Just Look at My Hands

Who his own
self bare our
 sins in his own body on the tree,
that we, being
dead to sins,
should live unto
by whose stripes
ye were healed.
I Peter 2:24

Well, as I sit here waiting for yet another load of clothes to wash, I am extremely thankful for the fact that our washer/pipe problem has been fixed!  Yee-HAW!  (can you believe I'm actually EXCITED to be able to do laundry again?  Me neither!  But, as they say, "this (happy-to-do-laundry-feeling) TOO shall pass!")  LOL

If you haven't read yesterday's blog, you may want to read it, or at least the "Breaking News" Part at the very end.  Today's blog picks up from that.  

What do you think when you read the part that said:  Local 'Plumber and Son, Co.' left with a final statement: "It's just a shock that anything could GO DOWN!"  Son added, "Yeah, when my dad said it was clogged with junk, he was NOT KIDDING! Just look at my hands!"   As soon as I read that the Holy Spirit opened my eyes!   "LOOK, Tammi!~~~'the SON added.....'LOOK AT MY HANDS!'  Did you catch that?"   I thought of Jesus, God's only uniquely born Son.    I could imagine, our clogged main pipeline as a spiritual lesson. 

Our hearts are totally clogged.  Not with cholesterol. (or at least I HOPE they aren't.)  But our SPIRITUAL hearts are clogged by sin.  Of course water could not flow through our clogged pipes.  Same with us---if we are clogged up by sin---the Living Water can not flow through us.   So, what did our Father have to do?   Before the foundation of time, He decided, along with the Son, to "go fix their problem."   [Oh...I think you can tell where THIS one's going too, can't you?! :o)  ]   

"Yes, Son, they have a problem.   We are the only One Who can fix this."   Now, in my particular case, my husband directed our son in what needed to be done, what tools to get, etc.   The planner was the dad.  The son followed through.   But is it not amazing that my little boy would say "Mom...Dad was NOT KIDDING when he said the pipe was clogged up with junk!  JUST LOOK AT MY HANDS!" ? 
 Oh my word. P R I C E L E S S!     

  • Clogged Pipes~~a few $ Measly Dollars $
  • Spiritual Lesson to appreciate the Heavenly work of the Son of God---P R I C E L E S S!   

Our Lord and Savior, the Holy Son of God, came to earth....did the work FOR US.  .   . made a way for the Living Water to flow through us.   Now...today, did I turn on the water in my house and let it flow?????????????   You better believe it!    In fact, laundry's going, even as we "speak."  But what good would all that work have been IF I had not chosen to take FULL ADVANTAGE OF IT!?!?!?    I mean, after all, the Son has said, "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.."And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet." (Luke 24: 39, 40)

TODAY, behold the Hands and Feet of our Savior.  He's reaching out to Y O U.  What can He do for you?  He's already done the major work ... all you have to do is accept what He has done, by believing in HIM, receiving Him as your Savior, and repenting of your sin---your clogged "spiritual heart" artery.   Note:  That said Repenting, not REPEATING of your sins.   In order to keep from REPEATING your sinsLet His Living Water flow FREELY through you, so that you can in turn, be a blessing to someone else...by "recommending the BEST SPIRITUAL FATHER/SON PLUMBER" around!  And THE BEST PART IS-- (drum roll). . .
He's already PAID for it!  IN FULL, with a 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE!
All you have to do is "Just look at His hands."
Thank You Father for seeing a desperate need in our lives. . . for reaching out and coming DOWN to us.  TO get all DIRTY AND GRIMY, completely COVERED by our nasty, yucky sin!   Thank You, dear sweet Son of God, Jesus, for being my Savior...I pray if there is anyone out there suffering from clogged arteries in their spiritual heart, please cause a BIG BACK UP somewhere, so they'll KNOW they need to seek help.  I can personally guarantee that YOU ARE THE BEST!   Why should they settle for less?  Dear Holy Spirit, flow freely through me....and when there's a small build-up, help me remember to CALL ON THE Heavenly Plumber to do a follow-up exam!  Thank You for letting a sweet little boy speak those five simple words, 'Just look at my hands' today.  And Thank You for reminding me of the NASTY but NECESSARY work YOU DID FOR ME and for all the world around me!   I know You depend on the WORD OF MOUTH recommendations---so give me courage to spread the Word of Your Wonderful Cleansing, HEART OPENING,
In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen.  
And the Father replied....."This is my beloved Son,
in whom I am well pleased."  Matthew 3:17
