How Are Your Feet?

We might not be able to improve or change a whole lot of things about us, but we can indeed have that happen with our feet as we obey the Lord reaching out to others. Yup, according to the apostle Paul, we can have beautiful feet as by faith they hit the street: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!"  10:15rom.


"Oh is it not a magnificent thing to be privileged thus..to spread the glorious tidings of our Blessed Lord!" ~ Amy Charmichael

Spreading the far-beyond-great Tidings of Jesus' Gospel isn't really just the responsibility of trained Bible teachers and professional church pastors in some contained kinda religious or non-religious nook. All who know Jesus personally are also privileged and called to share Him in or outside a nook.. on a personal level with people even beyond Facebook.

P. Sometimes God, it's easier to tweet about you than to go tell. We know it's important for those you direct, but there seems to be a level of protection built-in with social networks.. in the sense that the uber-aggressive can't really punch you in the face etc. God, show us how we can appropriate your grace, segway, broach, and effectively bring up spiritual matters - the topic of eternal life in Christ when we come face to face with our friends, family, coworkers, fellow students and others. With new media opportunities and without live big through us. We know that with some primitive mission-fields still... joyous Christians physically arriving there on site "ready to say," is the only way to actually bring those there the Good News, Lord. In Jesus Name help us follow You where you lead.  

"How 
shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?" 10/14rom.

Christ has no hands but our hands to do His work today;
He has no feet but our feet to lead men in His way;
He has no tongue but our tongue to tell men how He died;
He has no help but our help to bring them to His side. ~ Flint

Lord, we are willing to be used of You in witnessing daily, so please give us boldness and wisdom so that we each can present the truth in a way that would be just right for each person that we meet. We want feet just like Yours in relation to the Great Commission. Thanks Jesus. 

Again, the Bible clearly says, "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the Gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!" 10/15rom.
