Gospel of Peace

Ephesians 6:15 says: Having shod your feet with the

preparation of the gospel of peace. Shod is wearing footgear;

shoes. I have pictured here the Roman soldier shoes. It is

very interesting that they did not wear boots, but sandals. I

can see that you would have to get used to them on the

terrain. No good cushioned shoes. All I can say is Sore Feet.

But, there were also nails in the bottom of the shoes as studs

to prevent slipping.


As Christians, we also need special shoes. The readiness

comes from the Gospel of Peace. Christians are in the

spiritual warfare battle both with the inner peace Jesus has

already given and with the desire to produce that peace in

the hearts of others. This can only happen as they share this

gospel of peace” with those who have not yet heard and

accepted it. When the enemy offers false peace, we can stand

up to him. The sandals show we are ready to go out. Feet is

willingness to go out and share. 

 

So let me encourage you to go out with the Gospel in the

Peace that passes all understanding that comes from Jesus.

Are any of you confused? Confusing/Conflicting thoughts

come to your mind? Let me tell you now: This did NOT come

from God. Confusion belongs to the devil. He wants to make

you so confused that your thoughts are clouded. He does not

want you thinking about God…about Jesus. God is Peace. We

all go through things in life. The problems can cloud our

vision of God. You see I used the word: Can.  We can allow 

those clouds to remain there, or put our focus on God who

will blow those clouds away and bring you peace.

Yes, God is peace. He can give you peace during turmoil.

How can that happen? Give the problem to Him and leave it

there. That doesn’t mean you don’t do anything to remedy

the problem; just lean on Him. You do your part and trust

Him to do His part. Peace. May you have peace today.
