The simple definition of sanctification is “set apart.” It involves dedication to the services of God; and it is concerned with holiness in one's life. It is obvious that in a very real sense a person is “set apart” for God at the moment of salvation. When Paul wrote about sanctification, he did not separate being set apart from being washed by the blood of Jesus. He simply stated, “But ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified” (verse 11). The entire process of becoming a Christian was linked together in Paul's theology.
