Holy Footwear

Eph 6:15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

I use to watch a reality show called Naked and Afraid.
Not to worry, they blurred a lot of the body out.
It’s about survivalists dropped in jungles, deserts, savannahs, and forests around the world and they must survive for 21 days with nothing but, perhaps, a knife, a map, and a firestarter.
One of the first things the survivalists do is find a place to camp, find a water source, and then try to make something protective for their feet, especially in rocky or thorny areas.
They know even minor damage to their feet could keep them from traveling to the extraction point.
Your feet are the foundation of your body, able to withstand the entirety of your weight.
Shoes were important to the Roman soldier when Paul wrote today’s scripture.
The shoes worn by the Roman soldiers were nothing compared to today’s footwear but they did the job.
As a Christian, your foundation is the Gospel of peace.
Ps 85:8 says, “I will hear what God the Lord will speak, For He will speak peace To His people and to His saints.”
Again, the Gospel of peace is the word of God and the word of God protects the foundation of your body.
With your feet shod with the gospel, you are ready to travel anywhere and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.
You can trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19
It’s good to know God’s word protects you as you put one foot in front of the other today.
