God has a heart for all peoples. He gives us a glimpse of our future and it is filled with worship from every tongue, people, and nation!
We get a small foretaste of this in the book of Revelation:
[box]And they sang a new song, saying:
Worthy are You to take the book and to break its seals; for You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. “You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth. (Rev. 5:9–10)[/box]
I love this! Every tongue, people, and nation will one day gather to lift up praise to the God who purchased us. I can’t wait to experience the diversity and unity that this picture presents.
God’s heart is for the nations and his eternal gospel is the message He wants spread across this globe.
I love watching how He is doing that right now in the Dominican Republic and across Latin America! I hope you’ll check out Laura’s story below and hear how God stepped into her life and the dramatic events that followed.
After Laura came to Christ, God used her to lead a large group of women from her church to attend True Woman ’08 in Chicago. From those initial encounters with Revive Our Hearts, God birthed the ministry of Aviva Nuestros Corazones, the Spanish version of Revive Our Hearts. In May, 2012, the ministry to Spanish speaking women was launched and today Latinas can now hear Aviva Nuestros Corazones five days a week in eighteen countries (the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Spain, and fourteen Latin American countries).
Woman can also stream, download, and read messages online at AvivaNuetrosCorazones.com.
Do you know someone who could benefit from this ministry? I hope you’ll send today’s blog post out and share the word with our Spanish speaking friends. Please join me in praying for God to continue spreading His message across the globe. It is amazing to watch as He has taken what started as a dream in one woman’s heart and has grown it into a daily ministry.
This week you’ll have the opportunity to pray for another important development in this ministry effort:
The first international True Woman Conference for women in Latin America begins today!
February 26–28, women will gather for the first ever international True Woman event. Live stream will be available (with both English and Spanish feeds). Check out the website for more information on that.
Will you pray for the women who will be attending and those who are doing the hard work of preparing for this conference? Will you lift up prayers for Nancy DeMoss, Mary Kassian, and Dannah Gresh, as they will be speaking? Also, pray for those of us on the support team with Revive Our Hearts, ask God to use us to minister to women there in whatever way He chooses.
[box]And I saw another angel flying in midheaven, having an eternal gospel to preach to those who live on the earth, and to every nation and tribe and tongue and people . . .” (Rev. 14:6)[/box]
May the eternal gospel be seen and heard and may Christ be exalted as the Revive Our Hearts team seeks to spread His glory in the Dominican Republic this week!
