Sanctification Is The Art Of Getting Used To Justification

Leave a comment

This is from an excerpt by a book on Galatians by Daniel Bush and Noel Due.
I’ve never heard of Bush, but Due is a longtime favourite. I can’t tell who wrote what, and the quote at the end of the paragraph is by neither.

Certainly there is struggle and effort to the Christian life, but it is not where we think. It is not a struggle to be holy and practice holiness; this is trying to be perfected in the flesh. It is a struggle to continue in the way we began—namely, to believe our justification is true. Gerhard Forde put it well when he said that “sanctification is the art of getting used to justification.”
