Scars serve many purposes.
Scars remind you of your sins and those souls you destroyed and hurt.
Scars reflect the innocent blood you shed as you used people for your own selfish gain and deceived them.
Scars can also remind you of how you abused God’s children and His Word by how you wasted your life and that of others.
Scars can also remind you of the lies you told to God, others and yourself in your pursuits of the flesh and materialistic gains.
They cover a wound but true healing comes of the wound comes from submission to God’s Word and following it so that He heals them from the inside out. We only try to conceal them by acting like we didn’t do anything wrong and forging ahead in our lives never reconciling with those who you hurt which does not align with The Word!
Yes! Scars serve many a purpose.
Godly men know how Jesus taught us to deal with them. The ungodly and babes in Christ do not, so they choose to not address them according to His Word.
Here’s a tip! Godly men know the Word, practice it and put into action the steps required of them by God when they have aught with others — seek forgiveness, make recompense and reconcile. When those things are done your scars begin to disappear and you sin less. Acting as if you don’t have to follow God’s Word is again an abuse of His Love and Grace.
When flesh-directed men seek their own cures and remedies and skirt around God’s guidance and directives, disaster follows of their own making! Those scars never heal truly because you still aren’t doing what The Word requires of you!
God hates those who bear false witness or lie— stop it and seek forgiveness from those whom you took advantage of with your lies!
God said do not commit adultery— stop it and seek forgiveness from your spouse.
God says the man who divorces his wife murders her—Whoever divorces his wife, except on the grounds of porneia (sexual immorality), makes her an adulteress; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.”(Matthew 5:31-32)
The Pharisees question Jesus, saying: “Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for any cause?” And Jesus answers by attributing that command to their “hardness of heart” (Mark 10:5) and appealing to the order of creation found in Genesis, concluding that man and woman are not two but one (10:8), and that what God has joined humans should not separate (10:9).
The disciples go on in Matthew to say to Jesus, “If this is the situation between a husband and wife, it is better not to marry.” And Jesus replied, “Not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given. For there are eunuchs who were born that way, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by others—and there are those who choose to live like eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.” In other words, if you are truly living by God’s Word, you will follow it and not make light of it or Cherry-pick what scriptures you will live by because by ignoring your sin by acting as if you don’t have to atone for it, you live by the flesh and not by God’s Word.
When we write, blog, share, or speak about The Gospel or give or write our testimonies make sure that your own life reflects what you share with others. Never give advice based on your ideations, especially when they Do Not align with God’s.
