Part 2 - The Sanctifying Work of Christ
Overview: Separated in the Light of Christ
One aspect of the finished and sanctifying work of Christ is the giving of light through the Holy Spirit. God's people are set apart from the world in that they have the light of the knowledge of God. Paul the Apostle correlates this to the first day of creation: "For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." Thus Jesus said, "I am the light of the world."
