Romans 10, part 2 - Beautiful Feet

Feet are not usually something we think of as beautiful. But in the next couple of verses we read about some really beautiful feet.

14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?

15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

What a challenging passage of scripture for us all who call ourselves Christians. God is calling us to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. We need to reach out to all those we come in contact with and share the love of Jesus.
Our missionaries are just about the most amazing people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They give up all the comforts of home to go to some place that is so foreign to them. Many leave loved ones, many leave security, and many leave everything to share the love of Christ.... wow, such compassion such zeal! What beautiful selfless people.

We need to remember our missionaries who "go into all the world" to preach the gospel in prayer. We need to pray for them and give to help them go into the areas that we are not able to go to. Our missionaries are our heroes!

17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.

We need to share the message of Christ. His love, His compassion, His longing for a relationship with us is what the world needs to hear. We need to share the Good News with the people around us and if we cannot go too far off countries help those who can.

The beautiful feet of missionaries and sharing Jesus help me....
