MEMORISE: “And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;” – Ephesians 6:15

READ: Ephesians 6:13-17

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Zechariah 7-9; Revelation 19


The gospel means good news. Wearing it as shoes therefore implies going around sharing the good news. It may surprise you that this is an armour for spiritual warfare, but it is. When you preach the gospel to anyone, you are engaging in warfare. Anyone who is not born again is under the bondage of the devil and Jesus said that if you want to go and take something out of the house of the strong man, you must be a stronger man that can bind that strong man and take what was his.

If you have been preaching to someone and that person is not willing to receive Christ, it could be because you have not bound the devil in that fellow’s life. Until you bind the devil, he will not let that fellow go.

Don’t approach preaching the gospel as just any other exercise, it is warfare.


Soldiers never run away from war, if you are truly in God’s army, you will preach the gospel

Hymn 15

1 Wonderful story of love;
Tell it to me again;
Wonderful story of love;
Wake the immortal strain!
Angels with rapture announce it,
Shepherds with wonder receive it;
Sinner, 0 won’t you believe It?
Wonderful story of love.

Wonderful! Wonderful!
Wonderful, Wonderful story of love.

2 Wonderful story of love,
Though you are far away;
Wonderful story of love;
Still He doth call today;
Calling from Calvary’s mountain,
Down from the crystal bright fountain,
E’en from the dawn of creation,
Wonderful story of love.

3 Wonderful story of love:
Jesus provides a rest;
Wonderful story of love;
For all the pure and blest,
Rest in those mansions above us,
With those who’ve gone on before us,
Singing the rapturous chorus,
Wonderful story of Love.
