LIGHT FOR THE NATIONS PRODUCES PRAISE
It is a thrill to the soul to look at passages in the Old Testament which look forward to what “nations – ethnos” (people groups) will do when the light of Christ shines into their darkness. Spiritual “darkness [has] covered the earth, and thick darkness the peoples” (Isaiah 60:2). But the power of God’s light in Christ is changing all that. “Nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising” (60:3). This promise has, is and will happen! Are you involved in shining that light to the nations? (Matthew 5:14-16).
Notice other promises that reflect the power of the gospel as it spreads across the face of this earth. “I will cause your name to be remembered in all generations; therefore, nations will praise you forever and ever” (Psalm 45:17). “All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name” (86:9). As we have noted many times from Revelation 5:9-10, God will receive worship from every tribe, tongue and nation because the name of Jesus has been proclaimed; “the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek” (Romans 1:16).
Since this is true, why should we not get involved in accomplishing the very thing that will bring greater glory and praise to God. It costs you nothing to be a witness right where you are. If God should send you, as Jesus did the disciples, He will make a way for His promise to be fulfilled in and through you.
