Are some Christians more sanctified or holy than others?

It would appear, by judging outward appearance that there are those who are more holy than others. It would only seem right that the great evangelists like Billy Graham and D.L. Moody be more holy than we simply laymen. However, this would mean that we obtain sanctification by our own good works. The Bible says that the work is of Christ, and by Him. Therefore, the same Jesus that died for the sins of Billy Graham, also died for you and I. According to Hebrews 10:10;14, sanctification took place through Jesus, and it happened one time.

By this will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.(Heb. 10:10)

For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified. (Heb. 10:14)
