Often times we ask God, "Lord Take The Pain Away." God did promise to take the pain away once we reached glory not here on earth. I know perhaps you have been told the contrary only to find that the pain continues to resurface! Here is why because often times people fail to face the reality that scars are real! Often times because we have the wrong image of the Cross! You see at the cross where I first saw the light by the way Jesus Christ did the redemptive work that give us all an opportunity to be in right relationship with the Most High God.
You know the story they put a crown of thorns on his head, pierce him in the side, they nailed his hands and feet to the Cross. He died and was resurrected on the third day according to the scriptures. Here is what we often tend to overlook the crucifixion was the most excruciating pain that any man has ever endured and in fact science suggest that no man could have possibly endure. Jesus Christ when he was raised from dead still had the scars from the pain he endured!!
In my Pastor Edwards voice, "Come a little closer to me." Resurrection Wounds is what Christ had! A painful reminder of the love sacrifice he made for you and I. What does that mean? Here it is! You have scars and Resurrection Wounds also from your previous life before Christ and the Resurrection Wounds after you came into the knowledge of the truth. God never promise that there wouldn't be pain but God did promise to be there with you through the pain! God like he gave Christ gives you the power to endure the pain! I gotta quit now because i gotta praise and I gotta get out.
