Hey, there…..there are so many scriptures in the New Testament that identify ANY person who is called by God to be a believer is a ‘saint’. One example is Ephesians 1:1 (Rotherham’s Emphasised Bible, Concordant Literal New Testament, Young’s Literal Translation, American Standard Version, etc, etc.)and there are numerous others:
Acts 9:13, Acts 26:10, Romans 1:7. 2 Corinthians 1:1, Philippians 1:1, Colossians 1:2, etc.
You don’t have to croak/kick-the-bucket/die and have mortal men decide whether you are/were a ‘saint’ or not……this designation is a FREE gift, by grace and in faith because of the sacrifice of Christ Jesus.
Catch you later.
