Can you locate the seven differences between justification and sanctification in this story?

Which doctrinal term refers to the:
- Turning of the will?
- Living which results from the turned will?

  • Mortification - The subduing, subjecting, or dying of
  • Quickening - The enlivening, reviving, or strengthening of
    • Out of love and respect for his master's great kindness toward him, Sam willingly served him to the best of his ability.

      How many spiritual differences between justification and sanctification can be illustrated from this story by the physical differences between the redeemed servant's state and condition? Can you identify all seven?

    Regeneration, conversion, and sanctification can be distinguished from one another as follows:

    Regeneration - God planting new spiritual life in a spiritually dead sinner's heart

    Conversion - The result of regeneration; God turning the regenerated person away from living for sin to God

    Sanctification - The result of conversion - the believer living according to God's will; God's indwelling "holy-making" work - the continual dying of the person's old, sinful nature and the enlivening of the new, holy nature

      Sanctification consists of the following two parts:


    1. The mortification (dying) of the old, sinful nature

    Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

    - Romans 6:6

    And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

    - Galatians 5:24

    2. The quickening (enlivening) of the new, holy nature

    Therefore we are buried with Him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

    - Romans 6:4

    If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

    - Colossians 3:1
