This week marks the beginning of turkey season in my area. After months away from matching wits with a big gobbler, I’m excited to hear his familiar sound echo throughout the woods. His voice is unique to all of hunting and yet is so recognizable. It really doesn’t take a great hunter to know when he is in turkey country. He does not have to look for the signs, only listen for the sounds. He will let you know where he is hanging out.
"For he has made him, who knew no sin, to be sin for us, so that we might e made the righteousness of God in him" 2 Corinthians 5:21
When God saves a man, He does more than pardon that sinner of his guilt; He also completely erases the old offenses from the "books," cleans the sinners name and gives him the perfect righteousness of the Savior. For that reason, believers may rightly be called saints, for they stand perfect in Christ.
