It shall be told of the Lord to the coming generation

All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations shall worship before you. For kingship belongs to the Lord, and he rules over the nations. All the prosperous of the earth eat and worship; before him shall bow all who go down to the dust, even the one who could not keep himself alive. Posterity shall serve him; it shall be told of the Lord to the coming generation; they shall come and proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn, that he has done it. Psalms 22:27-31

A thousand years before the incarnation David is writing that ALL nations shall remember and turn to the Lord. What are the nations to remember? Was it David’s suffering? No, it was Jesus’ sacrifice that the nations would remember. It is Jesus’ work on the cross that brings the nations together. Almost two thousand years after the fact we are still waiting for the nations to come to Christ.

Today it is our job to proclaim His righteousness to the people. People that were not born when Jesus paid the price for everyone’s sins. One does not need to travel to distant land to proclaim Jesus. We can do it right here in Houston. It can be done one on one or to a group. If we will allow God to work through us it is amazing what our reach can be.

In the few short months since I started posting my writings to a blog I have received comments for New Zeeland and Finland. I have never visited either country yet His word has been spread. But you don’t need to start a blog to spread His word. If you disciple one person they can disciple another and from there it spreads. You may talk to an unbeliever or help a new believer grow in their faith. Each time God’s kingdom is increased.

Finally when Jesus comes back every nation will see the truth. Some to everlasting glory others to everlasting shame. Shame that they did not see what was there for the taking. They did not believe what was there before them.

Jesus has done it. He has paid the price for each person to be reconciled with God. For each person to come to Him and have their sins forgive. David saw this before it happened and he believed. We have the benefit of hindsight for our belief. Yet even in hindsight some refuse to believe.

Pray for them that they can overcome their unbelief and accept what is freely given.

About dwwork

The name of this blog is taken from 1 Peter 3:13 - “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience. This verse became special to me over ten years ago when I was asked to teach an adult Sunday school class on Christian apologetics. This interest grew over the years to the point that I took some graduate level classes in apologetics. I think the best way to be prepared to give and answer to everyone who asks is to know scripture. It is my hope that through these short devotionals the reader will become more familiar with each verse. I have tried when possible to make them personal hoping in some small way to show that God’s word written over two thousand years ago is still relevant today. In the writing of these short devotionals I have been able to better understand how God’s word impacts my life. It is my hope that you too will come closer to our Lord Jesus and develop a closer relationship with Him. Finally, if the reader finds anything in conflict with scripture please let me know. God’s word is the final authority always overrules anything I might write. David
