Beautiful Feet?

Romans 10:15 says, And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

Now, I don’t know about you, but are feet really beautiful?

My granddaughter, Adali, has beautiful chubby baby feet! I’m sure you’d think so, too. And I’ve seen women with long lean feet that are truly lovely. But I’m not sure I’d call most feet…beautiful. However, just having feet to walk on is certainly a blessing! And more importantly, God says they are beautiful when they bring good news!

The good news Paul is talking about in this scripture is the gospel. The wonderful news of what the Son of God has done for all the world. This news proclaims that though you are a sinner, the Savior, Jesus Christ, has died as your substitute on the cross and will live in you forever through His Holy Spirit. You only need to confess your sin to Him and turn away from it, believing that He died and rose again for you. Then, He will live His life through you, so you too can have beautiful feet to share His good news with others! So please start walking with Him today in your first steps of faith!

And there you go!

Good Works! Seriously!

Have you ever made anything and been truly pleased and satisfied with your production? Don’t tune me out because you are not an artist…because neither am I. To my artist friends, however; my hat is off to you for your amazing works of art in painting or crafts.

I have made a few items, such as a decoupage doll and some ceramics, and I felt pretty good about making them. But my masterpieces often come in the form of pies or bread. When the meringue stands high and the rolls are deliciously baking and wafting their aroma, I am satisfied that I have accomplished something significant and of pleasure to others.

Ephesians 2:10 says, “We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”

We are His masterpieces and He created us in Christ Jesus to do good works. How satisfying and what pleasure it must bring our Father when we do what we were prepared to do before He even set us on this earth! When we walk in deeds of love - doing good works - His beauty shows through us. His work of art bringing glory to Him!

May He use us as we were intended today. And there you go!
 

Beautiful! Seriously!

I’ve rarely considered myself beautiful. But in Ezekiel 16:13 God says “so you were exceedingly beautiful and advanced to royalty!”

1 Peter 2:5 tells me I’m part of a holy priesthood, together with living stones built to a spiritual house acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. And Christians everywhere, so are you! We are acceptable because of Jesus Christ!

He has sought us!
He has bought us!
He has beat death!
He is in us!

To say we are unworthy is not saying what God thinks about us. He made us worthy. He chose us to be His own. He chose to make us His -  to be holy, speaking His truth - and show Himself through our bodies, His temple! Our value to Him is infinite. His love never ceases toward us. His plan to win the world works through us!

Rejoice, exceedingly beautiful one. You have advanced to royalty. For if you know Jesus, you are a child of the King.  And there you go!
