But to wear sandals, and not to put on two tunics. Mark 6.9

After our conversion, when we were taken out of the empire of darkness and transported into the Kingdom of God, we became participants of the  spiritual warfare. The Lord knows the way to use us in battle, in order to help other people come out of darkness and go into the wonderful Kingdom of the Son of God’s love (Colossians 1.13). Those who do not come forward to fight when called upon will be considered rebels.

The apostles sent out in twos were to avoid carrying some things, but they would need to wear sandals. This means more than protection for their feet; it represents the ability to carry out the work successfully. It is clear that this guidance was in figurative language, as Paul told the Ephesians: and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace (Ephesians 6.15). These shoes were the preparations for the Gospel to come to us.

Jesus said that He had given power to 70 disciples. They were amazed that even the demons submitted to their commands: Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you (Luke 10.19). The sandal is found in what the brothers suffered for the Good News to come to our days with full force, bringing the deliverance that humanity needs to leave the empire of darkness.

The Bible also says that God will soon crush Satan under our feet (Romans 16.20). This was also said in a symbolic sense. The foot is the part of the body that walks on the earth, the world. Each step of ours has an enormous weight of destruction. Therefore, as we move with faith, under the guidance of the Most High, we will crush every ability of the tempter. The Lord accomplished this through the footsteps of the four lepers who went to the camp of the Syrians (2 Kings 7:8,9).

The Lord made the serpent know what would happen to it when man was rescued: And I will put enmity, between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel (Genesis 3:15). When preaching the Gospel, we tread on serpents and scorpions, figures used to identify the worst demons. For this reason, we must have our feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of Peace. God knows everything!

According to the Master, we must not wear two tunics, two doctrines – the positive one, which speaks of our ability by faith; and the man’s, fearful one, which tells us to be careful, because it declares that the king of hell may get angry and attack us. As to that, don’t believe it! Jesus said that the 70 would tread on serpents and scorpions and nothing, absolutely nothing, would harm them. Christ has thought of our needs and has already met them. So, Church, go forth and do the work!

Be careful not to fall into the trap of people with no spiritual judgment formed. They will fill you with fear if you listen to them. On the mount of the transfiguration, the Father spoke to the apostles: “And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, ‘This is my beloved Son; hear him’” (Luke 9.35). We must listen only to the Holy Spirit, who conducts the divine work. Then, we will be successful. The power is in our feet!

In Christ, with love,

God, Whom we hear! May we have Your sandals on our feet. This way, we will be used by You to give the devil what he deserves: to be crushed and smashed under the authority received from You. May everything be for Your praise!

We cannot dress ourselves in two doctrines, but only please You. The fruit of our work should be to cooperate with You in the fulfillment of Your purpose. For this, we need to be well fed by Your good Word!

Our tunic must be that of the true Gospel, in which no evil and pernicious work can be found, but one that comes from Your pure and immaculate heart. We give You glory and praise. Use us for Your glory and the expansion of Your Kingdom!
