I love the Newsboys back in the day and when they did their Every Tribe, Tongue and Nation world tour it was awesome.
In the Arab Gulf, you would be amazed at the cultural diversity of the Christian workers.
As God builds His Church, He is calling into service His people from countries such as Canada, the UK, US, Netherlands, Egypt, Brazil, Nigeria, Kenya, Korea and Singapore. As they come together, they have the central bond of service to God, and the stress of dealing with each others’ cultures.
Culture affects how we view the world around us. In fact, our personality, emotions, decision processes, morality, understanding of the physical world and understanding of the spiritual world are all coloured by our culture.
In Revelation, we read of every tribe, tongue and nation unified in worshiping the Lamb, similar to what happened in Acts 2. Whether it is the world that we are reaching in our mission field or the people we work with in mission, what a day that will be!
