people to recognize you. You can notice envy in you. You harbor bitterness against someone. It means your heart is not sanctified. This means holiness is not complete in you. The Bible says without holiness, no man shall see the Lord. It is dangerous for a Believer to live with an unsanctified heart.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It takes purity of heart to see the Lord. Be pure in heart.
SONG FOR THE DAY: Sanctify me Lord, purify me Lord, make me Holy….
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Psalm 50-52; Acts 27:1-25

Lord, I want to see you. Make me pure in heart so I can meet you face to face. All those inbred sins that come after the salvation experience may I be able to overcome. I pray that all the carnality in me would be destroyed, and that holiness would be complete in me in Jesus name, Amen.

My prayer is a sanctified heart, a heart dead to sin in all level and form, a pure and a holy heart like my Savior Jesus Christ. I hunger and yawn for this heart that is dead to sin and hidden Christ Jesus. A heart free from struggles, a perfect heart in Christ Jesus. Amen and Amen!
