How To Become A Saint

https://youtu.be/-vYL0W6OC9M

 

(Hebrews 10:24) “And let us continue to consider how to motivate one another to love and good deeds,”

(Jeremiah 18:4) “And the vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to do.”

(2 Corinthians 1:5) “For as the Messiah’s sufferings overflow into us, so also our comfort overflows through the Messiah. If we suffer, it is for your comfort and salvation. If we are comforted, it is for your comfort when you patiently endure the same sufferings that we are suffering.”

 

 

 

According to the world and most religions, there are a few basic steps before one can be considered a saint. You have to serve a deity, show a life of heroic virtue, perform verified miracles and probably wait till after death to be recognized. Gurus are also considered saints as they normally have words of wisdom, live an exemplary life of sacrifice and non-violence and lead people to inner peace through meditation and self-denial.

It seems like a lot of work to accomplish something that God does instantaneously the moment you accept Jesus into your heart. That’s right, God calls us saints, and equips us with goodness, holiness, and sacrificial love the moment we decide to serve Him by accepting Jesus as our Lord and savior.

Man is nothing before God, as God is the one that works through us. This way, God will be worshipped as creator and given all the glory for all the miracles and good works saints and gurus take for themselves. Jesus will not share His glory with any human being.

God starts to melt us down, break us and mold us from the inside out, in order to use us to help others do good as well. We are to encourage others to live like saints by suffering with them and for them. This is exactly what Christ did for us when He died on the cross.

He suffered for us, in order for us to be encouraged to suffer for others and help them also become saints that God can use. Remember, God chose to love you and forgive you in order for you to do the same. You were not chosen from the crowd in order to sit in church and selfishly enjoy God’s presence and blessings.

(“During the reign of Oliver Cromwell, the British government ran low on the silver used to make coins. So Cromwell sent his men to a local cathedral to search for some. They reported back to him that the only silver they could find was in the statues of the saints standing in the corners. Cromwell sent back word, ‘Good; let’s melt down the saints and put them back into circulation.’ That’s what we need – men and women who’ve been melted down, filled with God’s Spirit, and put back into circulation. What good is our experience if we keep it in the church, enjoy it in the church, and leave it in the church?” – Bob Gass)

 

 

It’s time to allow yourself to be melted down and be put back into God’s hands for His divine purpose.
