Had a great time at All Nations Church yesterday and a large part of that was due to the great people Zoe and sat by, friends from Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Wales, England…I love the fun and diversity of it all. Then thinking about the week ahead it struck me again that what we are in Pontypridd is one vital aspect of all nations coming to worship the Lord. All Nations. All Nations! That’s incredible and we’re already seeing it among ourselves…
On a Sunday night we regularly see 30+ people from all over the world. We don’t yet see ALL nations (but we will!) but we do see many: England, Wales, Scotland, Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, China, Poland, France, Cameroon…extend that open to our family in Cardiff and it moves further: Northern Ireland, Iran, America, Canada, Kuwait, Malaysia, India, Uganda, Zambia, Slovakia, Ecuador….and I’m only stopping there because I can’t remember them all!
Take a minute to think about it. When we meet we aren’t just expressing something in Pontypridd but we are announcing that God’s Kingdom HAS come to all the world! Men and women shall go out from us and go to lands and shores that some of us may never set foot on….but we are still a part of it because of the seed we can sow into their lives! That opens up everything!
We need to have a bigger vision, a world vision! Take a look for yourself. Below are some verses that, if you have a spare 15 minutes, look some of them up and thank God that All nations will hear of his fame!
Psalm 72: 17-f
Psalm 86: 9-10
1 Tim 2:1-6
Have a great day!
