Inner Freedom

John 17:17-19

17 "Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth."
18 "As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world."
19 "And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth."

Often believers in Christ are shocked when a prominent Christian or well-known minister is caught in some sin if they have not allowed that truth to take root in their lives. If we are not careful, we can compartmentalize the truth and not allow God's truth to penetrate us at the core of our being. We can have "head knowledge" of the Word and not "heart knowledge". Sanctification is when the burning reality of God's cleansing truth is allowed into every single room and compartment of our lives. In other words, we do not have any secret rooms where we have shut out the light.
