Sanctification Challenge Week 1

In our search for sanctification, where do we start?

We start at the foot of the cross.

We start where it was made possible for us.

And we linger there.

Until "God himself, the God of peace sanctify you through and through." 1 Thessalonians 5:23

Our challenge this week is very simple yet crucial to any Christian life. Every day this week spend time at the foot of the cross and allow God to sanctify you.

Every day do the following (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18):

  • Be joyful always
  • pray continually
  • give thanks in all circumstances
Every day

  • Test everything
  • Hold on to the good
  • Avoid every kind of evil
Remember Romans 12:1 "Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering."


We have a tool to help you plan this challenge because if you do not have a plan you plan to fail.... So here is a link to a document that will allow you to check your progress throughout the week. Print it out, put it on your fridge or by your bathroom mirror, inside your Bible, share it with a friend or two.

Do not worry or give up if you missed a day. Life happens. Just continue where you left of.
