What is a saint. Do we have to do miracles to be a saint? Do we have to die to be a saint. Is there any Biblical information that might give us a clue? Maybe............ Acts 9:13 (ESV) 13 But Ananias answered, “Lord, I have heard from many about this man, how much evil he has done to your saints at Jerusalem. " Acts 9:32 (ESV) 32 Now as Peter went here and there among them all, he came down also to the saints who lived at Lydda".
