The Word of God — The Bible.
Jesus Christ made it very clear with one statement. Read John 17:17 to look at Jesus’ thoughts on Scripture. John 17:17 reads as follows:
“Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.”
Jesus went onto say. “Just as You sent Me into the world, I also sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, so that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.”
Then again in verse 20, Jesus speaks about us.
“I am not asking on behalf of these alone, but also for those who believe in Me through their word,…”
One thing that is abundantly clear is that Jesus Christ considered God’s word as essential to sanctification.
