"If regeneration has to do with our nature, justification with our standing, and adoption with our position, then sanctification has to do with our character & conduct. In justification we are declared righteous in order that, in sanctification, we may become righteous. Justification is what God does for us, while sanctification is what God does in us. Justification puts us into a right relationship with God, while sanctification exhibits the fruit of that relationship- a life seperated from a sinful world and dedicated to God."
- William Evans, The Great Doctrines of the Bible
