Do you know that Jesus died for you? Do you believe he is your Lord and Savior? If yes, then you have been redeemed from being a sinful person into being a saintly person.
Sainthood is achieved one day at a time, one little action at a time. Falling into sin (which we do every day) is not a definition of who you are. It’s an interruption of your true identity, which was made in the image of God and which is being shaped by the Holy Spirit.
Are you a little holier today than you were yesterday? Have you learned something recently that drew you closer to Christ? Are you making any sacrifices for the sake of loving someone? If yes, then you have entered into your sainthood more fully.
And God is very pleased with you!
