William S. Plummer        

Justification is an act of God complete at once and forever.  Sanctification is a work of God begun in regeneration, conducted through life and completed at death.  The former is equal and perfect in all; the latter is not equal in all, nor perfect in any till they lay aside the flesh.  In justification God imputes [that is, credits] to us the righteousness of Christ; in sanctification he [imparts] grace, and enables us to exercise it.
