Today on matters with medical Dr. Cheryl Davis. She completes her series on the three distinctive aspects of sanctification process of becoming spiritually mature in the faith, leaving behind a life compromised by sin.

Now here's Dr. Cheryl Davis on the final episode of getting stuck in the middle of the sanctification process of growing closer to God and living the abundant life. 23 1080 not the way a 20 tightening shall come forth as gold. Fire can give life or destroy in the case of gold. It removes the impurities to deliver a more authentic product is the same way our walk as a believer the phrase, but he know it the way that take means that God knew us before we were needed in our mother's claim and he knows our inward thoughts and the very fiber of our being, our experiences in this life are tailored to his divine plan. According to the way that I take, meaning the pathway that I will have to walk down according to who I am, based on where I need to be and at what time.

I finally decide to submit when he has tried me guarantees the process and the fire.

Or hence the struggle travels in our lives are not random they are allowed by God to develop within us.

Christ likeness to set us apart for him, but in the church today. We are getting stuck in the middle.

We are accepting Christ as our Savior and experiencing positional sanctification and becoming complacent when we move into experiential sanctification, and we begin to experience the suffering aspect of our walk with Christ, we are resisting the process and stunting our growth as Christians. This teaching is not popular in the churches in America. We focus on the blessings of God and we assume that they will come surely from our position of being a believer being a believer positionally gives us eternal life, but experienced trial and suffering gives us relationship with Christ and releases the power the Holy Spirit within our lives to live a life of holiness before him. Without the power of the Holy Spirit. We will live a defeated life wrought with sin that loses its authenticity and looks exactly like the world. That is why Christians today are experiencing some of the same issues as the world because of our resistance to experiential sanctification. We have settled for just enough of Jesus to make us blameless, but we have held onto our sinful nature, cutting off the power that the Holy Spirit so wants to give us. But our vessels are so unholy and unclean, that the spirit will not dwell within us.

We are not putting away the world and setting ourselves apart to God said that the Holy Spirit can use us the Holy Spirit through the body of believers is the lifeline of the church. Experiential sanctification is a rate limiting step and releasing the power of the Holy Spirit within the church in the last days we must submit ourselves to his leadership in our lives to allow him to cut away the impurities so that we can be an authentic witness to a lost world. Finally at the end of the spectrum is ultimate sanctification is that aspect of our final perfection and will be ours. Only in glory. First John 32 says he loves now we are children of God, and he has not yet been revealed, when we shall be, but we know that when he is revealed, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is the end of the spectrum is when we come face-to-face with God that is mentioned in Ephesians Ephesians 526 and 27 says that he might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of the water by the word that he might present her to himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she should be holy and without blemish.

The mayor December the Lamb will be problems before God and this is our ultimate glorification spectrum depends on will the middle and cries the end will always justify the means. No matter what. Whatever the Lord calls us to be ordained to use it for our good as he did in the lives of Joseph.

I urge you today to make the choice to submit yourself to leadership in your life to allow the Holy Spirit, believers make the church. The church sees power in these last days he resented the gospel to a nation before distilling.
