FEET SHOD WITH THE GOSPEL


FEET SHOD WITH THE GOSPEL

Ephesians 6:15 (NKJV) And having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace.

Our next piece of armor is for our feet.  This verse says to have our feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.  The Gospel is GOOD NEWS.  We are to proclaim this good news that Jesus gave us to share.  Again, it is the Word of God that is good news.

Jesus said in Luke 4:18-19, “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; 19 to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”

Jesus brought out that the gospel was to heal the sick, help the poor, bring liberty to the captive, and to proclaim God’s “Year of Jubilee.”  The true Gospel of Jesus Christ must be a Gospel of good news.  In this great Gospel, we are to pray for the sick, preach God’s goodness to all mankind, and tell others that Jesus is coming back.

Here in this verse, it states that our feet are protected by having the Gospel of peace.  That is exactly what the message to the world is.  “Hey world!  God’s not mad at us anymore.  He has sent a Savior, and His name is Jesus!”  As we remind ourselves that God has forgiven us and accepts us, it causes us to live a life of peace.

In Romans 5:1 it says, “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”  Do you see it?  We have peace with God because of what Jesus did for us.  His sacrifice on the cross has taken the wrath of God from every person that will accept this free gift.

So today, get those marching boots on!  Proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Proclaim that He is risen, and that He has come to set us free.  When you do, you will see this peace that He promises us.

CONFESSION: Jesus is my peace.  He has taken down the wall that separated me from the Father.  I have peace with God today, because of Jesus!
