The Border That Matters To God
by Wayne Blank
The graphic below was produced by server statistics software. It's a "snap shot" of visitors to Daily Bible Study at 7 am (here) some time ago. The green bars represent visitors to the web site (i.e. where on the planet requested pages were being sent to) at that moment in the part of the world directly above the green bar - the taller the bar, the more readers. The graphic constantly changes through the "day" (which now never ends for Daily Bible Study) like a rolling wave across the world's time zones. For example, the tall "spike" shown in North and South America is the Eastern time zone where the day was just beginning at 7 am for most readers there, whereas the bars were lower for the adjacent Central, Mountain and Pacific times zones which were 6, 5, and 4 am - a little later, they too were "spiking."
The graphic is also indicative of the world's religions, readership is high over North and South America, then across Britain and Europe, parts of Africa, and then dropping off in the nations east of Israel (readership is high in Israel), and then rising again in Australia, New Zealand and areas of Indonesia. Readers are found in almost every nation (and now even by satellite to ships at sea), but in some nations much more than others.
We humans have many borders, and there isn't anything necessarily wrong with that, for now. We all have our own homes, our own cultures, our own values, and countries that we love and are loyal to. But human borders should end where the Gospel begins, because the only border that matters to God is the dividing line between those who truly obey Him, and those who don't. The Kingdom of God will not be divided; it will have one Ruler, one Government, one Truth. And, regardless of where "here" is for each of us, there's only one Way to get there.
