BIBLE DEFINITION! “SAINTS”

7537120

SAINTS: People who have been separated from the world and consecrated to the worship and service of God. Followers of the Lord are referred to by this phrase throughout the Bible, although

its meaning is developed more fully in  the New Testament. Consecration (setting apart) and purity are the basic meanings of the term. Believers are called “saints” (Rom 1:7) and  “saints in Christ Jesus” (Phil 1:1) because they  belong to the One who provided their sanctification.
