Have you thought about how often Jesus’ hands are referred to?
He used His hands to heal.
Jesus often touched those He healed (Matthew 8:14-15; Mark 6:2, 5; 7:32-35; 8:23-25; Luke 4:40; 13:13).
A leper begged to be healed. “Moved with compassion, Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, ‘I am willing; be cleansed’” (Mark 1:40-41).
He used His hands to bless.
When children were brought to Him, “He took them in His arms and began blessing them, laying His hands on them” (Mark 10:16).
He used His hands to save.
After His resurrection He showed His incredulous disciples His nail-scarred hands (Luke 24:36-40; John 20:20, 25, 27).
How can we best use our hands to serve Him and bless others (Ephesians 5:28; 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12)?
