Today we get to hear from Gavin Ortlund on the topic of sanctification. Gavin is a husband, father, pastor, and writer. We talked about how the Lord uses the seasons and challenges of life to encourage us to turn to the Word, to pray, and to be actively involved in our local churches - all things that the Lord uses to bring about holiness in us. We pray this episode encourages you as you continue to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, knowing that it is God who works in you for his good pleasure. 





  • What means has the Lord used to grow you in the grace and knowledge of Christ throughout your life?
  • How does rooting your sanctification in your justification allow you to rest in God’s work?
  • How might you shift your prayer life to increase your reliance on the role of the Holy Spirit in your sanctification?
  • Sanctification is a (sometimes slow) process. How does knowing that bring you encouragement as you see the ways God is gradually growing you?
  • What might you do or change based on what you learned in this week’s episode?
