Reach out your hand and put it into My side. Stop doubting and believe. John 20:27

One detail in the Easter story has always intrigued me. Why did Jesus keep the scars from His crucifixion? After He appeared to the apostles, He told Thomas "to put his hand into His side...and to stop doubting and believe." Presumably He could have had any resurrected body He wanted, and yet He chose one identifiable mainly by scars that could be seen and touched. Why?

I believe the story of Easter would be incomplete without those scars on the hands, the feet, and the side of Jesus. Human beings dream of pearly straight teeth, wrinkle-free skin and ideal body shapes. We dream of an unnatural state: the perfect body. But for Jesus, being confined in a skeleton and human skin was the unnatural state. The scars are a permanent reminder of His days of confinement and suffering on our planet.

From the perspective of heaven, those scars represent a very horrible, yet great event. This horrible yet great event also allows us to have a horrible or great destiny. It will be horrible if we choose to go our own way...but great if we believe and become a follower of Jesus Christ!

Even that event, though, turned into a memory. Because of Easter, we can hope that the tears we shed, the struggles we endure, the emotional pain, the heartache over this trouble-filled life, lost friends and loved ones—all these will become memories just like Jesus’ scars. Scars never completely go away, but neither do they hurt any longer. If we believe and become followers of Christ we will eventually get re-created bodies and a re-created heaven and earth. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Rev. 21:4.

Insight: Christ’s resurrection is the guarantee of our own resurrection. Let's remember His scars for our new beginning!

Reader's Prayer: Thank You, Lord, for the hope that the resurrection of Jesus brings—for now and for eternity. I put my trust in You today because I want to have a great destiny; eternal life in heaven with You! In Jesus' Name, Amen.

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:11-12 cheers
