“After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.” (Revelation 7:9)
This verse gives us a glimpse of the joy that we will experience in the midst of our King Jesus. It shows us the beauty of the hard works that we have committed to as followers of Christ; the sacrificing, giving, and loving to others will be worth it all.
When we invest our time towards the kingdom of God, we are working with God to paint a beautiful picture that this verse portrays. The hope that we hold on to is that every prayer and effort we put into the kingdom of God will point all to Christ, and in return save multitudes of people in the end time.
Missionaries who risk their lives to reach all tribes and tongues from all over the world can have assurance that none of their work is a waste of time. Because of them, every nation, tribe, and tongue will be able to stand before Jesus in joy.
Every moment we spend for the kingdom of God is precious.
Never take for granted the honor that you have to serve the Lord and partake in His mission to reach the lost. Your work is an eternal investment.
Jesus isn’t preparing heaven for a limited amount of people – He is preparing for a full house, and He plans to use you to make it happen.
You are precious in the eyes of Jesus – He wants you to join him in heaven.
