I AM A SAINT
Do you more easily identify with being a sinner or a saint? Do you know who God says you are?
If you are born again, God calls you a saint! Not because of your exemplary behaviour or abundant good works, but because you have put your faith in Jesus and the transaction He made available on the cross.
Your filthy record has been traded in for Jesus’ spotless record and perfect righteousness. You have been made brand new. You have a fresh start and the creator of the entire universe is living inside you!
In most of his letters Paul addressed the church as ‘saints’. This wasn’t because they were doing great. The rest of the letter was usually calling them to account on all sorts of areas where they were falling short. But at the core, they were still undeniably saints, purely because they had turned from their sins and trusted in Jesus and what He had done on the cross. Thus becoming God’s ‘holy ones’ set apart for a special purpose in this world, made possible by the Holy Spirit dwelling inside them.
It’s all to do with what CHRIST HAS DONE rather than what we have failed to do.
Receive your new identity in Christ today. Say with me, outloud;
I AM A SAINT! I AM HOLY, BLAMELESS, WITHOUT REPROACH. I AM PLEASING TO MY HEAVENLY FATHER. I AM WASHED WHITER THAN SNOW.
