“Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have” (Luke 24:39).
The only scars in heaven will be those that belong to my Savior. The two in His hands will forever remind me that no work of mine could ever attain the perfect righteousness that God demanded and the Lord Jesus provided. The two in His feet will endlessly call to mind that I could not of my own will and doing come to Him that I might have life. The scar on His brow will perpetually mark Him to be the King of all kings, who was wounded for me. Yet it is the scar in His side that I will adhere to and admire the most, for that is the scar that assures me that I will, by His grace, forever be next to Him. The only scars in heaven will be the ones that were inflicted on Him for me, for all mine will be gone! Like my old friend Ed Hale once wrote, “I will be looking for scars up in heaven.”
