Who are the saints? Are they a select group of Christians who lived especially godly lives – like nuns or monks in a monastery? No. The word saint comes from the Greek word “hagios” which means “consecrated to God, sacred or holy ones, those who are set apart”; in other words… all believers who are in Christ Jesus. Saints are not just a few special people: Saints are Christians, the body of Christ, the church, us. If you are trusting in Jesus then you are a saint – not like Simon Templar (the character played by Roger Moore in the 60’s and Val Kilmer in the 90’s), but a saint like St Paul, or St Timothy, or St Mary.
