Psalm 86:9

Psalm 86:9

All nations whom You have made
Shall come and worship before You, O Lord,
And shall glorify Your name.
Psalm 86:9

God’s heart has always been for all nations to behold and enjoy His glory. You can hear it in Genesis when the Lord said, “Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him” (18:18), and again in 22:18 where God promised him, “In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.” The Seed of which He spoke is Jesus.

Jesus also has a heart for the nations so He commanded His church to “Go and make disciples of all the nations” (Matthew 28:19). And yet again He said, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15).

In the culmination of time, John testifies in Revelation 7:9, “After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands…”

Behold God’s heart for the nations. Listen carefully to Jesus’ command to go tell them. We know how history ends. Surely we must obey and bring the light of the glory of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world. So let’s GO!
