Revelation 5:9 (NIV®)
“With your blood you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.”
The Kingdom of God is not composed of people from any single nationality or race. Scripture says that one day before the throne of God, people from every nation, race, tribe, and language will gather to declare that Jesus Christ is Lord. What an incredible experience that will be! We hear lots of dialogue about the right of all the people of the world to experience freedom and liberty and opportunity and equality. Those are worthy goals, but the reality is that they emerge from a world view that is guided by honoring God. You and I, as ambassadors for His Kingdom, have the opportunity and privilege of praying for the nations of the world, that Jesus Christ would be revealed and lifted up among the people, for He alone is the source of good things.
THINK ABOUT IT
What is your response when you hear news reports of the challenges faced by the people of the world? Do you think that’s just the way it is in that country? Or do you ask your Heavenly Father to reveal Jesus Christ to the people of that nation?
Heavenly Father, I bow my knee before Your majesty and splendor. One day all people will bow before Your throne and proclaim Your Son, Jesus, as Lord. Give me a heart to intercede for the Church throughout the earth. Please deliver me from anything that would waste the time You have given me here on earth. Grant me the strength and courage to complete the course You have chosen for me. May my life honor You alone. In Jesus’ name, amen.
