The word: sanctify

After John 17:17

I considered the word:
sanctify. I considered
that it is a complex word,
deeply layered, so complex
that its simplicity is often
missed. To sanctify is:
to clean, to cleanse,
to wipe away the dirt,
erasing it. To sanctify is:
to separate, to set aside,
to partition from its context,
creating a new one. To sanctify is:
to purify, to make holy,
to establish a temple containing
truth: the word. The end
becomes the means
becomes the end.
