Addison BevereSaints, Becoming More Than Christians
The Bible uses the word, Christian, to describe followers of Jesus a grand total of three times. But there’s another identifier that fills the pages of the New Testament–a word we’ve mistakenly reserved for the halo-wearing elite, losing something profound in the process. Saints.
Identity, union, searching scripture through the lens of Jesus, and holiness discovered through community, in this podcast, Addison Bevere brilliantly describes that we are beloved saints.
“Saints are the people who wake up now instead of waiting till the next lifetime.”
“We are saints, together… Holiness is communal.”
“Religion is always the attempts of the lesser to control the greater.”
“We understand the law and the prophets through the lens of the Son, through the beloved Son…when we get that, the Law and the Prophets actually start to make a lot of sense.”
