Beautifull are the feet of those who bring good news.   Leave a comment

Isaiah 52: 7

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim good news, who proclaim salvation, who says to Zion. ‘ Your God reigns”

Ray Comfort quoting Spurgeon had this to say, ‘Those who care not for the souls of others, may very well not be saved themselves.” I do confess I find it hard to speak out for my saviour at times, it is not easy to stand up and say, there is only ONE way, ONE truth and that is to be reconciled to God by the death and sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ.

But this is beautiful news, to one trapped and enslaved by sin, it is wonderful news to the one who knows that in himself he is really nothing, yet  IN Christ he may share abundant spiritual wealth. Our world is tired of its materialism, its atheism and its false religion. I meet to many diverse kind of people who are mostly at real gut level, really angry at life. The cry of the average person who know little or nothing of Christ can only say “Its not Fair!” Why should I suffer I am not such a bad person. Well the bad news is that there are no good people, that includes me and you, we are depraved to the core and left to ourselves we are capable of the worst kind of sin that human iamgination can conjure up.
But this is where the good news becomes beautifu;l the good news is for sinners . Of course life is not fair, should those who violate God’s law and rejet His overtures of love be given a fair deal ? The Bible clearly says in various places. “ God has subjected this sinful world to futility’ ( my paraphrase)

So here it is then the, good news is that God has done this wondrous thing for us , he has passed the sentence of death on sinners but has paid the price to redeem those who come to Him and believe in His name. Life is not fair is maybe not the correct kind of statement, in fact our due as law breakers is futility and death, but thanks be to God, we have redemption though Christ Jesus our Lord. If this day you have not looked to Cross, do so now!

For our God reigns, and all things will work together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. As Christians we have good news to share, so let us share it, ” Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!”
