Passage: Isaiah 52:7

The Beautiful Feet of Preachers

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation, that saith unto Zion, thy God reigneth!

(ISAIAH 52:7)

Note in the verse above that “Thy God reigneth” is an integral part of the gospel. To the degree that preachers have lost sight of the exalted, glorified, sovereign Christ—to the same degree they have let the gospel slip away. The gospel is gospel or “good news” only in the context of Christ’s sovereign power and ability to save sinners who are “dead in trespasses and sins” (EPHESIANS 2:1; JOHN 5:21,25; REVELATION 1:17,18, PROVERBS 25:25).

“Thy God reigneth” is the very heart of the gospel hope to conscious, convicted sinners. They need a new heart, a new nature, they need LIFE! And no earthly ecclesiastical powers can help them. Only God can give life. Only One who is “mighty to save” can encourage their heart (ISAIAH 63:1, read ROMANS 10:13-15).

Apart from “Thy God reigneth” there is no good news for sinners, Adam’s fallen race. But with the sovereign Christ of Scripture, there is hope for a Saul of Tarsus, for the most obstinate and vile sinner on the face of the earth, for He is able to pursue, subdue, and renew; and He never fails! Lost soul, call upon Him. Call upon Him now. He is a suitable and sufficient, an able and willing Saviour. [AMEN!]
