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? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
But I ask: Did they not hear? Of course they did:
“Their voice has gone out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.” ~ Romans 10:14-15, 18
God sees as beautiful the feet of those who bring good news. He honors us and values us enough to commission us with the task of taking his gospel message to the ends of the earth. And, we should honor him and value him enough to take seriously that responsibility and the trust he has given to us, and we should make it an important part of our lives to be deliberate in sharing Christ and his message of salvation with the world around us.
How Beautiful / An Original Work / May 27, 2011
Based off of Romans 10:11-18
How beautiful the feet of those
Who bring to us Good News.
Their voice has gone to all the earth,
So all the world could choose.
They tell the story of Christ’s love;
He died on Calvry’s tree.
He took our sins upon Himself,
So from sin we’d be free.
How beautiful the saints of God
Who join in holy prayer
To offer up to God requests,
To meet them in despair.
They’re burdened for their loved ones’ need
To know the Lord above;
To trust upon His saving grace,
And know His wondrous love.
How beautiful the servants of
Our Lord and Savior, King.
They sit at Jesus’ feet each day
To hear the words He brings.
They love their Lord and Master, friend.
He’s first love of their lives.
They wait for His return one day;
They’ll meet Him in the skies.
