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.
