One of our biggest problems we face as Christians is that we often try to put Sanctification ahead of Justification. The classic “cart-before-the-horse syndrome”. Real Sanctification can not begin until we come to terms with our Justification and what Christ has already done for us on the Cross. In fact, these very things are what powers and fuels our Sanctification. We are welcome to look at Salvation as: Sanctification, Justification, and Glorification, but we will always be working for something we already have.
