2 Chronicles 14:1-16:14
Verse of the day:
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger who brings good news, the good news of peace and salvation, the news that the God of Israel reigns! (Isaiah 52:7)
As the people of God, we know the answers to this world’s problems; they need peace, and we know who has it to offer. This great privilege to take the good news to the world carries with it a great responsibility—we must be diligent in our efforts to do so. In our passage, we find a statement concerning the feet of those that "brings good tidings that publishes peace; that brings good tidings that publishes salvation; that said unto Zion, your God reigns!" Why are their feet said to be beautiful? Because the feet are carrying someone publishing peace, (we find similar phrasing in Nahum 1:15).
Apparently, it is a glorious thing for those who know God’s peace to take the message to those who do not yet know the Lord.
So today, let’s dust off our feet and carry the good news to those who need to hear it.
