John 17:19

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

 

The word “sanctify” does not necessarily mean to make holy, as Jesus is holy as to His personal character. The thought is that the Lord set Himself apart for the work His Father sent Him to do – that is, His sacrificial death. We should be set apart for the world and to the work He desires for us to do.
