“and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace.” (Ephesian 6:15, NKJV)
We all know the verses of scripture that tell us to put on the “whole armor of God.” One of the articles of the soldier’s attire is having proper footwear. In this case, Paul tells us we must have our feet covered with the gospel of peace.
What is Paul saying? He is telling us that we must walk the walk of peace. The gospel of Jesus is the message that God comes to give us peace. Deliverance brings peace. Salvation brings peace. God sent Jesus into the world that the world would have peace through Him. Those who walk with and in Jesus are those who walk or live their lives in peace. We must be those who walk in peace.
1. Have you ever met anybody who, wherever they went they left the place in a mess?
2. Have you ever met anyone who always has a complaint, problem or issue?
3. Are you a person or do you know anyone who always finds the negative to talk about, either in a situation or in another person?
These are people who do not walk in peace. Those who walk in peace are encouragers. They empower and inspire others. They assist rather than tear down. These are the persons who have their feet “shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.” These are persons who WALK IN PEACE!
