12 C. S. Lewis in Mere Christianity: C. S. Lewis in Mere Christianity:...fallen man is not simply an imperfect creature who needs improvement; he is a rebel who must lay down his arms. Laying down your arms, surrendering, saying you are sorry, realizing that you have been on the wrong track and getting ready to start life over again from the ground floor - that is the only way out of our 'hole'. This process of surrender - this movement full speed astern - is what Christians call repentance.

13 Regeneration - what happens because of the Holy Spirit The convert dies - that is why baptism must be a burial. Romans 6:3: “All of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death.” The convert dies - that is why baptism must be a burial. Romans 6:3: “All of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death.” There is a union -“if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.” Romans 6:5 There is a union -“if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.” Romans 6:5 Sins are forgiven and the gift of the Holy Spirit is given. Sins are forgiven and the gift of the Holy Spirit is given.

17 Sanctification, Baptism and the Holy Spirit Acts 2:38 Acts 2:38 I Cor. 6:11 “And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” I Cor. 6:11 “And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” II Thess. 2:13 “But we ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the first fruits to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth.” II Thess. 2:13 “But we ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the first fruits to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth.”

18 Sanctification- Continual Renewal Sanctification is the process by which the Holy Spirit makes us more like Christ in all that we do, think, and desire. True sanctification is impossible apart from the atoning work of Christ on the cross and the indwelling Holy Spirit because only after our sins are forgiven and we have the presence of the Holy One can we begin to lead a holy life.

19 Sanctification involves more than a mere moral reformation of character, brought about by the power of the truth: it is the work of the Holy Spirit bringing the whole nature more and more under the influences of the new person implanted in the soul in regeneration. In other words, sanctification is the carrying on to perfection the work begun in regeneration, and it extends to the whole man for the entirety of life.
