Romans 1:07 - Called as Saints Bookmark

Romans 1:7

"to all who are beloved of God in Rome, called as saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ." (NASB)

"To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ." (KJV)

"am writing to all of you in Rome who are loved by God and are called to be His own holy people. May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace." (NLT)

G2822
kle?tos

G40
hagios
Thayer Definition:
1) most holy thing, a saint
Part of Speech: adjective
A Related Word by Thayer’s/Strong’s Number: from hagos (an awful thing) [compare G53, G2282]

Strong Definition:
From hagos (an awful thing) compare G53, [H2282]; sacred (physically pure, morally blameless or religious, ceremonially consecrated): - (most) holy (one, thing), saint.

Key repeated phrases:

Verse 1: called as an apostle; called to be an apostle; chosen by God to be an apostle

Verse 6: called of Jesus Christ; called to belong to Jesus Christ

Verse 7: called as saints; called to be saints; called to be His own holy people

The same way Paul is a "called apostle," and we are "called of Christ," we are also "called as saints." Because I belong to Christ, I am a most holy thing. A mind boggling statement certainly not reflective of the face I shave every morning.

Heavenly Father, let the light of your holiness shine upon my heart in that place where the visage is not marred because of your providential preservation that I may in some small way reflect the light of your Son, Jesus, to someone today! Thank you for this magnificent salvation purchased with the blood of the Messiah.
