"In every believer there is darkness and light, and yet he is not to be named a sinner because there is sin in him, but he is to be named a saint because he possesses some degree of holiness. This will be a most comforting thought to those who are mourning their infirmities, and who ask, “Can I be a child of God while there is so much darkness in me?” Yes; for you [are] spoken of in the word of God as if you were even now perfectly holy as you will be soon.”

Charles Spurgeon, You Are Not to be Named a Sinner
