Beautiful Feet


 
“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news. Who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, ‘Your God reigns!'” (Isaiah 52:7).

It is odd that with our voices we proclaim the Good News, “Your God reigns!” but God singles out our feet and says they are beautiful. Feet are certainly useful. They’re our number one mode of transportation, and it’s been that way since before the wheel. Even in our car, it’s our feet that have to mash down the gas pedal if we are to go anywhere. So, why does God single out the feet of him who brings good news? God wants our feet to take us places, even to the tops of mountains to proclaim the Good News. Our feet are beautiful not when we are propping them up on a footstool and telling all our Facebook friends about the love of God, but when we are using them to take the Good News to the poor, the hurting, the lost. Our number one mode of transportation is beautiful when it is being used for our number one purpose. “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation” (Mark 16:15). Sometimes the “all the world” is right across the street.

The night of his arrest, Jesus washed His disciple’s feet. It was a powerful example of servanthood and love, but it might also have been to prepare them for the task to come. “You will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8). God want us to go, personally, to put human form to the Good News; God reigns! Look what He did for me!

Men, someone you know needs to find what you found in Jesus. Somebody told you. Unless you are willing to get to your feet and proclaim the Good News to them, they may never find the hope and joy that you have found in Him.

“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news. Who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, ‘Your God reigns!’” (Isaiah 52:7).
