Resurrection – Part 6. There are two types of people in this world: “Saints, and Aints”. In Philippians 3:7-14, the apostle Paul is addressing the Saints when discussing the status of “perfect”. We know that no one is perfect for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). Yet “Saints” are perfected by Christ in salvation and are complete in Him (Colossians 2:10). The pursuit of “being perfect” is the race of Saints in the pursuit of the calling of God. Life in the Christian realm is a race for inheritance. The reward for the winning the race are crowns. To run in the Christian race, you must do so according to the rules in order to be approved unto God. Now the first race is against sin to defeat death and join the “Saints” team. As Hebrews 11:6 says “…for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” The second race excludes all of the “Aints”, and is the race where you press towards the mark for the high calling of God in Christ Jesus (Phil. 3:14). This is where Paul talks about attaining perfection. Positionally, we’re complete (perfect) in Christ as a “Saint”. This Saints race is being run to be approved unto God and receive the rewards of running faithfully. One of these rewards is the out-resurrection. The lesson on Mar 2, 2003 is part 6 of a series on resurrection
