Romans 10:14-15 NIV 2011

How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: ”How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

Paul continued his writing to the church in Rome asking four questions. These questions are rhetorical in nature beginning at an end point. After someone was sent to proclaim the truth, someone headed the message. A messenger was sent to bring good news in battle. Isaiah 52:7a “How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news.” They either choose to accept or reject Jesus saves sinners. Salvation by faith is given to followers of Jesus.

As we end BSF this year we’ve spent two weeks in the book of James. If you’ve not read through the book, it’s only 5 chapters packed with lots of personal reflective perspective. My actions speak louder than my words. Favoritism is not good. I have a sharp tongue. I like to be the line leader. Patience is not my strong suit. Prayer is powerful. I’m thankful daily I’ve been saved through faith in Jesus Christ. The gift of salvation is offered to all who choose to follow Jesus.

How will we risk social embarrassment to save lost sinners?

Ready to share Jesus together,

S
