Most Christians would have no problem admitting that they still struggle with sin. But there’s a huge difference between a Christian who is aware of their sin and a Christian who tends to see themselves as a sinner. As a Christian, your tendency to sin should not determine your identity. From God’s perspective, you are a saint or set-apart one. You have been consecrated by God and have been imputed the righteousness of Christ. Because of that, God considers you to be holy. Which is why Paul referred to the believers as saints in the various congregations to which he wrote. And he was constantly reminding them of their new identity as sons and daughters of God. He wanted them to live distinctively different lives based on their identity as saints, not as sinners. While there is value in remembering the past from which we were saved, we are not to dwell on it or to identify ourselves with it. Instead, we are to remember what Paul said, “The old has gone, the new is here!”
