“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 in front of the Lamb.”Revelation 7:9a
It’s hard to comprehend this passage from the book of Revelation when we know there are over three billion people in the world who have never heard about the name of Jesus or about the Bible. Still, by God’s grace there will be numerous people represented in heaven. Hallelujah! Therefore, you and I have some work to do in being part of the Great Commission here on earth.

“If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for Him.” (C.T. Studd, 1887)
