To Confuse the Two, We Loose the Great Weapon in the Fight

It is crucial in the fight for joy that we not confuse or combine justification and sanctification.  Confusing them will, in the end, undermine the gospel and turn justification by faith into justification by performance.  If that happens, the great gospel weapon in the fight for joy will fall from our hands.
