For the Great Multitude

“I saw a great multitude from every nation and all tribes and peoples and languages standing before the throne.” Revelation 7:9
That is the great vision the Lord Jesus gave the Apostle John as recorded in Revelation—a throng of people from every corner of the globe, every people group, every language group gathered before the throne of God offering praise to Our Lord Jesus Christ. It is a vision that moves us to praise God for His great love and for the greatness of our salvation. But it is a vision that ought to motivate us to share the love of Christ all the more. The reality is that there are still so many people groups either completely without Christ or virtually unreached. There are too many people groups that don’t have the Bible in their own language. And sadly, there are some corners of the globe we once considered reached that are now almost completely without gospel witness—again. The vision is majestic, but the task is unfinished.
Do you long to see a people from every tribe, tongue, and nation before the throne of the Lamb of God? Then you and I, in this generation, must make that mission our priority. Some of us on occasion have the opportunity to go—like our two Ecuador teams. But every year we have the opportunity to give. The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering supports missionaries who take the gospel to unreached places all across the globe. One hundred percent of the money you give to Lottie Moon goes to International Mission Board missionaries all over the world. Our church goal is $2500.00. It may not seem like much, but everything you give makes ministry possible somewhere you’ll never go. Make it the most important gift you give this Christmas.

In the love of Jesus,

Pastor Michael Wren
