Unless sanctification is rooted in justification, and justification in election, sanctification cannot escape the poisons of subjectivism, moralism, or Pharisaism.
Sinful reasoning might tell us that what God does in changing the heart of the sinner is the most important thing God could possibly do in the salvation process. It is neo-evangelical Romanism. The great truth of justification by faith alone, however, does not deal with the acts of God within the believer, but with the saving acts of God outside the believer.
The Greek word here translated freely is elsewhere translated without cause. Yet God cannot allow his grace to override his justice. The rule of law must be upheld.
God must have valid grounds to forgive sinners and to accept them as righteous. Those grounds are also completely outside of us: The Gospel proclaims that sinners are saved by the objective, concrete acts of God in history.

The poison was inside, and how could something completely outside bring them any help? To us who are poisoned to death by that old serpent the devil, Jesus declares: The basis of salvation is not a subjective process.
If the way of salvation were simply a matter of inviting Christ into the heart or being born again by the Spirit, then Christ need not have come here to suffer and die. But no amount of sanctification or inward holiness can bridge the gulf that sin has made and put us into right relationship with God.

Read translation in: Urdu Punjabi. Sanctification is what God does in the believer; it†is not the good works of the believer.
