KEY SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 52:7 KJV” How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!”
Our major topic of discussion is being strong in the Lord. We have realized that a weak Christian is an easy prey for Satan. One of the weapons provided by the Holy Spirit to be worn by the believer is the preparation of the gospel of peace and actually sharing this gospel( Eph 6:15 KJV And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;) The Bible says doing it is a way of shoding your feet or in simple terms putting on sandals to go through this life’s journey. Why do we need to get sandals on our feet? The Bible says we live in an evil world or in a dark world, filled with demons, described as snakes and scorpions (Luke 10:19). Your life is in big trouble if you do not have on your feet a proper sandal. Many Christians are suffering various kinds of injuries, because they do not have any sandals. This sandals according to the Bible is to prepare yourself with the gospel of peace and also share this message to the lost. (Eph 6:15)
YOU must be stabilized in the gospel as a Christian. The gospel of our Lord Jesus is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who will believe (Rom 1:16). The gospel is the prime answer to the human problem. Man’s basic problem is spiritual death (Romans 5:12). Spiritual death is a separation of the Spirit of God from the spirit of man. Physical death is a separation of the spirit of man from his body (James 2:26) Spiritual death is the cause of every negative thing happening to man. This include, sin, diseases, poverty, demonic bondage and all the negative things that assail humanity. The gospel takes away spiritual death. 2Timothy 1:10 KJV “But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:” Praise the Lord The gospel teaches that our Lord Jesus through his death has abolished death and has brought life and immorality to light. The gospel has dealt an eternal blow to man’s greatest problem, that is spiritual death. Death has been abolished by the death of Jesus. He has brought life, that is eternal life. Now sin has been over powered. Sickness no matter its form or name have been destroyed to the root. (Isaiah 53:4&5) Poverty has lost its shackles on men. Gal 1:4 says Jesus has given himself and has delivered us from this present evil world.
BE established in the truth of the gospel. Unfortunately, many Christians have not prepared themselves or established themselves with the gospel. They do not believe the totality of the gospel. By faith in the gospel sin should not rule you. Sickness must not destroy your life. Poverty should not torment your life. Dear child of God, get established in the gospel. It is your shoes worn in this life’s journey, without this shoes snakes and scorpions could easily attack you. You cannot effectively give what you don’t have. This gospel came to answer man’s questions. Believe it my dear one, and act on it. This is the message of peace to all mankind.
My Lord Jesus died for my sin, was resurrected to give me life, took away my sicknesses by his stripes was made poor on the cross that I might be rich and became sin that I might become the righteousness of God. I believe it and I am free in Jesus name.
