SCAR WARS part 4

Here is the outline to the final message in our series called Scar Wars.

SCAR WARS
Pastor Steve Lummer

Introduction:
The wounds of our nation are still very evident and painful from the 9/11 tragedy even after nine years.

“So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it.” John 20:25 (NIV)

JESUS SCARS

1. JESUS SCARS SERVE AS PROOF.
“He showed them his hands and his feet.”—Luke 24:40.

That he went into battle for us.            That he cares for us     That he was not defeated by death.

2. JESUS SCARS SHOW US THE HUMAN AND DIVINE NATURE OF GOD.
A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” 28 Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”

3. JESUS SCARS SHOW US HOW GOD CAN RELATE TO OUR PAIN.
For we do not have a high priest incapable of sympathizing with our weaknesses, but one who has been tempted in every way just as we are, yet without sin. Hebrews 4:15

OUR SCARS

From now on, don’t let anyone trouble me with these things. For I bear on my body the scars that show I belong to Jesus.  Galations 6:17 NLT

WE ARE FRAGILE

WE MAKE MISTAKES

WE ALL HAVE A STORY

WE HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON WITH EVERYONE.
