“Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth” (John 17:17)

May 28, 2011

What Jesus prayed for us. “Sanctify” (make holy, set apart) them. Jesus prayed that the Father would cause His Word to set us apart for special use. Holiness is not so much the absence of sin as the presence of God’s special calling and spiritual life within us.
