Dr. David Jeremiah Daily Devotionals and Prayer Request May 30 2022 : Bearing a Blessing

Dr David Jeremiah Daily Devotionals May 30 2022 :

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns!”
Isaiah 52:7

When King David’s armies were victorious, a messenger was sent to bring the good news of victory to the king (2 Samuel 18:26). This was common practice in the ancient Near East—a messenger bringing good news. The prophet Isaiah foresaw just a messenger coming to announce the return of God’s people from exile in Babylon (Isaiah 52:7). And the apostle Paul picked up this image when he described the spiritual armor of the believer: feet ready to bring and proclaim the Good News of the Gospel of Christ.

Which do we consider more “beautiful”—the messenger who brings good news or the one who brings bad news? Even when bad news is truth, we would much rather see arriving a messenger who we believe is bearing good news and glad tidings. So it is with the one who brings the “gospel of peace” (Ephesians 6:15). What a blessing he or she is! What a blessing such news is!

Every Christian can be a bearer of Good News in a world that so desperately needs it.

The longing of my heart is to make known my glorious Redeemer to those who have never heard.
William Burns.
