GET TOGETHER- USE YOUR GOOD LOOKING FEETRo 10:14,15 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!”
Well I am just about to get my strength back after getting back from Guatemala and playing catch up last week. We had an awesome time in Guatemala. Tinsley Gregg became the first person besides J.J. from our congregation to go with me. We entered into the labor of Daniel and Brandi
McIntyre with Eyes Wide Open Ministries. Their children are also involved in the ministry that they are doing there. We had a powerful time!
While we were there the Lord gave me the blessed opportunity to teach the Pastor’s Seminar. One day I remember using the above passage and I told the Pastors to look at one of their fellow Pastors and tell them that they had some good-looking feet. They looked at me a little weird, laughed and then did it.
Well we all know that for most of us in the natural our feet aren’t that pleasant to look at. But we are not talking about the natural appearance of our feet here. We are talking about how our feet look once they are washed in the blood of Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
I believe that this passage is not only speaking to Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers, but to all Christians that have been born again by our faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
There are people that may not hear unless you tell them. They can’t believe unless they hear. And certainly, preachers and Christian leaders are sent BY God to various places where we are called. But on the other hand, all Christians are sent somewhere. There are some of you reading this that God has sent you to your place of employment. All of have been sent to our families. And there are various other places that God sends us to. It may be the place where you spend your recreational time. It may be the place where you go for coffee. It could be lots of places.
The good news is that we have The Good News! We see so much bad news that it appears that there is no hope for humanity. There is a Hope. His Name is Jesus Christ! Tit 2:13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, (NKJV)
One of the things that challenges me when I go to Guatemala is the commitment level of the Christians there. For them the most important thing going on in their lives is getting the Gospel out. I realize that we live in a different culture. On the other hand no matter what culture that we live in our commitment level should be no lower than those Christians in any other country. So sometime today why not take some time to let the Holy Spirit speak to you about how and where that He wants those good-looking feet that you have to serve Him in the Kingdom. Somebody around you is needing to call on Him. Somebody around you is needing to hear about Him. Somebody around you is needing to believe in Him. Ask Him where He wants to send those good-looking feet. He does have somewhere for you to go . Ps 37:23 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, And He delights in his way.”
Let Us Pray
Lord Jesus Lamb of God forgive us for being hesitant to tell others the Good News about Your plan to save us from our sins, heal us from sickness and so many more things that You do for your children. Today give us the words to say to those who need to hear about you.
In Jesus Name
Now tell yourself. Self you sure do have some good looking feet!
