The Hands of Jesus

raised hands

During the war a church in Strasburg, Germany, was totally destroyed; but a statue of Christ which stood by the altar was almost unharmed. Only the hands of the statue were missing. When the church was rebuilt, a famous sculptor offered to make new hands; but, after considering the matter, the members decided to let it stand as it was—without hands. “For,” they said, “Christ has no hands but our hands to do His work on earth. If we don’t feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, entertain the stranger, visit the imprisoned, and clothe the naked, who will?” Christ is depending on us to do the very things which He did while upon earth. My friend, if the gospel we preach does not have a social application, if it will not work effectively in the work-a-day world, then it is not the Gospel of Christ.

Prayer for the day

I look at my hands, Lord Jesus, and ask You to use them this day. Make me conscious of the needs of those who hurt.

    God Bless Rev. Billy and Rev Franklin Graham and the entire family and staff that carry on this wondrous miraculous blessed ministry. I remember so many of Rev.Graham’s sermons during the many tours as my mother watched all that she could and insisted we children watch with her. Very different from the way today’s parents are involved with their children’s learning of the gospel….alot of children are so lost….because parents are too busy or lost themselves. I will continue pray for your ministry and a great revival in our nation. God Bless

    Lord, when I contemplate all the good works, all the giving, helping, healing and loving done in Your name, through Your Spirit, I am overwhelmed with thy glory. When I think of all those who still have suffered, I hold out hope that we all will continue to reach out to be there for those who need You, and us, Your servants. Thank You for sending thy Son Jesus, to show us thy way and thy will. Please guide and help us always as we strive to serve others, whether it be their physical or spiritual needs. Amen.
