Beautiful feet

Re: Verse reading – Romans 10:8-15; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8 (day one) 
“How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”  (Romans 10:15, also Isaiah 52:7)  Beautiful feet–isn’t that an oxymoron?  Maybe so in an appearance-focused world.  Not so if feet symbolize efforts made (walking, riding a plane, planning a broadcast, starting a Sunday School class etc.) to bring the Word of God to people who need it.  None of us intuitively knows how to be saved.  We are in darkness until the Lord reveals His character and makes our required response clear.  God’s chosen method for revealing Himself is to send a witness.  “You will be my witnesses when the Holy Spirit comes upon you” says the Lord. (Acts 1:8)  “From faith to faith” (Romans 1:17) describes the gradual growth of God’s truth–one person who believes tells another who does not yet believe. When we do it faithfully, those who hear are likely to say, “Man, I never saw anything more beautiful than your feet!”
