Revelation 5:6Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne—

Beautiful Scars
By Karen Holland

Jesus, the Lamb stands and reigns
Nail pierced hands and feet -Ps 22:16
A spear pierced side -Jn 19:34
His wounds for you and me -Isa 53:3-5
Now beautiful scars that tell the story
Of His great love and resurrection power
An eternal invitation to know Him
To behold Him, bow before Him and adore Him
Worthy is the Lamb to receive all honor and praise!

Beautiful scars worn by the Lamb for you and me
Display His redeeming love throughout eternity!

John 20:19-23 …     On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.

Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that he breathed on them and said, Receive the Holy Spirit. …

Jesus kept His scars and showed them. They are on display for all eternity. His scars tell the story of His great love for you and me.

A scar by it’s very nature implies healing. They are an invitation to share your testimony pointing to the healing power and love of our Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t hide your scars, they are beautiful and  have a story to tell!

Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Let the redeemed of the LORD say so{tell their story} , Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy -Ps107:1-2

Isaiah 53:3-5 AMP … He was despised and rejected and forsaken by men, a Man of sorrows and pains, and acquainted with grief and sickness; and like One from Whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we did not appreciate His worth or have any esteem for Him.

Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy].

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.
