All the Nations
Revelation 7:9, “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…”
One of the main reasons I love Richardson is because I can walk my block and say “Hi!” to neighbors from all different nations, languages, and peoples. I find that it’s one of the main reasons most Richardson residents love our city.
I often prayer walk around neighborhoods in Richardson and I will often pray this verse, asking that God would allow Mosaic to get a glimpse of this coming reality before heaven. I know we won’t see it in full, that’s a joy reserved for eternity, but I just want a glimpse.
Do we believe God could let us get a glimpse of this? Do we really believe that God could save men and women from all nations represented in Richardson?
→ Are you afraid of getting to know people that are different than you?
→ How and when do you get to do that?
“Father, one day all the nations will stand around the throne proclaiming the glory of Christ! One day our present divisions will be gone forever and we will experience the glorious peace of Jesus together. Would you give us a glimpse of that future reality in this place at this time?”
Adoration: Praise God that He welcomes all.
Confession: Confess where you may harbor prejudice or ignorance.
Thanksgiving: Give thanks that Jesus is the Lord of the nations.
Supplication: Ask the Spirit to start a disciple making movement among the nations in Richardson.
