“Paul an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God. To the saints who are in
Ephesus and are
faithful in Christ Jesus.”
Paul opens up his letter to the Church at Ephesians calling all those in the church saints. This is a statement of our position in the New Covenant. Every believer has been united to Christ in their spirit and is therefore declared holy; There is no hierarchy of saints in the
no superstars , If you are in Him, you are Holy. You don’t have to try and be
holy you don’t have to get holy. You are holy. Kingdom of God
Holiness has got nothing to do with sinning or not sinning. It has nothing to do with our works or performance, we cannot make ourselves holy. There is only one person who is the cause of our holiness and His name is Jesus Christ.
Hebrews - "We have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all". You have been made holy once and for all!
Religion has limited holiness to the absence of sin. This definition of holiness robs God of his awesome glory. Holiness is who God is. It is the essence of God. It is the pure glory of the fullness of his infinite goodness, mercy and love.
God is Holy and if you are in Him and united into him then you are holy and you are a saint. You are seated in heavenly places in Christ, You have been blessed with every spiritual blessing.
To live holy is to live from your eternal, heavenly position. To live unholy is to live from your current earthly condition. It has got nothing to do with sinning. It has everything to do with position. It has everything to do with where you are living from.
Therefore we enjoy all the blessings of God as we live from our Spirit and let it permeate through our entire being.
