for the nations

Imagine with me for a moment what it will be like around the throne of Christ, worshiping with believers from every nation, every tribe, and every tongue. I don’t know about you, but I look forward to that day. And I hope you do as well.

Christ has called every person on the planet who know Him and have a relationship with Him to make His name known. Every person. From the oldest to the youngest. Our job is to declare His glory among the nations. We do so because He is infinitely worthy of worship. We do so not out of obligation but out of inexpressible joy for what Christ has accomplished. We do so because He is worth it all.

For the nations, we should go.

For the nations, we should live.

For the nations, we should die.

Christ has not called us to a life of comfort an ease. The American dream has diluted the reality of what Christ has called each of His follower to do. He has called us to put others first, to live in Him, and if need be, to die for His glory. He has called us to a life of joy which is found in Him and Him alone. He has called us to be a people who bring the light into the darkness. He has called us to be a people who are willing to do whatever it takes, to risk it all, to spread the fame of Jesus from the highest mountain peaks to the deepest valleys.

Will you choose to do whatever it takes for the glory of Christ. Will you choose to lay your family, your life, your career on the table and boldly say, “Lord, it is all Yours. Do with me/us as You please. Send is wherever You desire us to go for the fame of Your Great Name”?

May we be a people who are willing to do so. May we be found faithful to the call of Christ. And may we hasten His return.
