The Excellent Ones

Well, I probably do not have enough time to summarize the entire road trip from last week on the blog like I promised before. We passed through seven states, stopped in five cities, visited three university campuses and one gigantic cave, and accumulated over 2,000 miles in the car. You can read more about the trip itself on a post in Chris' blog. I just want to emphasize one aspect of the trip: visiting saints in other localities. This was undoubtedly the highlight of the trip for all five of us. One of my favorite verses is Psalm 16:3 - "As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight." In the Bible, saint means sanctified one. All the believers who have ever lived on the earth are saints! We had the privilege of visiting some of these sanctified ones in Cincinnati, Fairborn (Ohio), Ann Arbor (Michigan), and Chicago. These saints poured out their love and care upon us by providing us food and lodging, taking us on tours, and feeding us the Word of God. I can truly say after the trip that they love us and we love them. The saints in the Midwest, just like the saints everywhere, truly are the excellent ones.

Amen, praise the Lord for the saints! I love that verse in the Psalms, the saints in the land are the excellent ones - all my delight is in them! What a privilege to go and blend!
