The word 'saints' imports people who are set apart  and consecrated to the service and glory of God.  They were fore-ordained from all eternity in the  counsels of heaven to this blessed state. As this  call of God is by the Spirit of holiness, so it is unto  a life of holiness.

They are no more of the world!

They reject its hollow and selfish principles!

They scorn its debasing maxims!

They turn from its ungodly ways!

They despise its vain pursuits!

They rise high above its mis-called pleasures!

Oh! then, let us no more walk with downcast eyes fixed on the mire of this miserable world! Let us gaze on the pure and bright scenes to which we are hastening! May the paltry trifles of this world be far beneath our feet!

[Henry Law]

1 Samuel 2:9 ... He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.

Psalm 37:28 ... For the Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.

Proverbs 2:8 ... He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.

Ephesians 1:18 ... The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
