Surge Summary: Yes, Americans need to value and cherish their nation – but they also must never forget that other countries matter as well. Residents of the United States should remain mindful of these other lands and peoples because they are terrifically important to the Creator Who gave His Son for them.
I write these words from India, here now for the 28th time since 1993. In fact, this would have been my 30th visit to this amazing country if not for COVID.
Being here among the Indian people, I am reminded once again of God’s heart for the nations of the world. He cares deeply for the people He has created. He has put something unique into each of them.
There is a fascinating passage towards the end of the book of Revelation, which is the last book of the Bible.
The Glory of the Nations
Speaking of the New Jerusalem, where heaven will literally come down to earth and God will dwell in the midst of His people forever, the apostle John writes:
And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb. By its light will the nations walk, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it, and its gates will never be shut by day—and there will be no night there. They will bring into it the glory and the honor of the nations. But nothing unclean will ever enter it, nor anyone who does what is detestable or false, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s book of life. (Revelation 21:22–27)
So, in the midst of this absolutely glorious, transcendent vision, one in which God the Father and Jesus the Son will radiate their presence, we are also told that “the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it … They will bring into it the glory and the honor of the nations.” … Keep Reading the Rest @: God’s Heart for the Nations
