Sanctification

by

“Where there is no sanctification of life, there is no real faith in Christ. … Sanctification … is the invariable result of that vital union with Christ which true faith gives to a Christian. … The union with Christ which produces no effect on heart and life is a mere formal union, which is worthless before God. The faith which has not a sanctifying influence on the character is no better than the faith of devils. It is a ‘dead faith,’ because it is ‘alone.'”

– J.C. Ryle
