The Saints in Glory
Psalm 149:5
Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud on their beds.

I. THEIR NAME. "Saints."

1. Because they are separated. Not the world, or the god of this world, but the God who made and redeemed them, is their Master and Lord; God's service is their service; God's will is their law; God's Word is their rule.

2. Because they are sanctified. By the belief of the truth as it is in Jesus their eyes are turned away from viewing vanities, and are turned towards holy objects of contemplation.

II. THEIR HONOUR. "In glory."

1. The state of glory. Heaven — eternal rest, but not inaction.

2. The place of glory. The holy city is all glorious, "having the glory of God," within, above, and around. Its sky is ever cloudless, its light is ever clear, its sun never sets, and its day never ends.

3. The society of glory.

4. An eternity of glory.


1. Wholly joyful.

2. All joyful.

3. Ever joyful.

(G. Robson.)
