Sunday morning language barrier

One of the verses that impacted us in becoming members of Wycliffe and serving in Bible translation is Revelation 7:9.  After this I saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb.

How can every language stand before the throne if not everyone who speaks the languages has heard?  That’s part of what lit a fire in us.

David answers technological help questions for YouVersion Bible App.  He does have many technological questions that come in, however, he also has theological questions that he’s asked, moral questions, comments, angry people, etc…   Some comments are odd and some are encouraging.

He received an encouraging comment on Monday.  On Easter Sunday a man at a U.S. church sat next to a family that recently arrived in the United States.  The man could tell that this family couldn’t fully understand everything that was being shared.  When the preacher shared the verses he’d been preaching from, the man searched on his phone in the YouVersion Bible App and found the Romanian translation, switched it to Romanian and handed his phone to the family sitting next to him.  The family lit up, very grateful for this precious gift of reading God’s Word in their language so they could fully understand the Easter message.
