As soon as you hear the word "saint," I bet you begin to imagine very holy people. Perhaps they are so holy that their feet never touch the ground, right? Maybe a saint is a very religious person who has separated themselves completely from the world around them. What if the bible had something totally different in mind when it calls people saints? What if a saint is just a person who lives out everyday life, you know, real relationships, finances, jobs, emotions - the normal things of life in extraordinary ways? Curious? Come and join us as we discover what it takes to be an Everyday Saint. You may be surprised! Everyday Saints: April 12th - July 5th
Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds. They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart. They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity. But that is not the way you learned Christ!— assuming that you have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus, to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.
For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
