Sharing with others.
Something to think about
The prophet Isaiah declared ‘How beautiful are the feet of the one who brings good news'. With our feet, however smelly or calloused, we travel.
As we travel we are to be bringers of good news, bringers of God’s peace. We tend to focus on the words that we say as how we communicate good news, but here it is how we travel, what steps we take, where we go that is important.
Wherever we step, we are to carry the news of God’s peace.
But words do matter as well. As many have pointed out, the only ‘offensive’ weapon in the armour of God here is described as the sword. This is the Spirit’s sword and is the word of God.
At the beginning of John’s revelation Jesus is seen as having a double-edged sword coming from his mouth. Jesus, the living word, speaks the word of God to his world.
So we need to be people who go to places bringing God’s peace. We need, too, to be people who speak out God’s word, knowing it is powerful, to bring about God’s purpose in people’s lives.
