The Christ Church Question of the Week – with Rev. Dr. John Piper

Q. 32What do justification and sanctification mean?

(Bold is children’s answer)

Justification means our declared righteousness before God,  made possible by Christ’s death and resurrection for us. Sanctification means our gradual, growing righteousness, made possible by the Spirit’s work in us.
