As I was preparing for this month’s study in Romans 10, for the men’s staff breakfast, there was a verse that kept sticking in my mind. Paul quotes the prophet Isaiah in Rom 10:15, when he says “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” God is sending us as “foot soldiers” of the Gospel of peace.
- God’s sending people, leads to His Word being spoken
- His Word being spoken leads to people hearing
- Because of His Spirit, people hearing leads to people believing
- And people believing leads to the building of God’s Kingdom
Our goal should be to have beautiful feet, by sharing the reason for the hope we have. Sometimes I cant myself thinking that I have a message that people have heard, don’t want to hear, or are tired of hearing, because I don’t give the Holy Spirit His due.
I am simply the messenger. However, the task given me was not a holy suggestion, it was the divine will of God…who loved me, and gave himself up for me!
Okay feet. Let’s working on being a little bit more beautiful today.
