Saints or Sinners?

My pastor Dwayne Burks said once or twice that Christians are NOT sinners saved by grace, but rather saints who sometimes sin. I remember thinking that was mostly just semantics and the distinction wasn’t much. But I came to see the difference. Strip away the adjectives that cloud the issue, and it becomes clear. Not sinners, but saints. It’s a fundamental shift in self-identification. A paradigm shift. The old man has passed away, behold all things are made new.

Grace, baby!
