Healing Scars

But he was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities. Isaiah 53:5 NRSV

Scars are signs of hurt. They are indicators of pain. All pain comes from some kind of wound. So there’s a story that goes with every scar.

Mountain Crucifix We are not alone in our scars. Jesus was wounded and scarred too. His scars came from a frightening story of betrayal, rejection, suffering and death.

But God wrote a wonderful end to the story of Jesus’ scars. The end of the story transcends the pain and injustice. It tells a story of hope that I need, and I believe you do too.

Dan Stevers has beautifully woven together a story of our scars and those of Jesus. Then he reminds us God’s transforming work that turns suffering and pain into new life, new hope and a reason for joy.
