026: All NationsThe One True God made all people. Everyone exists through Him and for Him (1 Corinthians 8:6). Consequently, the God of all desires all people to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:4-5). From the promise of a coming Savior given to Abraham (Genesis 12:1-3) to the commissioning of the church (Matthew 28:19), God's desire has always been to reconcile all nations to himself. "Nations" does not refer to political borders but ethno-linguistical groups.
Jesus Christ is the Lord and God of every ethno-linguistical group in the world. Jesus alone is worthy to be worshiped by every Asian, African, European, Australian, and North and South American in world. Our mission to make disciples of all nations begins with those of our own household and those living in our city, but our mission does not end until all have heard. A glimpse into heaven gives us the hope of a mission accomplished. Revelation 7:9-10 "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!'"
