DIG for Thursday the 10th of November…..you are a saint, end of…..Colossians 1 v 2

The Word is very clear on lots of things, including that if you are born again you are a saint.

Once born again your spirit was created new (2 Corinthians 5 v 17) and it was created in righteousness and true holiness (Ephesians 4 v 24)

Remember that a saint is simply a holy one.

Paul calls the members of the church saints (Colossians 1 v 2).

Being a saint has nothing to do at all with behaviour, it is all to do with birth and identity.

Before your salvation you were by birth a sinner, but after salvation you are by birth (the new birth in your spirit) a saint.

If you are a Christian do not let anyone call you a sinner, even when you sin.

And maybe more importantly do not call yourself a sinner, even when you sin.

Just as when you were a sinner no amount of good or righteous works could save you, now as a saint no amount of sin can see you lose your identity as a saint.

That is no excuse to sin however; God forbid was what Paul said.

You are a saint, you will always be a saint and a saint is the identity that God now sees when He looks at you.

Start thinking that you are a saint.

Start believing that you are a saint.

Start speaking out that you are a saint.

And once you do this the wonderful thing is that you will start to behave like a saint!

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I am no longer a sinner, I am now a saint”.

Colossians 1 v 2…..To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
