In today’s study of saintly appearance we are going to look at a few more Bible verses to help us get a better picture of what a saint should look like.
We read in Deut.7:6 “For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth. Deut. 14:2 For you are a holy people to the Lord your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples who are on the face of the earth. Col.3: 12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, long suffering; Saints are to be holy!
Psalm 34:2 My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
1 Peter 5:5
Submit to God, Resist the Devil
5 Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to yourelders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for
“God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble. These two passages of Scripture say that a saint should walk with humility!
Saints should have a hunger for what is right!
Matthew 5:6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.
Saints should be seen as just in their walk! Gen.6:9 This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God. Luke 2:25 And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man was just and devout, waiting for the Consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him.
