As we begin 2018 many people have made New Year’s resolutions to become better people. Every Christian lives with a constant resolution: to become more like Jesus. The religious word used is sanctification; it means to become holy. This is not a religious version of culture’s self-help, self-actualization pursuit; this is the all out surrender to something greater than self—to Jesus. But in the process we become more whole, more gracious and trusting, more generous and beautiful people—more like Jesus himself. So as we begin 2018, we explore the journey—sanctify!
