that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings
of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto
The Bible sometimes seems to sound topsy
turvy. We usually think of the beauty of
the face -not of the feet. Our feet are
usually covered. When we meet people we
look at their faces first and the feet last.
Feet laden with the Gospel are beautiful. We read of great battles like
Jesus brought the news, 'I have conquered. You will also conquer.' Look at the Cross. Look at the empty grave. 'Look, I am reigning on high.' Young man, you will not be defeated! O divided home, there is solution for you! O sick man there is healing for you. O troubled society, there is good news for you.
'How beautiful are the feet of those that bring good news!' To how many souls have we carried this good news? Your only joy will be the help you have rendered to a helpless sinner. When you always carry good news you will become good. If a vessel is always used to carry good water and to pour it out, it will become clean. Though it may have been unclean at the start, it will soon become clean. It is a great virtue to think well of others and always wish them well. Christ never felt a repulsion towards anybody.
