October 16, 2016 - Jesus’ Hands - John 20:24-25

posted Oct 22, 2016, 1:00 PM by Grant Garber
  1. Jesus’ hands were labor-worn hands.
    • The ancient attitude toward manual labor was that they despised it. It was the occupation of slaves. Some of that pagan spirit has come down to the modern world.
    • Think of the dignity of human labor. See it in the labor-worn hands of Jesus.
  2. Jesus’ hands were tender hands.
    • A hand can be tender without being soft.
  3. Jesus’ hands were pierced hands.
    • The hardest part of suffering for Christians is the dark hour when they are tempted to believe that God is not with them in it.
    • Have you ever wanted a symbol for sin? That nail would serve as well as anything.
    • That is what sin always does. It nails the hand of God.
    • If we could pull that nail out what would the hand do? It would move out instantly to serve and bless.
    • In this world today, God has no hands but those of committed followers who want to give their hands to Him.
“Give of your hands to serve and your hearts to love.”
~ Mother Teresa
