1 Thessalonians 3:11-13
2 Cor 7:1 & Phil 2:12-13

Cody John Simpson


  • This tension describes the journey of the Christian life. There are many terms for it: sanctification, transformation, following Christ.
  • 2 Cor 7:1 & Phil 2:12-13
  • While it may look like we’re all just trying to get to that place called “Satisfaction” look again at Paul’s prayer: It anticipates this process until the end of time. 
  • Anxiety begins to form in our lives not only because we assess ourselves poorly but because we feel helpless to change. The weight of expectation is too great. 
  • We ultimately aren’t judged on our sanctification but are accepted through the death of Jesus.
  • JI Packer’s three-legged stool of the Christian life:
    • Doctrine
    • Experience
    • Practice

What can you begin doing to know God better?
