08.20.2015 Old Testament: Psa 116.15
To read the Bible in a year, read Psalms 116–118 on August 20, In the year of our Lord 2015
By Don Ruhl
The Lord loves His people, why then do we read of the following?
Precious in the sight of the Lord
Is the death of His saints.
Often we read in the Scriptures of the Lord ordering the deaths of the wicked, but prolonging the lives of the righteous. Nevertheless, we all must die, including the saints of the Lord. What happens when a saint dies? He or she goes to be with the Lord. Is that a bad thing? No, it is a good thing, for then the saint is in the presence of the Lord and that is what He wants.
