Often, people who have been in church awhile use language that is unfamiliar to non-believers and new believers alike. Sometimes, even the Christians who use those words don’t understand their full meaning or importance. In this series, we will try to better understand words used in the Christian faith and their application for believers in our new teaching series called Churchy Words.

We encourage you to spend some time with God this week and go a bit deeper on this topic. Please consider these study questions for further reflection:
Sanctification is the ongoing work of Christ in us. It is past, present and future tense - You have been changed and saved, you are being changed and saved, and you will be changed and saved when you will be with God in heaven. Think about this and talk about what this means to you.
It is always God that does the transformational work in us (See Philippians 2:12-13) God intervenes in your life and begins a good work that he will be faithful to complete in you. Sometimes, it might be hard for us to recognize just how much God has done for you and in you. Think about the ways God has transformed/is transforming you. (the way you think, act, where you go, who you hang out with, what you read, etc.)
Some of the truths about sanctification that were shared on Sunday were: The Word of Truth Changes You, Wise People Change You, and Suffering, Struggles and Troubles Change You. Look at each of these 3 ways God uses to transform us and share how he has used these in your life.
