Revelation 7:9, “After this, I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.”
“Heaven will be the biggest celebration we’ve ever seen!”
In the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, there were 92 nations that participated, representing people from all over the world. The Olympics are known for bringing countries together for a time of competition but also for a time of celebrating our world’s diversity.
Have you ever thought about how diverse Heaven will be? Can you picture the kind of celebration that is happening there right now? Our verse today tells us that a kaleidoscopic range of people will be there including those from every nation, tribe, people, and language! What an insanely, amazing time this will be!
Who is responsible to tell people about Jesus so they can join us in this celebration one day in Heaven? YOU!
Do you have friends and family who need to know about Jesus? Are there people in your neighborhood, your workplace, or your school who have yet to hear of his love?
Even if you are still learning about God yourself, you can invite others to join you on your journey. You never know what you’ll discover together!
Write a list of your immediate friends and family. Do all of them know Jesus in a real and personal way? If not, pray that God would give you the boldness to share your story or invite them to Fellowship Church. We’ll roll out the red carpet for them!
Dear God, thank You for the hope of Heaven. Help me to tell more people about you so they can experience the eternal celebration with you. Thank you for the people who cared enough to share with me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
