Sanctified through the offering of the Body of Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 10:5-10 (ESV)
Consequently, when Christ came into the world, he said,
"Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired,
but a body have you prepared for me;
[6] in burnt offerings and sin offerings
you have taken no pleasure.
[7] Then I said, 'Behold, I have come to do your will, O God,
as it is written of me in the scroll of the book.' "
[8] When he said above, "You have neither desired nor taken pleasure in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings" (these are offered according to the law), [9] then he added, "Behold, I have come to do your will." He abolishes the first in order to establish the second. [10] And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

“We have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” Funny how evangelicals keep telling us that we need to sanctify ourselves, attain sanctification etc. And the Bible keeps talking about how we have been sanctified. Hmmm.
