By Request, ‘He Still Has the Scars’

This is another worship song suggested by Erlene–He Still Has the Scars, by Carroll Roberson.

I find the crucifixion of Our Lord Jesus Christ almost too horrible to contemplate. I’ve lived all my life in the modern United States: we don’t get to see public executions, extravagant and gory punishments. In fact, it’s against the law in our country, per the Eighth Amendment. So I have to imagine the crucifixion, and it’s not easy.

Add to that the fact that Jesus Christ was innocent: without sin: He had done only good, all throughout his ministry: and He spoke the truth. Even Pilate knew that Jesus was innocent.

“His blood be upon us and our children,” cried the crowd.

“We have no king but Caesar,” cried the crowd.

But the Lord lives, and has obtained forgiveness of sins and eternal life for all who believe in Him. And He still has the scars.

  1. This song brings tears to my eyes. The physical pain is unimaginable, but think of the agony He suffered in the Garden as He was having all the billions of sins piled upon His sinless person, in order to take it all to the cross to be paid for. That really brings tears always. And all we have to give to Him is our love and trust. It is all He asks of us. What an awesome God.
