Summary of passage: Paul says how awesome are those who spread the Good News so that others may hear and believe.
3) Part personal Question. My answer: Someone preaches to others about Christ, they listen, and then they believe and call upon the Lord. I grew up in the church so my memories are vague. I’ve always believed in Christ but I’m sure someone had to tell me about the Lord and I listened and then believed and call/called upon Him.
4) The Good News is that Christ died for our sins and was raised from the dead, justifying us before God, and granting us eternal life.
5) Personal Question. My answer: To share the Good News with all through my life and through giving God the credit in my life and through flat-out sharing who Christ is.
Conclusions: All questions we’ve answered before.
End Notes: Paul rightly observes that it all goes back to the preaching of the gospel, and preachers must be sent – both by God and the Christian community at large.
God could have chosen any means for the message of salvation to come, such as angelic messengers or directly working without a human preacher. God’s “normal” way of bringing people to Jesus Christ is through the preaching of the gospel.
The feet speak of activity, motion, and progress, and those who are active and moving in the work of preaching the gospel have beautiful feet.
This is joyful cheer of those who are spreading the Good News. It should bring us great joy when we spread the Gospel as well!!
