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.

How do you know if you’re helping people or if they’re taking advantage of you? Read Billy Graham’s response.

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.

    Every Christian has a role to play in the Body of Christ. Take that gift and use it to its fullest. May all the honour and praise and glory go to our Heavenly Father.
