Precious in the sight of God

Precious in the sight of God are all who have hearts filled with love, who have abandoned by faith their earthly desires, who seek by hope the Kingdom of Heaven.
Though they be few in number, they are the living saints of the Most High God and are the very reason for the existence of the many.
It is for their sake Christ died on the cross as a ransom for their souls because they are so precious in the sight of God.
They have become the Elect, chosen to be the Everlasting Bride of Christ, to be His companions and friends forever and ever.
They shall dwell in the House of the Lord and of God's loneliness they shall take away.
In that day the Lord shall be exceedingly happy and full of joy.
