Rev. Anthony Thompson with Pastor John Snyder
In this personal and moving episode of The Walk Podcast, Rev. Anthony Thompson talks to Pastor John about the tragic loss of his wife in the Charleston church shooting and the power of forgiveness. While the murder of his wife devastated Anthony Thompson, he and three other relatives of victims chose to privately and publicly forgive the shooter. Years later, the church and community still struggle to understand the family members’ deliberate choice to forgive the racist murderer. But as Charlestonians have witnessed these incredible acts of forgiveness, something significant has happened to the community – black and white leaders and residents have united, coming together peaceably and even showing acts of selfless love.
Quote of the Week: There is no justification without sanctification, no forgiveness without renewal of life, no real faith from which the fruits of new obedience do not grow. -Martin Luther
Theology Matters: What Are Justification and Sanctification?
By Guy Waters via Ligonier Ministries
The words justification and sanctification have largely fallen out of use in Western culture. Sadly, they are also fading from sight in the Christian church. One reason this decline is distressing is that the Bible uses the words justification and sanctification to express the saving work of Christ for sinners. That is to say, both terms lie at the heart of the biblical gospel. So, what does the Bible teach about justification and sanctification? How do they differ from one another? How do they help us understand better the believer’s relationship with Jesus Christ?
