The language barrier can be quite difficult to overcome. I've often wondered what it will be like when we get to Heaven. Will we all speak the same language? Or, will we all be able to understand one another's languages? One thing is for sure, there will be many tribes and nations gathered together praising our Lord. Revelation 7:9 reads, "After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands." (ESV)
A friend recently returned from a month long business trip to China. He shared that while he was there, he found a Christian church to attend. What struck me most was his description of the worship service. He said there were people representing numerous nationalities and languages. And, that although he couldn't understand all the different words that were spoken, it was evident they were all praising and worshiping the same Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior. They were sharing the universal language of music through songs of praise and they understood the One that they were all singing about.
I look forward to the day when we all get to Heaven and lift our voices in praise together. Revelation 5:9 says, "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." (ESV) What a beautiful picture of peace, harmony, and understanding between all nations!
