Saint Who? Saint You!

Saint Who Saint You

We recently celebrated All Saints Day. You might have recalled some favorite saints that you look up to. It is easy to place these virtuous men and women on a pedestal and think you could never achieve sanctity. Some people say, “I’m no saint” like it is an unreachable goal. The fact is that we are all called to be saints.

Saints are not freaks or the exceptions. They are the standard operating model for all human beings. We are ALL created in the image and likeness of God. We are ALL destined for greatness. Becoming a saint is to become fully who God intended you to be. As it says in Ephesians 1:4, “He chose us in Him, before the foundation of the world, to be holy and without blemish before him.”

A lot of people think “I could never become a saint because I could never do all those amazing things that the saints did” and they sell themselves short, or more accurately, they sell God short. You do not need to do a humongous number of holy things to become a saint. You only need to do one thing…. say YES to God and let Him work in you. This means taking the hands off the steering wheel of your life and letting God drive. Kind of scary I know, for God is “invisible” and we don’t know where He will navigate us. However, His plan for us is way better that what we have mapped out. For He makes crooked ways straight. (see Isaiah 42:16)

So, trust in God and know that you are a saint in the making. Yes, you…Saint You!

For with God, all things are possible.
