Book Summary of The Gospel Mystery of Sanctification by Walter Marshall


Sanctification is crucial for the Christian life. Without holiness, no one can see the holy God. However, confusion tends to run rampant when it comes to the place of holiness in the Christian life. 

Pursuing holiness will not earn our salvation or prepare us to be saved. Holiness flows from our union with Christ. The Holy Spirit unites us to Christ through faith, which shows the indispensable nature of faith for our salvation and our sanctification. This is the foundation for holiness: we live a holy life as one who is in Christ because we are in Christ.

This is the view of Scripture and highlights the importance of faith for our initial coming to Christ and obeying God’s law as revealed in Scripture. Without the Trinity, God’s Word, and faith, holiness for a Christian is not possible. God has given His children ample provision in Christ for our sanctification.
