I read in the news today that the Catholic Church has begun their process of conferring sainthood on several candidates. According to the report, sainthood is conferred in a 5 step process that normally takes years to complete.
I thought how fortunate we are as believers since we become saints the instant we're born again. There's no waiting time and we don't have to wait until we die for someone to recognize our merit. This is not an honor that's reserved for a select few but it's a gift from our Father given to every one of his children. No one has to scrutinize our lives to see if we're worthy of this honor. In Christ, we're ALL worthy.
We're saints not because of what we've done but because of what Christ has done.
