Having your shoes on at all times speaks of being ready for anything. In other words, you are prepared to go wherever He might send you.
Perhaps you might be sent somewhere the gospel has never been preached. You need to know the foundations of your faith. The gospel should be the bedrock of all you know and teach.
The gospel - the good news there is a remedy for sin! What better news could there be?

Are you ready to minister wherever God sends you? Got your shoes on?
