As I was reading in the book of Isaiah this morning, I was reminded of an important truth. It is my role to take the message of the love of God with me wherever I go. It is not about changing the message to fit the lives of those whom I meet, rather it is about sharing of His amazing love in a way that people can understand regardless of where I find myself.
In essence, I am simply an emmisary of the One Who has saved me. The imagery that Isaiah uses to describe those who carry forth God's message to people is that of lovely feet. "How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news".
As a runner, I am well aware of how important the health of my feet are to enabling me to accomplish the distances and challenges that are set before me. How much more important is it that I allow God to do whatever He needs to with my life so that I am not disqualified in proclaiming this message of love, by not taking care of the feet that He has given me?
Just something for those of us who claim His name to think about this morning.
