Here's what wikipedia says about Sanctification:
The term denotes both inanimate objects set apart for special purposes (e.g. the Solomon's Temple vessels) and the change brought about by God in a believer at the point of salvation or justification which continues throughout their life and does not end until the believer reaches the afterlife, unless complete holiness is possible in their “vain” life on earth in the final days before the Second Coming of Christ.
In our instant-fix society, this long and grueling process is difficult to accept. I've been practicing patience for quite a few years now, and yet my children make me feel like I have none and never really had any to know how to use it if I did. Maybe it's not just patience, but also self-control. I don't think I need super Nanny to come over or anything like that, because I just need the Holy Spirit to come over my sin nature more. I know He will it's just....am I allowing Him? We have free access to the fruits of the Spirit and yet sometimes I feel like I'm like joy, what's joy?
I have recently started a routine with the girls on Sunday nights where we ask God to help us with one fruit of the Spirit each week. Then we go around in a circle and pray for the one to the left. It's been a fun thing to start even though the results are not quite clearly seen yet!
