And having shod (shoes) your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the firm footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace.
So Now we have strapped on the Belt of Truth and We’re wearing the Breast Plate of Righteousness and Now We’re able to Stand…but there is a war going on all around us and We’re not going to win this Spiritual Battle by being immobile….We have to ‘Go’ forth – Walking in the Shoes of Peace.
From Yesterday’s Lesson, We learned that We have already acquired Peace, when we were filled with the Fruits of the Holy Spirit.
Now, this is no ordinary peace, but it is the Peace that Transcends All Understanding!!
Here’s the part that We do Understand…
This is an Old-heirloom Peace – An inherited Peace, passed down through many generations…It’s the Same Peace That the disciples inherited when Jesus bequeathed it to them saying:
-Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid-
Jesus knew that after He had gone away, that the disciples would become cowardly and fearful when it came time for them to battle against the devil…and He knows that we too, sink back into fear, having been intimidated by the roars of Our enemy.
The Apostle Peter said: …- For that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour-
(1 Peter 5:8)
…And not only is he seeking to devour us, but he also has a battle plan – A well thought out evil, strategy to cause Us to Fall…so that He can sink his teeth into our hearts and rip our lives apart.
So Watch Out For his Set-Up!!
He’s laid out his traps and snares to tangle us up in offense, unforgiveness and bitterness…Causing us to Fall-Out with our Sisters and Brothers…Thus, Stealing our Peace!!
…Leaving us, caught-up in his deception, believing that Our Sisters and Brothers are the enemy…and treating them as such…when the devil was the instigator, all along.
Satan knows that He can render us immobile without our Peace…and he can hinder our walk…Stopping Us
from going forth as Jesus’ disciples…and as His hands and feet; As His witnesses to tell the world the Good News about Jesus and about the Peace that He Purchased for Us!!
Yes!! Jesus Paid it All…He is Our Peace Between Us and God!!
So…God is not Mad at Us!!
Jesus Is the Lamb that was slain before the foundation of the World!!
He Was the Ultimate, Acceptable Sacrifice to God for the remission of Our Sins!!
Jesus – Walking Salvation has Come Into the World!!
…And He Left Us…Heirs to Salvation…His Peace!!
So As We Walk out to the Battlefront, we must Be Spiritually prepared to…
Kick unforgiveness to the curb!!
…and Stomp on that slivering, lying, devil’s head!!
We’ve gotten ‘Punked’ by the devil for far too Long…It’s time to put him under Our Peace-Shod Feet!!
..So Let’s keep it moving…’Go!!’ Walk-On in Peace… with Yo’ ‘Bad’ Shoes on!!…Sharing the Good News about Jesus Christ with your friends, your family, your neighbors, and All the World!!
Till tomorrow, When We will Put on our Shield of Faith!!
God’s Peace Be With You…
God Loves You and So Do I!!
