We Are Christians

Are you a Christian who calls yourself a sinner? If you are, consider nearly all of the epistles that Paul wrote and how he addressed the churches:


"To all who are in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ." (Rom. 1:7)
"To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all who in every place call on the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:" (1 Cor. 1:2)
"Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, To the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints who are in all Achaia." (2 Cor. 1:1)
"Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, To the saints who are in Ephesus, and faithful in Christ Jesus." (Eph. 1:1)
"Paul and Timothy, bondservants of Jesus Christ, To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, with the bishops and deacons." (Phil. 1:1)
"To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ who are in Colosse: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ." (Col. 1:2)

Paul never addressed them as "sinners". He called them "saints". Just as a married woman no longer calls herself by her maiden name, a Christian should no longer call themselves "sinner", for they have been betrothed to Christ and no longer serve sin.

"For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ." (2 Cor. 11:2)
"Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Rom. 6:11)

It is easy to dwell on who we once were. But we must focus on who we are now. We are Christians who have been redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus Christ. We should call ourselves by His name alone and never be ashamed of it.
