“In the past tense, your sanctification has already happened. You are a saint!… In the present tense, your sanctification is now being worked out…You are being progressively sanctified. You are being saved. In the future tense, your sanctification will be perfected.” (p. 13)

And in How Does Sanctification Work? David Powlison explains to Christians how exactly this process takes place. While there are certainly common themes related to each person’s sanctification, there is not a one size fits all, cookie-cutter approach, that works the exact same way in the life of every believer. There is not a single key that unlocks the next level of Christlikeness.In fact, phrases like “just remember your justification” can actually hinder growth at in certain situations because Christians need more than exhortations to remember God’s promises in order to grow. Sometimes they need commands, other times they need a mixture of the two.

This is exactly how the Scriptures portray the vital doctrine of sanctification. It is not a flat blueprint that applies uniformly to every Christian. Rather, growing in the Lord is rich and pliable at times depending on the scenario. In no way does this mean truth is flexible. Instead, it means that truth comes at believers from various angles and life circumstances so as to shape them ever more into the image of Christ.

This book is most suited for believers at any stage in their walk with the Lord. Particularly, it will be found beneficial by those who are struggling in their growth.
