A Sinner Saved by Grace?
Reading time: 1 minute
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’m either spiritually dead or spiritually alive; I can’t be both at the same time. The Bible calls me a holy one (1 Thess. 3:13), so I’m no longer a sinner.
I still sin, but that doesn’t make me a sinner, any more than a sinner becomes a child of God by doing good works. 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.
