Now that I have received salvation and understand what it means, what comes next?

Sanctification is the ongoing process of submitting to God’s Word and Spirit to complete the development of Christ’s character in us. Sanctification is not about perfection, it is about progression. It is the Holy Spirit’s continued work in us to become more like him.

God is the one who does the work of making us more like Christ. We participate in that work by continually turning away from sin and demonstrating our faith in Christ by obeying God’s commands.
