The Immense Value of a Dying Christian

deathbed_3“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.” Psalm 116:16

Charles Spurgeon comments:

The Lord watches over their dying beds, smooths their pillows, sustains their hearts, and receives their souls. Those who are redeemed with precious blood are so dear to God that even their deaths are precious to him.

The deathbeds of saints are very precious to the church, she often learns much from them; they are very precious to all believers, who delight to treasure up the last words of the departed; but they are most of all precious to the Lord God himself, who views the triumphant deaths of his gracious ones with sacred delight. If we have walked before him in the land of the living, we need not fear to die before him when the hour of our departure is at hand. (Take from The Treasury of David).

Because of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, God holds the life, death, and resurrection of His people as immensely precious. Those who trust in Christ have a God who holds their lives as valuable and their deaths as immensely precious.
