“Happy Feet ”  Part four, “Dress Codes”, a sermon series, by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

  The sign read, “No Shoes NO Service”  “Why?”, I thought. I found myself looking around in the beach ice cream place to see if everyone had shoes on. It looked to be about half the people there had shoes. The others must have either not seen the sign or just ignored it. Feet aren’t pretty for everyone. Jesus washed his disciples feet. What an act of humility.

Songs of Salomon  7:1   How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O prince’s daughter! the joints of thy thighs are like jewels, the work of the hands of a cunning workman.

Isaiah 52:7  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!

 Ephes. 6:15  And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

 John 13:8-9  Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. [9] Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.

 2 Tim. 2:15  Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

 Mark 16:15  And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

A Time to Praise

2 Samuel 6:14   And David danced before the Lord with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.

Psalm 150:4   Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.

Eccles. 3:4   A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A Time to Work

 

John 9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

2 Samuel 22:30  For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.

Philip. 2:16  Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

Hebrews 12:1  Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

1.Lay aside every weight Paul’s purpose here is to get the believer to lay aside whatever weight is hindering Christian progress.

2.Lay aside the sin which doth so easily beset us  The sin that easily
besets is the one each person has been addicted to, whatever is his weakness.

3.Run with patience the race set before us

4.Look unto Jesus He is the head of all the long train of faith heroes. He is the Author and Perfecter of our faith.

5.Consider Him  Observe and analyze every part of His life and
conduct, His courage in sufferings

Take Command of Your Feet.

1 Peter 4:4  Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:

2 Thes. 3:11  For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.

1 Tim. 5:13  And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.

Use Your Feet  Isa. 57:1

1.   To bring good tidings.

2.   To publish peace.

3.   To publish salvation.

4.   To announce that God reigns in Zion.
