All Saints Day

I ran across this thought that seems fitting for this special day: “A world without saints forgets how to pray.” We don’t pray to the saints or through the saints and we don’t pray for the saints (they’re already in heaven and don’t need our prayers–we’re the ones who need both to pray and the prayers of others), but we let the memory of their faith inspire us to pray and serve the Lord today.
I found this brief meditation by A. W. Pink on "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints” (Psalm 116:15). Here are three sermons that will help you focus on the promises of God that go beyond death:
At Home With the Lord: What is the Christian View of Death?
Acorns to Oak Trees: How are the Dead Raised?
Inside the Pearly Gates: What Will We Do in Heaven?
