TOPIC: “Qadash”

OPENING PRAYER: Father, please help me to live a sanctified life.

MEMORY VERSE: “Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both their’s and our’s:” – 1 Corinthians 1:2 (KJV)

BIBLE PASSAGE: John 17:17-19 (KJV)

17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

INTRODUCTION: “Qadash” is a Hebrew word that is translated as “sanctified.” In the Old Testament, sanctification frequently denotes the ceremonial or ritual consecration of any person or thing to God. Thus, the Hebrews, as a people, were holy unto the Lord, through the covenant with its rites and atoning sacrifices (Exodus 31:13). In the New Testament, sanctification is the second work of grace after salvation that every believer must experience. Hence, every believer is called to a wholly sanctified life.

LESSON AIM: To teach believers, how to live a sanctified life.

TEACHING OBJECTIVES: Through this lesson, students should be able to:
a. Understand what “qadash” is. b. Know the concept and process of sanctification.
c. Highlight the practices that govern a sanctified life.

i. ……………………………………………..v17b.
ii. ……………………………………….….v18b.
iii. …………….…………………………….v19b.

Teachers should fill in the gaps from the passage during the preview exercise.




i. To sanctify means to make holy or set apart for God (Exodus 29:44).
ii. Sanctification is making truly and perfectly what was defiled and sinful (Colossians 2:13).
iii. It is a progressive work of divine grace upon the soul justified by the love of Christ (Romans 3:24).
iv. It is the advanced work of the Holy Spirit in the life of a believer from the moment of salvation to perfection (1Corinthians 6:11).
v. It is gradual cleansing from a corrupt nature to a spotless nature (John 15:3; Jude 24). Every Christian should be holy as God is holy (1 Peter 1:15-16).
vi. Sanctification and truth are inseparable. Those who love to be sanctified must love the truth which is the word of God (John 17:17).

B. The Holy Spirit does the work of sanctification through:
i. God’s word (2 Thessalonians 2:13).
ii. The blood of Jesus (1John 1:7).
iii. Faith in the Lord Jesus which is an important ingredient in the work of sanctification (Galatians 2:20).

    To rejoice at Thy birth.

    Thy friend friendship suits me well,
    Both young and will sing Thy song,
    We long for Sunday School.

    Christ was Thy first teacher,
    The Holy Spirit, great teacher,
    Does manifest in thee.

    This testimony is sure,
    That God, the Father Almighty,
    Poured His blessing on Thee

    Though the sun be so bright,
    Or if the clouds be black with rain,
    I’ll be in Sunday School.

    I rejoice to see Thee,
    Will thou pass over me today?
    Without my being blest?
