Each of us normally has 10 fingers. Have you ever wondered why God has given us this specific number? I believe it is because 10 is the number of completeness. We can use these 10 fingers to complete our work with, as we go about our business.
We can also lift these hands of 10 fingers in complete worship to God. We must present them to Jesus so that He can work through us. Let’s raise our hands to God in complete praise, offering ourselves and all that we do, to Him. We can offer them for His use, as He moves through us. Only in Christ can any of our work truly be complete! He originally made us complete, but mankind became flawed and incomplete when Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden. Now, if we have been washed in the blood of the Lamb, the Lord Jesus Christ, we are complete in Him again! If that has happened to you, He longs to and will work through you completely as you let Him!
God has also given us 10 toes. Everywhere we go should be completely at His bidding. Romans 10:15 (NASB) says, “HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!” The KJV says, “How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”
Isaiah 52:7 says, “How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, ‘Your God reigns!’” The feet mentioned here are even willing to climb mountains to spread the Gospel! So we see that not only are our works with our hands to be completely done in Christ, but our feet, with their 10 toes, are made to completely be doing His work also, going where He wants us to go to share the Gospel (Good News) about Jesus with those who need Him as their Salvation! As we actually go do this, we will be walking in His footsteps; men and women following Jesus! Does this sound like an exciting lifestyle to you?
This puts a whole new spin on what the meaning of life is, something we may have forgotten, as we live out our very busy schedules. We have been made to be used by Him to praise Him, to work with His power, and to go and spread the word about Jesus!
So, let us individually, and as the Church, ask the Lord Jesus to help us serve Him with our hands and feet as He empowers us with His strength and His Holy Spirit! Do you want to lift your hands in worship and dedication to God? Do you want to have “beautiful feet” that go to share the gospel, wherever Jesus may lead you?
