Our feet be blessed - sharing the gospel (Isaiah 52:7)

"How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of him who brings good news,
who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness,
who publishes salvation,
who says to Zion, “Your God reigns."
- Isaiah 52:7

One of things I like best about sharing the gospel is that it really is good news. When I begin to share with someone I go through a series of steps. The first is I ask myself if this is really necessary for them to believe. If people don't need to believe it then there is no reason for me to share it.

Next I ask myself if I really do indeed believe this stuff. If I don't really believe it then why am I hoping others will?

Finally I reach a point where I am completely convinced that I believe this, completely convinced that this person is utterly without hope apart from Jesus and then filled with joy that I get to be the one to share with them.

I get overwhelmed as I remember what life was like before I fell in love with the Lord and then how much better it is now. And I want SO badly for this person to understand.

Sharing the gospel is bringing good news. And doing it makes me feel blessed beyond my understanding. Because, our God IS good news. Our God reigns.

Its a blessing to share the gospel, and even more a blessing when someone accepts it, simply because you know just how BIG of a decision they just made...
