Next, Jude says that Christians are sanctified by God the Father. The word means to set apart. When God calls us, He calls us to something special — He calls us to a sanctified life!
About Sarah – Set Apart
Think about an Olympic athlete. For far too long, Christians have been identified by what we deny rather than by what we affirm! Far more people will be won to Christ by this positive understanding of sanctification than the negative side they think is the sum of the Faith. One of the major causes of depression today is a feeling of purposelessness.
The great message of the Christian faith is that this life is not all there is. Paul wrote in Philippians —. Marines are posted by the gate, keeping it secure. He is the Captain of our salvation and our constant Friend, Guardian and Protector. In 1 Peter 1, Peter takes what Jude says here about being called, set apart, and kept and puts it this way —. Note that — we are kept by the power of God through faith.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers. And about half an hour later, when Boxer had somewhat recovered, he was with difficulty got on to his feet, and managed to limp back to his stall, where Clover and Benjamin had prepared a good bed of straw for him. For the next two days Boxer remained in his stall. The pigs had sent out a large bottle of pink medicine which they had found in the medicine chest in the bathroom, and Clover administered it to Boxer twice a day after meals.
In the evenings she lay in his stall and talked to him, while Benjamin kept the flies off him. Boxer professed not to be sorry for what had happened. If he made a good recovery, he might expect to live another three years, and he looked forward to the peaceful days that he would spend in the corner of the big pasture. It would be the first time that he had had leisure to study and improve his mind.
He intended, he said, to devote the rest of his life to learning the remaining twenty-two letters of the alphabet. However, Benjamin and Clover could only be with Boxer after working hours, and it was in the middle of the day when the van came to take him away. The animals were all at work weeding turnips under the supervision of a pig, when they were astonished to see Benjamin come galloping from the direction of the farm buildings, braying at the top of his voice.
It was the first time that they had ever seen Benjamin excited—indeed, it was the first time that anyone had ever seen him gallop. They're taking Boxer away! Sure enough, there in the yard was a large closed van, drawn by two horses, with lettering on its side and a sly-looking man in a low-crowned bowler hat sitting on the driver's seat. And Boxer's stall was empty. Do you not see what is written on the side of that van? That gave the animals pause, and there was a hush. Muriel began to spell out the words. But Benjamin pushed her aside and in the midst of a deadly silence he read:.
Dealer in Hides and Bone-Meal. Kennels Supplied.
They are taking Boxer to the knacker's! A cry of horror burst from all the animals. At this moment the man on the box whipped up his horses and the van moved out of the yard at a smart trot. All the animals followed, crying out at the tops of their voices. Clover forced her way to the front. The van began to gather speed.
Does the Old Testament Law Still Apply?
Clover tried to stir her stout limbs to a gallop, and achieved a canter. Get out! Get out quickly! They're taking you to your death! All the animals took up the cry of "Get out, Boxer, get out! It was uncertain whether Boxer had understood what Clover had said. But a moment later his face disappeared from the window and there was the sound of a tremendous drumming of hoofs inside the van.
He was trying to kick his way out. The time had been when a few kicks from Boxer's hoofs would have smashed the van to matchwood. But alas! In desperation the animals began appealing to the two horses which drew the van to stop. Boxer's face did not reappear at the window.
Too late, someone thought of racing ahead and shutting the five-barred gate; but in another moment the van was through it and rapidly disappearing down the road. Boxer was never seen again.
Three days later it was announced that he had died in the hospital at Willingdon, in spite of receiving every attention a horse could have. Squealer came to announce the news to the others. He had, he said, been present during Boxer's last hours.

Long live Comrade Napoleon! Napoleon is always right. Here Squealer's demeanour suddenly changed. He fell silent for a moment, and his little eyes darted suspicious glances from side to side before he proceeded. It had come to his knowledge, he said, that a foolish and wicked rumour had been circulated at the time of Boxer's removal.
Some of the animals had noticed that the van which took Boxer away was marked "Horse Slaughterer," and had actually jumped to the conclusion that Boxer was being sent to the knacker's. It was almost unbelievable, said Squealer, that any animal could be so stupid. Surely, he cried indignantly, whisking his tail and skipping from side to side, surely they knew their beloved Leader, Comrade Napoleon, better than that?
But the explanation was really very simple. The van had previously been the property of the knacker, and had been bought by the veterinary surgeon, who had not yet painted the old name out.
