Week 2- Peace
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!” Isaiah 52:7 (NKJV)
I’ve always loved this verse from Isaiah. It makes me think of happy feet which leads me to picture Snoopy doing his happy dance. What joy and peace that brings to my heart!
Isaiah is talking about Jesus here. Jesus brought the good news (Gospel), proclaimed peace and salvation, and encouraged his followers with glad tidings. The Gospel is a beautiful thing. Jesus opened a new avenue for us to come to God. We can live for eternity because of the salvation he brought.
Joy and peace make my feet speak of activity, motion, and progress and of those who are active and moving in the work of preaching the Gospel of Jesus. I have a friend who is always eager to proclaim the Good News to anyone who will listen, and the world desperately needs good news. Just like my friend, we can share the good news that God sent his son to pay the price for our sins and that we have been made right in God’s eyes. The Gospel is heard only if we go with our feet and tell people. Put feet – our 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 hearts. It brings encouragement to those who have been beaten down by disappointment. Proclaim to those around you that Jesus saves. We could all use a little more peace today!
Prayer: Lord, help us to be the feet that bring your Good News to a world hungry for peace. Amen.
