In that day you will say: “Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.
It is wrong to think God's love for the nations began only with Jesus and the Great Commission.
Remember Jonah's preaching to save Israel's great enemy, Nineveh? Remember the precious story of Ruth, a foreigner grafted into the lineage of King David and ultimately Jesus the Messiah?
God loves all people and wants them to come to share in his grace. As Christians, we are his salt and light. We are here to touch all the people of the world and beckon them to come back to the one Father who truly loves them.
Holy God, stir in my heart a greater passion to share your love with the world. Please bless the efforts of all those who share the Gospel of Jesus in a culture other than their own. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
