Developing Beautiful Feet

Day 13 (19 August 2018, Sunday)

Romans 10:15 And how are they to preach unless they are sent?  As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”

The Apostle Paul asked rhetorically, “And how are they to hear without someone preaching?”  And how are they to preach unless they are sent?”  (Romans 10:14 – 15) He then quoted Isaiah 52:7,” How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”

God gave us feet to walk and move from one location to another.  We were meant to be on the move to extend the limits of our influence and to connect with others.  If we wish to love people, to care for them, we must move towards them.

God, Himself is a God who walks.  Adam and Eve heard the sound of the LORD God “walking” in the garden.  The Lord Jesus left His heavenly abode and “walked” among the seven churches.  In contrast, many idols are depicted as either sitting, standing or even sleeping.

God gave us feet to walk and bring the good news of salvation to a lost and dying world.  When we obey God this way, we have “beautiful feet”.

Many years ago, I shared the good news of Christ’s salvation with an elderly lady in our city.  In response to the gospel message of God’s grace, she wept tears of repentance and was filled with joy.  She then kissed my hands in appreciation.  Perhaps she should have kissed my feet!  Surely my feet were more responsible than my hands for bringing me there!

Friends, do you have beautiful feet?

John 3:16 – 17 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send is Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.

Seek Sexual Purity and Flee from Immorality

1 Corinthians 6:18 Flee from sexual immorality.  Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.
