I’ve been thinking about different kinds of shoes. Dress shoes. Casual shoes. Walking shoes. Dance shoes. Running on the track and going to the gym shoes. Slips-ons, sandals, and flats. Hush puppies and Top-siders.
Basketball players wear high-tops and low-tops, leather shoes and canvas shoes. Some people prefer boots to shoes―combat boots, snow boots, cowboy boots and hiking boots.
How about gospel boots or good news shoes? They’re specifically designed for the soldier of the cross who fights against spiritual forces of wickedness in heavenly places. The Bible tells us to dress for spiritual battle with “shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace” (Eph. 6:15).
