Broken Bones 8/15/10
The teachings of the person of Jesus Christ is a bottomless well. How true His words to the Samaritan woman that those who drink of Him shall never thirst. Allegorically He brings eternal revelation by His temporal bodily display. One thing true about His body was no broke bones. As I pondered my 36 years in Christ and my observations of others I realized that His corporal body never suffers broken bones either. Now the sufferings of the Lord were many and His children suffer no less. But this structural soundness through all suffering remains a constant truth. Sure there are bruises, wounds, tears, piercing, and heartaches abound, but there remains an unbroken strength. I have never seen any saint who trusted the Lord in faith broken by any circumstance no matter how cruel. Somehow joy is good for the bones. Has He also said smoking flax He will not quench and a bruised reed He will not break. We should take courage under the weight of our burdens that the strength of our being shall never be broken. The body of Christ shall always be a rigid resistance toward evil and have the strength to walk upright in His holy commands.
