"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, 'Your God reigns!'"
Yet, in this verse from Isaiah, the beauty of those who bring the good news of peace found in Christ surpasses even the beauty of creation. Because “faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17). While the beauty of creation shouts out about the existence of a Creator, the Gospel shouts out about the salvation in Christ that the Creator has provided in His love.
The creation proclaims God; the Gospel provides for the restoration of creation. People are changed by the Gospel. They are born anew. Creation still groans under the weight of the curse of sin. But all creatures found in Christ are restored now by the Gospel.
Creation is awesome, but the Gospel is even more so.
