“But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
“Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” 1 John 4:11
Gracie Rosenberger sat in the waiting room welcoming the West African patients.
She was part of a medical mission helping poor and rich alike who waited for artificial limbs.
As a double-amputee, Gracie knows the loss of a limb can hinder relationships.
But even Gracie’s smile and laughter froze upon seeing Mary’s hand extended to hers.
Mary was missing fingers and her right leg -the results of Leprosy.
As Mary looked at Gracie, her eyes questioned, “Am I welcome, too?”
Taking Mary’s disfigured hand; Gracie broke into an even bigger, warmer smile.
She was reminded how Christ had welcomed HER sinful, diseased and maimed soul into HIS family.
Nothing could stop her from sharing the warm embrace of Jesus Christ.
Touching the untouchable becomes a privilege, friend,
when you recall how Christ reached out to you.
