Grace Anatomy: Sanctifying - Perfecting Us

Sanctifying Grace is a purifying and cleansing process that continues throughout our lives as disciples of Jesus Christ. Sanctifying grace is the “bearing fruit” part of God’s grace. Through sanctification, according to the Discipline, “we are enabled to increase in the knowledge and love of God and in love for our neighbor” (Section 60). For Wesley sanctifying grace is the power that leads us on toward becoming more Christlike.

1 Peter 1:13-16

13Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: 15But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. (KJV)
