Beautiful Feet – SoS Saturday

How beautiful are your feet in sandals,
O prince’s daughter! 

Song of Songs 7:1

The first thing catches her followers attention about the bride of Christ is her feet. This idea of beautiful or lovely feet is not unique to the Song, but it’s actually the first time it comes up in the Word.

We find two other references to lovely feet in the prophets:

How lovely on the mountains
Are the feet of him who brings good news,
Who announces peace
And brings good news of happiness,
Who announces salvation,
And says to Zion,
“Your God reigns!”

Isaiah 52:7

Behold, on the mountains the feet of him who brings good news,
Who announces peace!
Celebrate your feasts, O Judah;
Pay your vows.
For never again will the wicked one pass through you;
He is cut off completely.

Nahum 1:15

In both cases the prophets Isaiah and Nahum speak of a messenger of peace, and bringing good news.

Paul uses the glue gun of New Covenant revelation to firmly attach this to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Romans 10, as he describes preaching as the delivery system for the message of salvation.

How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, “HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!” – Romans 10:14-15

It’s a sure mark of maturity that as we go we are brining the Good News of the gospel, and where we go we are leaving a wake of peace.

Paul even gives us this picture as part of our equipment, when he dresses us in the full armor of God.


The fact that she is wearing sandals tells me she is no longer living only the in secret place, but she is, in fact, running with her Groom in the hills and mountains – out in the highways and byways of life.

She has given her feet to the gospel.

Paul exhorts us in Romans 6

and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. – Romans 6:13

He calls us not just to say “Yes Lord” I will follow you, but to present our members – let’s say body parts – to God as instruments of righteousness.

The call I hear today, in this beautiful song – is present your feet to God as agents of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace. Strap on your sandals and get out there and make some disciples. [Tweet This] Let the wave of peace that resided in you, in the person of the Prince of Peace, cause a change in the atmosphere everywhere your sandals take you.

You have beautiful feet!

Walk your faith out into the world today.
