redemption & sanctification
Not too long ago, I read/heard somewhere that the works of God's grace is twofold. I don't know why but I was drawn to it all! The simple beauty in it.
So, the first work of grace is REDEEMING grace. This is the grace that is all about redemption of your soul from the depths of death, through Jesus Christ. Redeeming grace, that's all it's about.
The second work of grace is SANCTIFYING grace. This is after you have been redeemed. This grace sanctifies, further purifies and cleanses you to better reflect the image of God. If we're living with sanctifying grace, we acknowledge that while we're redeemed, we're still a work in progress, waiting on the potter to mold us. Most people are in this stage.
The end! Hope you got something outta this :)
