How beautiful…

Everyone needs to see this. As English speaking Christians we have completely lost the wonder and amazement of being able to read God’s word in our own language. We have copies of it everywhere… Lord, that I might treasure your word as these people do. My husband and I wept as we watched this and listened to the pastor praise God for the word of God in his own language.

Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”

Revelation 5:9-10 And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from EVERY TRIBE AND LANGUAGE AND PEOPLE AND NATION, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, AND THEY SHALL REIGN ON THE EARTH.

Habakkuk 2:14 For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.

Isaiah 9:6-7  6 For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of his government and of peace
there will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
to establish it and to uphold it
with justice and with righteousness
from this time forth and forevermore.
THE ZEAL OF THE LORD OF HOSTS WILL DO THIS.

  1. I loved this. I never thought before about what it would be like to not have the Bible available in my own language. Thanks for sharing this.
    I read further into your blog and listened to the song about Mary. Can you tell me who was singing and if a can get a copy of it? (CD?)

    Thank you,

  2. Each week at one of the services at our church (the contemporary one) the pastor has someone come and read the passage he is preaching on, during Advent, in another language. Right now there are two missionaries staying in church houses; they each read, one in Mandarin Chinese, and the other in Wolof (language spoken in Senegal, Africa). My husband read in Latin at yesterday’s service. We are now out of town, but I am sad to miss this particular aspect of the services. It really is beautiful, even though I don’t understand it, to know that God does, and that His word is for everyone…awesome. I cried when hearing the Chinese. That was the first Sunday in Advent, and it was so wonderful.
