    Sanctification happens when you repent of your sins and are converted from darkness to light

      Troy Day what about repenting of unbelief, of self righteousness, of pride, of works based salvation, etc?

      Are these not sins that need to be repented of in order to be saved?

      Troy Day when one changes your mind about unbelief, and first believe in Jesus to guarantee you eternal life; you are repenting about unbelief. Repentance = 180 degree turn and agreeing with God. But i dont believe repentance of behavioural sins is a necessary condition of initial saving faith. Bur repentance is compulsory for a believer to gain rewards in the Millennium.

    In one sense yes, and in another, no. With the instant sanctification of the rebirth of our spirits, we have holiness within. However, at the soulish level of our thoughts, emotions and behavior, that personal holiness must be worked out into our daily lives.

    First Corinthians 1:30 is a good verse to summarize our sanctified, or set-apart, position in Christ: “But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.”
    This is an absolute, perfect, and objective thing. Positional sanctification takes place instantaneously at salvation, irrespective of how little it may or may not immediately show up in our lives. The Corinthians, who had a long way to go before they would be considered “saintly” by outside observers (and who did, after all, often have rather rough backgrounds), are addressed by Paul in these words: “And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Cor 6:11)
