The Feet that Bring the Good News of Peace

As I read the prophetic book of Nahum, I see a familiar sounding passage:
“Look, there on the mountains, the feet of one who brings good news, who proclaims peace!” 
[Nahum 1:15a]

I find a similar text in Isaiah:
“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace…” [Isaiah 52:7]

The book of Romans even quotes Isaiah:
“As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”  [Romans 10:15]

But these are not what I am thinking of.  Knowing that “good news” means “gospel,” I do some searching and find:
“Your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.”  [Ephesians 6:15]

I get excited when I see themes repeated throughout the Bible; it adds emphasis and reinforces the timelessness of the message.

May we all be people who bring peace!
