Imitate the Saints of God

We must live like the saints themselves and imitate their works.  When we become like them and live the common life, we can understand what God has revealed to them.  And by being closely knit to them, we can escape the danger of sinners and fire at the Day of Judgment.  We can receive what is stored up in the kingdom of heaven for the saints.  Such treasure, “eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have they entered into the heart of man.”  These things are prepared for those who live a righteous life and who love God and Christ Jesus our Lord.
