Re:Verse reading–Romans 9:1-8, Romans 10:1-21 (day four)
Paul is quoting the Old Testament prophet, Isaiah, in verse 15. “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things!” It is a well-known missions verse…seen on many mission team T-shirts. It is a progression of questions, beginning with verse 14…drawing us to a logical conclusion. “How will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? How will they preach unless they are sent?” (v.14) It is a primary task of the church…to send missionaries into all the world to share the gospel. Sounds a lot like the Great Commission. If we cannot go ourselves, we help to send others. We are a part of the process, or at least, we should be. How are you involved in missions? Are you going? Are you sending? Are your feet beautiful?
