Sanctification When "It Is Finished"

How is Christian sanctification different than so-called growth, or personal advance, in any other system of belief?

Jared Wilson points us to the gospel's unique declaration, and how it changes everything for Christian sanctification.

Celebrate with us, and wrestle through, the simplicity and complexity of God's work and ours in the mystery of sanctification at our National Conference — September 28–30 in Minneapolis. Register today before 11:59 PM (CDT) for the early bird rate.
