This podcast covers Lesson Four of The Whole Armor of God Bible study on having our feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. It discusses how we can have beautiful feet by sharing the gospel. It defines the good news of the gospel as being Jesus' completed work of reconciling us back to God through His death, burial, and resurrection. We need to know what we believe and why, and always be prepared to give an answer for the hope that is in us.
In line with preparing our feet, look at the soccer cleats in this photo. Those are probably the best modern-day example of what the Roman soldiers wore as sandals with cleats to help them stand fast in battle. We need to be rooted in the Word to help us remain steady in spiritual battles. Also, this is a great picture because you see the athlete advancing down the field. We are not only to stand strong, but to advance the truth of the gospel wherever our feet take us.
I pray you will diligently seek to know the gospel and clearly articulate the good news so you can share it with your neighbors and the nations as ministers of reconciliation.
