1 Corinthians 1:2 - Unto the Church of God which is at Corinth, to them
that are made holy in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in
every place call upon the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and
Sanctification (Part 3):

Sanctification refers to a holiness that has been imparted. The Holy Spirit
is not accounted or imputed to us, but has been imparted into our lives.
Sanctification is certainly God-likeness, because Christ Jesus and the Holy
Spirit dwell in us, but it is also a continual and ongoing obedience that
allows the divine nature we have received to mature (2 Peter 1:3-11). Our
lives must be surrendered to God so we might be conformed in every way to
the image of the Son (Romans 8:29). The new birth granted us the authority
of sonship, and we must be dedicated to conforming to the image of the Son
-we must participate with the life that was imparted. Had we not been given
a new spirit, we would not have the ability to agree with God and be led
and taught by Him; therefore, sanctification was essential to beginning
with God (Romans 8:14-16; 1 Corinthians 2:12; Galatians 5:16, 25; Ezekiel
36:26). We have been made holy by the blood of Jesus to receive the Holy
Spirit, Who alone supplies all the insight and ability we need to live the
life of Christ -which is the life of holiness. Therefore, by submitting to
His leadership, we are able to be as He is in this world, to walk as He
walks, and to be holy as He is Holy (1 John 2:6, 4:17; 1 Peter 1:15-16).

Oh, the life changing power of the blood of the Lamb.
Oh, the life changing power of the blood of the Lamb.
Oh, the blood, the blood, the blood, the blood of Jesus!

See Him seated on the the throne!
Death and hell He has conquered!
Oh the blood, the blood, the blood, the blood of Jesus!

Acknowledge every good thing Christ Jesus has imparted to you! (Philemon
