A Badge Of Honor

A Badge of Honor

They bear the scars of Jesus,
They bear Christ’s holy scars,
They wear them on their bodies 
And in their suffering hearts.

They suffer for Christ’s glory,
They share His holy pain,
His scars their badge of honor
Though others call it shame...

In their humble weakness 
Christ displays His strength;
In them He rises yet alive
Through His almighty grace.

The sick and suffering, poor, oppressed
Bring glory to the Lord,
When they praise Him in their pain
Despite their vicious storms...

They bear the scars of Jesus,
They bear His holy scars,
They’ll become a crown of gold 
He’ll place upon their heart...

Someday He will look at them,
He’ll look at them and say,
“Well done my little one 
You honored Me each day,
With the life I gave to you
To worship Me and praise;
Now come live in Paradise 
And be with Me always,

In Jesus’ name, amen.

Scriptures for Meditation

“ “On my own body are scars that prove I belong to Christ Jesus...” ~ Galatians‬ ‭6:17‬ ‭CEV‬‬

“God's Spirit makes us sure that we are His children.
 His Spirit lets us know that together with Christ 
we will be given what God has promised. 

We will also share in the glory of Christ, 
because we have suffered with Him.
 I am sure what we are suffering now 
cannot compare with the glory 
that will be shown to us.” 
~ ‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:16-18‬ ‭CEV‬‬

“For you have been granted [the privilege] for Christ’s sake, 
not only to believe and confidently trust in Him,
 but also to suffer for His sake, 
[and so you are] experiencing the same [kind of] conflict 
which you saw me endure, 
and which you hear to be mine now.”
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭1:29-30‬ ‭AMP‬‬

“...but Christ has said to me, 
“My grace is sufficient for you
 [My lovingkindness and My mercy are more than enough—
always available—regardless of the situation]; 
for [My] power is being perfected 
[and is completed and shows itself most effectively] in [your] weakness.” 

Therefore, I will all the more gladly 
boast in my weaknesses, 
so that the power of Christ 
[may completely enfold me and] may dwell in me.

 So I am well pleased with weaknesses, 
with insults, with distresses, 
with persecutions, 
and with difficulties, 
for the sake of Christ; 
for when I am weak [in human strength], 
then I am strong 
[truly able, truly powerful,
 truly drawing from God’s strength].”
‭‭~2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:9-10‬ ‭AMP‬‬
