After posting the blog yesterday, I was thinking again of what heaven will be like. From the inception of the Church, believers who understood the heart of God and the command of Christ, risking everything for the sake of spreading the gospel. The progress during the Early Church was stunning. Perhaps again, the Church is waking up to its unfinished task; reaching the unreached.
As John was finishing his work in confinement on an island, Jesus give him a look into that day yet to come. “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” (Revelation 7:9).
I can’t imagine seeing this and then realizing that it has not happened yet, and the work yet to be done. As our team travels to the four corners of the earth training and preparing believers to carry the gospel to “the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8), we keep before us and them the final goal.
If we lose sight of the finish line, we will slow down or even stop running the race. Many complain that they can’t physically “GO” as others have, and are going. That is okay. There is something you can do. Can you pray? Then pray. Can you disciple someone else to “GO”? Then be busy with being an effective disciple-maker. Can you help someone “GO” in your place? Then help them. There is something each of us can do, only if we have seen the final gathering of “every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages.” WHAT A SIGHT!
