Scars...

Once again, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I must say that I'm happy today is my Lord's Day.

It's SONday!  The day when I would love to be able to go worship with my church family, but cannot.  Hopefully, my health will improve soon, so that I can do this!

Instead, I'll worship Him, at home, once again.

A Facebook (FB) friend, Alvin Rauh who is a fellow blogger of Simply Alvin (look for the link I provide), posted on my wall/timeline a link to a song.  I thought it was beautiful.  And, it's one I had never heard, before.

The song is sung by Florida Boys and is entitled, Scars in the Hands of Jesus.  Here's a link, so you can listen and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPRQEp5eLDM#t=193.  The lyrics are below.

Scars in the Hands of Jesus

My eyes haven't seen nor have my ears heard
What my Father has in store
But when I hear the song of a sweet singing bird
I'm closer than I've been before
To that heavenly home built by God alone
According to His perfect plan.
Where the only thing there that's been made by man
Are the scars in the hands of Jesus.

Yes I'm headed for a home built of God alone
Hallelujah praise God I am
Where the only thing there that's been made by man
Are the scars in the hands of Jesus.

And, when I see a mountain covered with snow
Falling from Heaven above
It makes me feel small hardly nothing at all.
Oh just to know that I'll be part of
That mansion world where the gates of pearl
Will be opened by an angel's hand.
And the only thing there that's been made by man
Are the scars in the hands of Jesus.

Oh yes I'm headed for a home built of God alone
Hallelujah praise the Lord I am
Where the only thing there that's been made by man
Are the scars in the hands of Jesus.

Where the only thing there that's been made by man
Are the scars in my Saviour's hands.

Thinking about the scars in Jesus' hands, reminds me of His disciple, Thomas. 

Thomas has often been called, doubting Thomas.  Why?  Because he wasn't with the other disciples, when Jesus first visited them, after being crucified, and resurrected.  And, truly wasn't convinced about Jesus being alive.

Please, read about it here, in John 20:24-29, "But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.
26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.
28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed."

Those Bible verses explain totally what happened, with Thomas and Jesus.  I'm grateful our Lord provided for Thomas to be able to see Him, and be convinced that He had risen, and was indeed alive.

Even in our world today, there are people who do not believe God exists.  Some don't believe anything at all about our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Believe me, when I say that I pray for people like that.  Those people will be truly dismayed when they realize that due to their unbelief, they will spend eternity in Hell, separated from God.  With no chance of escape.

How grateful I am that Jesus let us know that those of us who believe, even though we have not seen, are blessed. 

Yes, we're truly blessed. 

By believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, we have been saved.  And, will spend eternity in Heaven, with Him.  Hallelujah!  Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
