This article is very comforting to me. When I first turned to God last July and repented of my sins, I thought I was “okay”, and I tried to start living my life as a Christian. But there was still a yearning and restlessness in my heart that I didn’t understand. After a while with more instruction and study, I realized that although I had turned to God and asked him to forgive me, there was yet one thing God wanted me to do–be baptized for remission of my sins. I believe God began a work in me when I turned to him and prayed for forgiveness. Not sure exactly what you mean by sanctification and justification, but I believe God continued the work in me after that by leading me to understand my need for baptism. I think he is continuing to work in me as I learn more and more of what he wants me to be and do as his child.
