Day Eighteen : Stand by me (shoes of Good News)

and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

We spoke the other day about how the Gospel of Peace (Good News) keeps us from injuring our feet, by keeping us at peace with our fellow man.

But it also keeps us at peace with our God.

If we didn’t have the Good News of our salvation through Christ to stand upon, we would be pretty much at war with God.  Our sinful nature would be at war with his Holiness.  Our spirit would contend with His Spirit. 

We would have nowhere to stand, and nowhere to hide.


Luckily for us, we have the Good News.  We are reconciled to our God, and we are able to wear the Helmet of our Salvation, thus we can stand up straight in his presence.

Not because we deserve it, but because we can rely on our shoes.
