Sanctification

And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules. – Ezekiel 36:27

Election is always to sanctification. Those whom Christ chooses out of mankind, He chooses not only that they be saved, but that they may bear fruit, and that it can be seen. All other election beside this is a mere vain delusion and a miserable invention of man. Where there is no visible fruit of sanctification, we may be sure there is no election. – J. C. Ryle
