The CROSS Examination :: Place of Sanctification


The CROSS on which Jesus Christ was nailed is a place of divine sanctification. To absolve, anoint, bless, cleanse, consecrate, dedicate, deify, enshrine, glorify, hallow, purify, set apart and worship are some of the Thesaurus words used to describe the word ‘sanctify’. As a verb (implying action), the word sanctify means to hold in highest esteem.

God held his creation (man) at the highest esteem, and sent His Son who shed his blood on the Cross, to sanctify mankind. Jesus’ blood sanctifies and sets us apart! (Hebrews 13:12).

Let us cross examine ourselves and sanctify Jesus Christ apart by setting Him and holding Him in the highest esteem. Can it be said of you/me, that we sanctify (set apart) God.

Hebrews 13:12 (KJV)
12 Wherefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.
