Scarred — for eternity
If God raised Jesus from the dead, why didn’t God fix him up? Why scars? Why the print of nails that you could feel with your fingers? Can it be that the gospel ... is saying to us in our waiting: “You will not see Jesus Christ unless you see the wounds”? Somehow we must understand that the resurrected Christ is forever the wounded Christ. Living, but never fixed up. Not bound by death, yet scarred for eternity.
The deaf have a sign for Jesus. Quickly they make this sign many times during their worship: the middle finger of each hand is placed into the palm of the other. Jesus, the one with wounded hands. And when they touch the place, they remember. They hear the name in their own flesh.
He is Risen!!
W.E. Sangster (1900-1960), a well-known pastor in England, contracted a progressive, incurable muscle disease. He lost the ability to move his legs, and eventually his voice faded away. Because Sangster wanted to continue serving God even though he could no longer preach, he became a prolific writer and organized prayer cells throughout England.
On Easter morning, shortly before his death, Sangster wrote a note to his daughter in an unsteady hand. “It is terrible to wake up on Easter morning and have no voice to shout, ‘He is risen!’” he wrote. “But it would be still more terrible to have a voice and not want to shout.”
