The Gospel takes feet for it to get out. Isaiah tells us that those who take the gospel spread the beauty of Christ. The church needs to mobilize and put feet to the Gospel by being the light of the world. When we bring the gospel, it spreads the peace and good tidings. The world needs this more than anything. We are the delivery system.
“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, Who proclaims peace, Who brings glad tidings of good things, Who proclaims salvation, Who says to Zion, “Your God reigns!”
Jesus Started It
Isaiah is talking about Jesus here. He brought the good news (gospel), proclaimed peace and salvation, and encouraged his followers with glad tidings. The Gospel is a beautiful thing. Jesus opened up a new avenue for us to come to God. We can live for eternity because of the salvation he brought.
The feet speak of activity, motion, and progress, and of those who are active and moving in the work of preaching the gospel. It is a beautiful thing when people proclaim the Gospel of the Jesus. The world desperately needs good news, and we have it inside of us. That Good news is that God sent His son to pay the price for our sins and that through that we have been made right in God’s eyes. The only way that the gospel is heard is if we go with our feet and tell people. Put feet to the Gospel.
This message of good news brings peace to those who believe. It settles those souls that are desperately seeking to fill that void in their heart. It brings encouragement to those who have been beaten down by disappointment. Proclaim to those around you that Jesus saves.
