“So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household,” Ephesians 2:19 NIV
There are no aliens or strangers in the Body of Christ we are all fellow citizens with the SAINTS. Fellow citizens meaning all the SAINTS of GOD, should have the same spiritual interest.
A Christian SAINT is one who is set apart for God’s special purposes. A Christian SAINT is also a dedicated follower of JESUS CHRIST. In other words, Christian SAINTS are the Body of Christ, they are the physical church with a spiritual form. All “Christians” are considered Saints, and all Christians are Saints. Scripture tells us in 1 Corinthians 1:2, “To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy…” Did you know in the original Greek language, sanctified and holy are translated as SAINTS?
What's the Message: CHRISTIANS ARE SAINTS that are CALLED to be Saints in Action. Christian Saints are CALLED to serve, talk, and walk like JESUS. We are not to be revered, prayed to, or worshiped. Some so-called religions think saints are equivalent to GOD. That concept is dangerous thinking and practicing theology.
In the Christian Bible, Christian Saints are called to revere, worship, and pray to God only.
Dear Heavenly FATHER,
What a Blessing to be a called, and chosen Christian Saint. May we serve, talk, and walk to the drum beat of the most high calling -Amen, in JESUS' name.
O. M. Nugget:
“TRUE SAINTS ARE SPIRITUAL REFLECTORS OF JESUS CHRIST.”

“The Savior is the perfect example of praying for others with real intent. In His great Intercessory Prayer uttered on the night before His Crucifixion, Jesus prayed for His Apostles and all of the Saints.” -David A. Bednar
