Holiness and Sanctification (2)

1 Cor 6:17 But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit. John 14:20 In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. 15:4 Abide in Me and I in you.

[Part 2 of 2] Once again I would like to take as an illustration the simple matter of making tea. Tea is an element, and "teaification" is the process of making tea. Suppose you have a cup of plain water. In order to tea-ify the water, you need to place a tea bag into it. When a tea bag is first put into water, the water may seem to remain the same. It seems to be little more than plain water. But after a period of time and some action of stirring, the water will become tea-ified; that is, tea is added to the water and mingled with it. Hence, we may say that the water is under the process of tea-ification. Eventually, the tea is in the water, and the water is in the tea. This means that the element of tea is mingled with the water. As a result of this tea-ification, the tea and water are blended together to make one beverage. Actually, this kind of drink is tea- water. For the tea to be in the water is one thing, but for the water to pass through the process of tea-ification is another. In like manner, we need to be blameless in the element of holiness, and we also need to undergo the process of sanctification so that we may enjoy God's salvation daily and even hourly.
