Jesus, as our High Priest
The word sanctify means to consecrate or be set apart. All throughout scripture, God’s people were set apart and consecrated for his purposes. Jesus wants us to live in this world, but He doesn’t want the world living in us. When Christ is living in our hearts, there is little room left for the world to occupy. We can never be truly set apart from the world until Jesus is truly a part of us…in every area of our lives.
