Revelation 7:9 – After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne and to the Lamb!”
John is describing that the redeemed will be an innumerable amount from all nations, tribes and tongues. The redeemed, will be wearing white robes washed by the blood of the Lamb and be loudly praising God before His throne for their salvation through Jesus.
The gospel of Jesus Christ is global as this is God’s redemptive plan from the beginning. By the grace of God, I have been saved by the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus to pay for my sin debt in full when I place my faith and trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. Let me rejoice in that and shout loudly with all the saints! So, I am saved by grace through faith not just to enjoy His grace. James tells us faith without works is dead. God’s calling is for His glory to be declared among the nations. We are living in a time where there are still billions of people worldwide that have never heard the gospel of Jesus Christ. Many of these people groups live in what is referred to as the 10- 40 (Longitude – Latitude) window. My role needs to let my story be God’s glory by welcoming different people groups, praying, equipping, sending and even going to help the spread of the gospel here and amongst the nations.
Thank you for your love and grace you have given me in salvation through Jesus. Let the power of the Spirit lead me to share your glory here and amongst all people groups.
