In this episode, Pastor John talks about why Christians are called saints, even though Christians are sinners.
Oscar Wilde once wrote, ”The only difference between the saint and the sinner…is that every saint has a past…and every sinner has a future.” Anyone who’s a Christian is called a “saint” in the Bible. 1 Corinthians 1, verse 2 says, “to those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints together with all those who in every place call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ …” The word “sanctified” comes from the same Greek root, as the word that is commonly translated…“saints.” Christians are saints, by virtue of their connection with Jesus Christ and increasingly making their daily life more closely matched with their position IN Christ. That’s why there’s no problem that “every saint has a past…and every sinner has a future.” If you’ve never accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, just pray this prayer out loud or to yourself: “Jesus, come into my heart. I proclaim you my Lord and Savior. Forgive me of my sins.” If you really meant what you prayed, you now have the Holy Spirit in you, to help lead you and guide you.
