Are you a saint or are you a sinner?

I strive to be a saint most of the time. When it comes to my thoughts though, I afraid that I am much of a sinner as the next person. Are you a saint? Nah, you must be a sinner, too.

Being a saint for me (in a religious point of view) is overrated. I wouldn't want to be declared as saint by other people. I don't adhere to standards of men. But would you believe all Christians are saints in their own special way? If God is in you, and you in Him, there's no need to be tagged as saint, a simple "child of God" is enough for me.

If one is called a saint, it sort of adds a feather in one;s cap. I like to have a feather, too.

It is very difficult to be a saint on your own personal strength and ability alone. We live in a sinful world. We need God's loving hand, grace and provision in order to be saints. Therefore God made a way, Himself, to make people saints by giving His Son Jesus to die for their sins. That's why when we give ourselves entirely to Christ and hold nothing back we become saints in God's sight. That does not mean we cannot commit mistakes any longer. Being a saint does not mean being perfect. But all the qualities of the saint are there: a kind, loving, patient, forgiving, faithful and true heart. Just some of the qualities.

Its impossible to be a saint. I'm a sinner as well, but I do try to do good things...but its just really hard to do all good things all of the time.

Probably difficult but not impossible. Augustine violated the ten commandments but he became a saint.
