Wounds Into Scars


If you have ever been in an accident or sustained an injury, then you’ve likely observed your wounds heal over time and eventually turn into scars. Those scars become reminders of your initial injury and implore you to move ahead.

The same is true for the spiritual woulds we suffer. They, too, will heal and be replaced with scars that remind us of a time when we were disobedient and struggling Christians.

Once we have spiritual scars, we are better able to share with others in our circles of influence what we’ve learned in the healing process. As Christians who have made mistakes and been redeemed and forgiven, it’s our spiritual responsibility to show our friends and loved ones how to turn their wounds into scars.
