What does it mean to be sanctified? What does the Apostle Paul mean in Galatians 2:20, that “I have been crucified and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life that I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me”?
In this book, Ester Tanumihardjo shows readers that being sanctified is not necessarily a fearsome process that only calls for exceptional upheavals in her life. Rather, it also demands that she avails her inner-life humbly to be judged and purified by her loving Father on a daily basis. Story by story, Ester shows that it is not just through life’s extraordinary events that she hears God. Instead, the Holy Spirit speaks to her when she is at her weakest and most invisible, in the smallest and most mundane of places and situations. She learns to obey His voice in her everyday encounters as a ministry worker, woman, sister, daughter, wife and mother, and testifies that victorious Christian living starts right where He has placed us, with our moment by moment, hour by hour, day by day conscious denial of our self, so that in becoming nothing, Christ lives in us.
