An Inheritance of Nations

"Our call to war, to love the captive soul,
But to rage against the captor;
And with the sword that makes the wounded whole
We will fight with faith and valor.
When faced with trials on ev'ry side,
We know the outcome is secure,
And Christ will have the prize for which He died—
An inheritance of nations." 
from O Church Arise by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

Jesus died for people from every tribe, tongue and nation. He has people from every corner of the Earth. But many of them have not yet heard the Good News that Christ has died for their sins so that they can be reconciled to God and bring Him glory forever.

This is why we meet to pray. This is why people must go. This is why we give our resources. Missions is part of the whole church, not just for some. Our parts may look different, but God has called all of His people to be part of His call to the lost in all nations. 

Pray for God's Word to go forward. Pray for hearts to be soft and receptive. Pray for the Holy Spirit to prepare His people to accept the grace He alone gives. Pray for Christ's inheritance of nations.
