This should be a tough passage for Steve and myself. So its tough to talk about sanctification without the making it sound like a Christ plus kind of thing. But yet it says in Hebrews that we have not yet resisted to the point of shedding OUR blood. I am not even sure how to get started here.
Below is the complete passage:
God Disciplines His Sons
4In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. 5And you have forgotten that word of encouragement that addresses you as sons:
“My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline,
and do not lose heart when he rebukes you,
6because the Lord disciplines those he loves,
and he punishes everyone he accepts as a son.”[a]
