2 Corinthians 5:17
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
The believers who are saved are become in Christ – the saints.
I hear many ppl telling me that they are sinners and they are correct. They are not saved and therefore they are sinners.Once saved the sinner is the old self he is gone, the new is come and that is the saint.The saint is the one who fellowships the Spirit and daily renews his mind and confesses his sins to God for pardon and therefore that is why he is a saint and no longer the sinner that he once was when he had zilch relationship with the Almighty through His Son.
