|Adventures in the Land of Canaan | Robert L. Berry, 1924||Sanctification|
"All things" means all things. The Christian who gives up all is certain of God's continual care and protection. He cannot expect to escape trouble or trial or temptation; but he is kept in these things.... They may be hurt... but they will sail on in peace in God.

|After I Believed | Mark P. Spinks||Sanctification|
I... was not completely satisfied that everything inside where I couldn't see it was just as God wanted it to be. I knew I had not done anything to displease my Lord, but I was also fairly certain that somehow He wanted something about me to be different than it was.

|Foundation Truth, Number 4 (Winter 2001) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2001||Sanctification|
The Holy Spirit brings us to this—it is far beyond the capacity of man to enter into this rest on his own. We can resist and limit God.... Or we can allow the Holy Spirit to have His way and take us from the wilderness into this spiritual land of Canaan.

|Foundation Truth, Number 5 (Spring/Summer 2001) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2001||Sanctification|
It takes time for God to teach you His voice and how to find the mind of the Lord. Look to Him now about the little decisions of life. Don't rush ahead with your own desires and wishes. Wait on Him. Pray for His direction.... He will prepare you if you let Him.

|Foundation Truth, Number 7 (Autumn 2002) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2002||Sanctification|
Making up your mind and setting your will, in themselves, are necessary to do the works of man; but, if you want to do the works of God, the work of God must be done in you first, in all its completeness.

|Four Outpourings of the Spirit | George D. Watson, 1891||Sanctification|
Some people today... have been pardoned, but have not got over into the Acts of the Apostles.... But a real Bible Christian has been through repentance at Sinai, has been reconciled at the cross of Christ, and has been baptized with the Holy Ghost at Pentecost.

|Holy Spirit Baptism and The Second Cleansing | Russell R. Byrum, 1923||Sanctification|
Only those who have received the blessed Holy Spirit of God into their hearts, the abiding Comforter, can know the sweetness of closest communion with God and the greatest measure of the joy of His presence.

|Marks of a Spiritual Mind | Elmer E. Shelhamer, 1917||Sanctification|
Men get different conceptions of what constitutes deep spirituality. And as they see things differently, their lives correspond more or less with their theories. Hence the need of a proper, Scriptural standard.

|One Thing I Do | James R. Miller, 1904||Sanctification|
If in our hearts the great master purpose is to live for Christ only, we will grow continually away from all that is worldly and unworthy, toward things which are spiritual and Divine. Paul describes himself as "...stretching forward to the things which are before."

|Sanctification | Jacob W. Byers, 1902||Sanctification|
Jesus requires the undivided heart and every affection. You cannot refuse him. He has done too much for you. He suffered without the gate that He might sanctify you with His own blood. He gave Himself... and now how can you withhold anything from Him?

|The Christian’s Secret of a Happy Life | Hannah W. Smith, 1875||Sanctification|
Today it is your happy privilege to prove, as never before, your loyal confidence in the Lord by starting out with Him on a life and walk of faith, lived moment by moment in absolute and childlike trust in Him.

|Truths on Sanctification | Ostis B. Wilson, Jr., 1943||Sanctification|
One who is justified is holy; one who is sanctified is perfected in holiness. In others words, the justified person is holy in practice or life, not committing sin; but the sanctified person is holy in nature, having had the sin nature destroyed out of his heart.

|Why I Rest All the Time | Richard J. Erickson, 2011||Sanctification|
"So then there remains a rest to the people of God. For he who has entered into his rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God did from His. Therefore let us labor to enter into that rest, lest anyone fall after the same example of unbelief."
