A Sinner Saved by Grace?
Am I a sinner saved by grace, as many Christians claim? It’s true, I once was a sinner, which means I was spiritually dead, but I was saved by God’s grace, which means now I’m spiritually alive (Col. 2:13). I can’t be both spiritually dead and spiritually alive at the same time, because I’ve crossed over from death to life (John 5:24). The Bible calls me holy (Heb. 3:1; 10:10), so I’m no longer a sinner.
I still sin, but that doesn’t make me a sinner, any more than doing good works makes a sinner become a child of God. Rather, I confess my sin, accept his forgiveness and continue working with Holy Spirit to become increasingly like Jesus (2 Cor. 3:18).
No, I’m not a sinner saved by grace. I once was a sinner, but now I’m saved, a child of God.
