Ephesians 6:15 (KJV)
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
The Roman sandals were made with nails that gripped the ground firmly even when it was sloping or slippery. The sign of the Christian soldier is readiness—a readiness to march and to bear witness to the gospel. Wherever the Christian soldier’s feet take him, he shares the gospel that can firmly ground a world reeling under the weight of desperate need and conflict.
Some Christians will say they do not have the gift of evangelism. They feel that they do not have to share the gospel. Praying for others to complete the work each Christian is commanded to perform in the great commission presented in Matthew’s gospel (Matthew 28:19-20). Each of us have to prepared to share our faith if we refuse souls will be lost and are effectiveness as a positive witness to the world.
Dear Lord: Give me the courage to stand boldly in my sandals of the gospel. So I can share the good news of what was done for every sinner centuries ago. Give me the opportunity to see the miracle of salvation one more time.
In Jesus name I pray amen.
