Scripture: Galatians 6:17 From now on, don’t let anyone trouble me with these things. For I bear on my body the scars that show I belong to Jesus. (NLT)
Nugget: The Apostle Paul was reflecting on the things he experienced for his faith in this scripture; he was reflecting on the struggles & challenges he endured. Although the things he experienced & endured were challenging, what Paul endured showed his faith in Jesus—it showed he belonged to Jesus.
This scripture makes me reflect on the term “battle scars”. We’ve all experienced things that leave us with battles scars, memories, & pains of what occurred. However, enduring these things produce something in us that should strengthen our faith & connection with God. I can now view these “battle scars” as scars that show that I belong to Jesus & am an overcomer! Wow, thanking God for discernment. We are marked with the scars of Jesus.
