All Nations will Praise His Name

The Bible tells us that one day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord. Can you imagine that? Even those who have openly opposed the Christ will confess him as Lord! He is mighty!

But in Revelation we are also given this amazing vision of a multitude "unable to be counted" shouting out praise to God (Rev 7:9-10). We get this idea of the unending praise of heaven, how those who love Jesus can't help but continue to worship Him.  And there will be so many of us... so many you won't be able to put a number on it.

I am in awe of what that will be like - especially after this morning...

...this morning a couple of my youth and I sat down and joined with around 100 000 other people and watched a live Internet stream of the Passion Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. There were 60 000 people present in the Atlanta Dome, but an even greater number watching online. If felt incredible to be sitting in my lounge room in Deception Bay and know that I was part of a group corporately worshiping God all around the world. Technology makes these amazing feats possible... but the feeling it's left me with is a longing for that day when we will just all be there together doing the same thing... and we won't need the fancy light show, because Jesus will be all the Light we need.
