OUR WEAPONS OF WAR
Having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Ephesians 6:15
In order to take the gospel around the world one must have the proper shoes. You wouldn't go in flipflops or barefoot because it would limit your reach to the masses! But this passage isn't talking about worldly shoes, it is explaining your preparedness to take His gospel to the lost!
When a horse is shod the hoof must be prepared by cleaning and trimming them and then the metal shoe is nailed on. We however are to show ourselves approved as workman who can handle accurately His word, including the gospel of Jesus Christ. Once we have learned all the components of the gospel, then we are ready to share it with the lost!
The apostle Paul warned the Galatian church that whoever perverted or preached a different gospel let him be accursed! It is of the utmost for us to learn what the true gospel says without adding to, or taking away from its content!
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes. Romans 1:16
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
