Living Hope | Romans 10:14-15 | Devotional
Romans 10:14-15 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!"
Salvation is of the Lord. He is the one who breathes life into the spiritual corpse. He is the One who brings a person to himself. And…amazingly God uses people in the supernatural process.
You and I have the privilege of carrying and proclaiming the message of salvation. The words that place a person on the road to an eternal relationship with the living God come from our lips! God then works in the heart of the hearer to understand the Good News and trust in Jesus alone as the only way the Father. We get to partner with God in the eternal work of salvation!
Paul ends the truth of this amazing partnership with a quote from the Old Testament. Isaiah 52:7 refers to runners who brought exiles the good news of their imminent release from captivity in Babylon. You and I are now the runners who bring the Good News of release from captivity in sin. Let’s go do some running!
Father, thank you for the privilege of partnering with you in the amazing work of salvation. Give us the courage to run often and run well with the Good News! For Jesus’ sake. Amen.
