He had beautiful
I don’t ever
remember seeing his bare feet. He probably had larger feet than most.
He had to. He stood tall at about 6 foot 5 inches. He stood tall in
And he had
beautiful feet. How do I know? Because of this Scripture:
are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad
tidings of good things!” (Romans 10:15).
He had beautiful
feet because he brought good news to all that he met. He brought the
Good News, the Gospel – the greatest news of all: that “Christ died for
our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that
He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians
15:3-4). That Good News, when it is received in good and honest hearts
and placed as the foundation of our lives, will save our souls (1
Corinthians 15:1-2). Many souls have been and are saved because this
preacher brought the Good News to them, and they believed it and obeyed
His name was W.T.
Allison and he was a great Gospel preacher. That’s why he had beautiful
And he backed his message with his life. In the
words of his daughter, Pam, “this
sweet man of God truly talked the talk and walked the walk.” Marla
Moorer Eddins summarized well the sentiments of many when she wrote of
him: “What a constant blessing he was to the entire Moorer family.
We’ve loved and adored this Christian man his whole life. He loved
greatly, preached earnestly, and laughed heartily. He was the real deal
when it comes to faithful follower of God. He just loved God! Thank
you, Mr. Allison, for blessing every single person who knew you, all the
couples you married, all the funerals you performed, all the many Gospel
sermons you preached, all the children and babies you held, all the
laughs and good jokes you shared. You will always always be in our
Now, don’t you think his feet were beautiful, too?
And even though he passed from this life earlier
this week, W.T. is still preaching. His life is still pointing us to
the Gospel of Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for our sins. Many of
us can still hear his booming voice as he proclaimed throughout his life
and even in his death:
on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved,
you and your household” (Acts 16:31). “Now [God] commands all men
everywhere to repent,
because He has appointed a day on which He will
judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has
given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead” (Acts
17:30-31). “If you confess
with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your
heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans
10:9). “And now why are you waiting? Arise and be
and wash away your sins, calling on the name of
the Lord” (Acts 22:16). “Be faithful until death, and [Christ] will
give you the crown of life” (Revelation 2:10).
I think W.T.
would also say, “Love one another; as [Christ has] loved you” (John
13:34). That’s how W.T. loved people. He loved people so much that he
would open up his heart and his life to them, and he would always make
sure they would have an opportunity to hear the Good News of Jesus.
My, how his feet
to W.T. as he continues to proclaim the Good News? Nothing would make
him happier than for you to believe and obey the Gospel and see him in
heaven one day.
You will be one
among many that will be in heaven because of the preaching and influence
of this great man of God who gave all the glory to God and to His Son,

great Gospel preacher and dear friend. Until we meet again.
