“As shoes for your feet put on whatever will make you ready to proclaim the gospel of peace” Ephesians 6:15 (NRSV)
We have so great a wonderful privilege being saved, having the knowledge of the word of God, and being the carriers of our precious Holy Spirit.
I am so glad to be a Christian! This is not just mere talk, it is my earnest declaration, and each time I remembered where I used to be, before embracing salvation, I can tell you, I really appreciate God’s profound love.
Back then, it was messy, a tough ride through the jungles of life, having so much to struggle about, but never getting to the point of finding the meaning to happiness.
Every moment, I want my life to praise God. You know what? I don’t think I will still be here posting this. The gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ works, and still working in me, to make a new me, and to produce the entire image of Christ in me, the reason for my divine calling.
The Gospel of Peace requires no stress, no rituals to perform. Just your faith, your belief, your compassion, your readiness to understand the love of God.
Take quick thought at the fast changes in the world, you will come to know that you must not abandon the gospel of peace. People around you, those in your world, in your neighbourhood, at your working place, and everywhere, are waiting for you to tell them about Christ.
You don’t have to carry your gigantic Bible along the street, and be shouting in the name of the Lord. I have seen many doing this, and majority of them are out of self-interest and pure hypocrisy.
Read the verse above; the Bible says just about anyhow you put on your shoes, this means, anyhow, just preach the gospel of Peace. Use you testimonies, your life experiences, your knowledge; the events when God takes you out of many deep waters, when miracles burst out in you, so many way, just preach the gospel.
You contribute to the kingdom of God when you do this. In fact, you can use your resources to preach the gospel. Through your generous giving — of money, clothes, food, shoes, books, shelter, et cetera, many lives will come to the Lord.
Now is the time for you to get serious about this. Do not wait until you are ready. Do not show any sign of laziness, or excuses not to tell everyone about Christ. Start now, preach now, give now, support now, encourage now, bless now, distribute now, show faith now, and bring now the gospel of peace to your world.
