God meets us where we are, yes, but he does not leave us there. The grace which saves us is also the grace which transforms us. Instead of looking at salvation and sanctification as two separate entities altogether I think it is more helpful to look at them as two sides of the same door. It is useful theologically to dissect them but practically you cannot have one without the other. They are eternally conjoined. The man who trusts in Christ is the man who lives for Christ.
