We Are Scarred for Life in Jesus

Jesus was predestined as the ultimate Sin-Sacrifice
before the beginning of time.
Thus, Jesus Christ was scarred for life:
Your life, My life- ALL MANKIND!

Enduring intense excruciating pain,
Christ was rejected, despised and betrayed.
Blood shed profusely from His savagely tortured flesh
while, “Forgive them,” is what He prayed.

He was pierced for our transgressions
and bruised for our iniquities.
By His wounds, we were healed and made whole;
and by His punishment we were bought peace.

His intercessory love is to be modeled;
with Christ’s sufferings, we must identify.
Enduring our scars produce godly growth, grace and glory;
But, through Christ’s scars we've been justified.

Jesus Christ was scarred for life,
your life, my life, all of mankind.
In Christ, we are more than conquerors,
transformed by the renewing of our minds.


After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
and he will bear their iniquities.” – Isaiah 53:11

Dearest Darkproxy, you are welcomed to think and visualize Jesus' appearance in anyway that works for you.

It's more about His matchless, unconditional and immeasurable love for us, than His looks.

Be blessed,
