Sanctified

1 Corinthians 6:11 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (NIV)

The word “sanctified” means to be set apart.  When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, God sets us apart.  He expects us to be different from those unsanctified.  He has a specific purpose for us.  Our question is can people tell we are different form the unbelievers?  Do we have to wear a cross around our neck or have some kind of Christian symbol on our car for people to know we are different?  They should be able to tell by our speech, what we do, what we don’t do and even how we drive.  Think about what you did yesterday, what you said, what you didn’t do and how you drove.  Were you a reflection of Jesus?  Let us practice being true to our sanctification.  Let us demonstrate to the world how a sanctified person acts, speaks and the thing we don’t do.  Let us consistently honor our calling to follow our Lord Jesus, God’s Son, by reflecting Him in all we are.
