The act of making a thing pure and holy.
For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, even your SANCTIFICATION, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in SANCTIFICATION and honour. ( 1 Thessalonians 1:1 Mark 4:2-4 )
