Abstract: The Greek word pneuma offers insight into the difference between salvation and sanctification as understood by the Acts church. Salvation is cleansing from sin, symbolized by water images including water baptism. Sanctification is filling with the Holy Spirit, symbolized by air images including a dove. The word pneuma means spirit, breath, air, or wind. This essay suggests that the Acts church would have conceived of sanctification as exchanging our human breath, for the Holy Breath of God. Salvation changes us from the outside in, and sanctification changes us from the inside out.
