Psalm 115:3-7 – Beautiful Feet

Psalm 115:3-7
3
But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.
4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.
5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:
6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:
7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.

-They have feet, but they can’t walk; why would anyone want to serve a “god” that can’t walk?  Think about how far Jesus walked for us:  He took on human feet and walked the earth to reveal the truth of God’s Salvation and “preach deliverance to the captives” of sin (Luke 4:18); He walked into the mountains and deserts to pray for strength to finish the job He alone could finish (Luke 5:16); and when the time was right, He walked the hill to Golgatha and laid His life down on the cross (Matthew 27:31).  There is no beauty in the feet of a lifeless idol, but “how beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!” (Isaiah 52:7)
