From now on let no one cause trouble for me, for I bear on my body the brand-marks of Jesus.
~Apostle Paul | Galatians 6:17 | NASB
What apostle Paul is saying here is that all the beatings, the boiling, and imprisonment that he has endured was for the sake of Christ. No evil or hurtful thing will set him back in delivering the message of hope and love through Christ the Redeemer.
The scars remain as a reminder of what he used to do, and the person he used to be…nothing. But when he answered the call on that dark and lonely road to Damascus his life started!
Do you remember your life before Christ?
Does your body bear the brand-marks of Jesus?
They may not be visible to the eye, but the things you’ve been through have made their mark on your spirit- man. God knows. The Holy Spirit recognizes them and will help you use them for a testimony like no one else.
Be branded for Christ. Branded for life.
