“Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.
The word “sanctify” means to separate from or to purify. When we give our hearts to the Lord, the Holy Spirit is doing a work in us; sanctification.
We often enjoy the process because of the things we are ready for the Lord to clean up in our lives. The struggle is the things that He wants to change that we are not quite ready to deal with.
It is amazing how the Word of God will change us, make us better men and women, husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, friends and co-workers. So today as you read John 17, pray that the Lord will change your life. That He will sanctify you (clean you up). And here is how it happens, you spending time with Him in His word. God loves you and has a plan for your life. Let the word of God strengthen and encourage you to be more like Jesus!
