Sanctify them by the Truth; Your word is truth John 17:17
Sanctification, deep positive personality change, has always been something I have longed for. To truly change the deep structure of who I am, shedding stuff I find troublesome, adding traits I would love to have.
The theological word for this is “sanctification.”
And here, in my reading of the Gospels, I stumbled again across one key to sanctification. Soaking yourself in the word of God, which is truth.
This is perhaps one of the easiest ways of sanctification? A soaking yourself in truth, in Scripture. Balm to the spirit.
