Celebrate Unity in Diversity

I now know a little bit better what heaven will be like.

In Saint John's Revelation, he is a bit repetitive about it, but for good reason. He liked to describe the people in heaven in this way, "...there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language...(Rev. 7:9).

That is why I say that now I know a little bit better what heaven will be like. On Sunday, as one Christian family at Sure Foundation, we worshipped the Lamb. We worshipped him in English, Spanish, Creole, Chinese, and Urdu. There were worshippers there from China, India, Pakistan, the United States, Mexico, Honduras, Nicaragua, Columbia, Peru, Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Trinidad and Tobago, Haiti, and Argentina. Yes, it was a little slice of heaven.

Praise be to God for unifying us in Christ and to his Holy Spirit for giving us gifts of diversity.
