“Theologian Wayne Grudem provides a fine, concise definition of this critical doctrine: “Sanctification is a progressive work of God and man that makes us more and more free from sin and like Christ in our actual lives.”3 That’s the goal of the Christian life, isn’t it? Increasing freedom from sin and increasing resemblance to Jesus. Small groups provide an ideal context for this to occur” (Ed. C.J. Mahaney, Why Small Groups?, p. 3).
Parish Bible Studies begin again September 5. Check with your parish elder about when and where yours meets.
If you are interested in starting another study and you have some folks who want to attend with you, please let me know so I can be sure to send you the study questions in time.
