Alle kan bli en helgen. ALLE.

"God made saints out of far worse people than you." Mark Hart

For å ta to av mine helter: Paulus drepte mennesker bare fordi de var kristne, før han selv ble en kristen. Allerede som tenåring hadde Hellig Olav drept atskillige mennesker i vikingtokt, og hans eneste sønn ble født utenfor ekteskap.


Sånn kunne jeg fortsette. Men det er ikke poenget her. Poenget er at uansett hvem du er, uansett hva du har gjort, uansett hvilken fortid du har, kan du likevel bli en helgen. Det vil si: Du kan bli den personen Gud skapte deg til å være. Hel. Helbredet. Helliggjort.


Til oppmuntring på veien: Her er ti gode sitater.


"God made saints out of far worse people than you." 
Mark Hart

"Every saint a past
and every sinner has a future."

"The struggle is the sign of holiness.
A saint is a sinner that keeps trying."


"We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures.
We are the sum of the Father's love for us."


"Let no one mourn that he has fallen again and again, for forgiveness has risen from the grave."


"To be saints is not a privilege for the few, but a vocation for everyone."
"Do not be afraid to become the saints of the new millennium!"


"Become who you are."


"The Lord delights in every little step you take."


"May we know You more clearly, love You more dearly, and follow You more nearly, day by day."


"Every saint has a past
and every sinner has a future."
Oscar Wilde


"Let no one mourn that he has fallen again and again, for forgiveness has risen from the grave."

  • Ettertanke | Slik blir du en helgen "Alle helgener vitner om denne ene tingen: At ALT er nåde. Helgenenes fortrinn består ikke i moralsk lyteløshet eller syndfrihet, men i det at de lar nåden seire i livet sitt. "
