Peter 1:2 KJV — Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

1. In uncommon virtues faith hope charity
2. In holy passion for the things of God. That first love
3. In turning from every sin and deliverance from evil
4. It should be mentioned sanctification is denied to the casual mind, the lovers of this world, and the unfaithful
If sanctification is commanded and enjoined to the life that is pleasing to God it ought to be preached and sought.
The LORD is ever Jehovah M’Kaddesh
