- Gospel of Peace
When we understand the Good News (Jesus died for our sins, arose from the grave, and is in Heaven preparing a place for us), then we have peace and do not need to be afraid. Ephesians 6:15 says, "For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared." We can take a step without fearing of what will happen because we know God is in control. With the shoes on we can tell others the Gospel and Good News of Jesus.
