Let's talk about sanctification.
If there's one thing I have been learning lately it is this: sanctification is anything but pretty, but it is so very holy.
If we're being honest, there's nothing pretty about half-loves, strongholds, or rotting flesh caked on your heart. But there is something absolutely stunning about a Savior who is jealous for you, has the power to break every chain, & can bring dead things to life.
& hallelujah, this is the Jesus I serve! He is not one that is detoured by my imperfections & stench of death. But instead He embraces me tightly & whispers This is going to hurt right now, but hold on, because it will make you look more like Me. I serve One that loves me enough to not leave me in the muck & mire He found me in. & now I am buoyed up & carried on by a Life greater than my own.
