In my last post, I talked about the fact that Christians are called to be saints.
God chose us to be saved through sanctification and belief in the truth. (2 Thessalonians 2:13-14)
The basic requirement is that we have accepted Jesus as our Savior, asking him to forgive all our sins. We are called to belong to Jesus Christ.
Someone might say, “Why would I want to be a saint?”
These are wonderful benefits to being a saint:
The Holy Spirit helps us pray, (Romans 8:26-2
Saints will lack nothing. (Psalm 34:9)
Saints will have a glorious inheritance, (Ephesians 1:18).
Saints can sit with Christ in the heavenly places. (Eph. 2:6)
Daniel 7:18 “The (saints) of the Most High will receive the (Kingdom) and will possess it forever.”
A clean conscience is another benefit, for a saint has confessed her sins. Knowing our sins are forgiven is a great benefit.
Best of all:
We get to “share in the inheritance of the saints in light” since he has “delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” (Colossians 1:12-14).
Here is a song about saints. I hope it, and the blog, will bless you:
