Saints


letter_writing

Today we are continuing to see more about what the Bible compares a Saint to or with:

Exodus 19:5  Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

Psalm 135:4  For the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.     IN THESE VERSES SAINTS ARE COMPARED TO TREASURE!

Malachi 3:17  And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. GOD CALLS HIS CHILDREN JEWELS!

Job 23:10 But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.  WHEN GOD REFINES AND MOLDS US WE ARE COMPARED TO PURE GOLD, PRECIOUS IN HIS SIGHT!

2 Timothy 2:20  But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. SAINTS ARE REFERRED TO AS VESSELS OF GOLD AND SILVER!

Little Vessels

We are little vessels,

Created by God’s hand,

Put here a little while,

To walk in this land.

We are little vessels,

Broken and marred by sin,

God knows our every weakness,

He wants to mold us from within.

We are little vessels,

Who need saved from sin,

And by submitting to God our potter,

Salvation will begin.

We are little vessels,

Saved from sin and shame,

Jesus gives us victory,

Because He lives again.

We are little vessels,

Being molded by His spirit,

Because of His love and grace,

And not by our merit.

We are little vessels,

Being shaped, As He would have us be,

Perfect in His sight,

When the face of Jesus we see.

  1. this truly expresses a great truth here and I love reading and hearing about Gods vessels – Saints of Silver and Gold- yes at times we all need to be reminded about how God sees us, thank you so much for this pretty verse
