Sanctification

There are sentences that I come upon that, at times, take my breath away. As I am going through F.F. Bruce’s commentary on Hebrews, I am finding a lot of those moments.

The passage is Hebrews 2

10 It was appropriate for God, for whom and through whom everything exists, to use experiences of suffering to make perfect the pioneer of salvation. This salvation belongs to many sons and daughters whom he’s leading to glory. (CEB)

Bruce says this:

“For sanctification is glory begun, and glory is sanctification completed.” 

I love those sentences that sit me back in my chair, cause my gaze to move away from the book, close my eyes, and just wonder. This was one of those times.
