Are you a saint or a sinner?   The word saint in the Greek means holy, holy one, holy ones.  Are you holy or a sinner? 

The name saint is in the New Testament about 60 times.  Paul addresses the Ephesians as saints in Eph 1:1 and you will find saints in Eph 1:15, 1:18, 2:19, 3:8, 3:18, 4:12, 5:3, 6:18.  Paul obviously does not think of us as sinners.

Romans 5:19 “For as by one man's disobedience (Adam) many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one (Jesus) shall many be made righteous.”  “For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he lives, he lives unto God.  Likewise, reckon you also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Rom 6:10-11)  “Then he adds: "Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more." (Heb 10:17)  If you have asked Jesus to be your Lord and Savior, you are no longer a sinner but a saint! 

See yourself as God sees you!  “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”  (2 Cor 5:17)  “For he has made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”  (2 Cor 5:21)  We are new creations and are righteous with God’s righteousness!

So all you saints, holy ones, live today believing and praising God for who you are and enjoy your day!

Many blessings,
