Precious Saints

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- July 14, 2011

“Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.” Psalm 116:15, KJV

Precious saints are special, because they are precious in the sight of the Lord. More specifically, He sees the death of saints as precious in His sight. Their faithful living leaves a residue of righteousness in the wake of their relationships. Their countenance reflects Christ as they speak His truth and exhibit His grace. Precious memories remain for those who are precious to Jesus. They leave behind a legacy of having loved well.

Precious saints provide a picture of Jesus. They allow us to look into the life of our Lord, by their godly example. Their sensitive spirit rejoices when we rejoice and weeps when we weep. They do not cast stones of judgment; rather they are a rock of reassurance and encouragement. They are on the look out for ways to serve and draw attention to their Savior Jesus, not themselves. The inner beauty of their character is beautiful to behold. Precious saints finish well, so their death is a celebration of their faithfulness to God.

“Rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God” (1 Peter 3:4 NKJV).

Have you lost a precious soul, who is near and dear to your heart? Has your husband, wife or lifetime friend (like a brother or sister) gone to be with the Lord? What is precious has be taken and given their glorified body, while you remain in a temporary tent that mourns a great loss. Grieve well—as God has promoted His precious one.

A saint who dies is precious, because they have believed and see Jesus as the most Precious One. Now that they are in the presence of Jesus in heaven—you can be intentional to enter into the presence of Jesus on earth. Though their body no longer lives, be inspired their precious spirit lives on to prod you to love God and to love people. Use this defining moment of death to step up to another level of faith, love and hope that the Lord desires. The death of your precious saint compels you to finish being precious to God.

“Simon Peter, a bondservant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue” (2 Peter 1:1-3, NKJV).

How can I finish well, so my life is more precious to the Lord at my homecoming into heaven?

  1. I’m the co-founder of JustCBD label (justcbdstore.com) and I am currently looking to expand my wholesale side of business. It would be great if anybody at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance ! I thought that the best way to do this would be to talk to vape companies and cbd retailers. I was really hoping if anyone could suggest a reputable web-site where I can buy CBD Shops Business Lists I am currently reviewing creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the best solution and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
