Scarification December 5, 2018

Scarification, is a form of extreme and permanent body modification, in which one’s skin is cut, etched, burned or branded into a design to create an inkless tattoo-like scar. It is often done to gain status, or for aesthetic reasons. But more serious than physical scarring are the scars within. Many suffer from rejection, abuse, bullying or other forms of emotional trauma. The only permanent solution to this inward hurting is Jesus Christ. He was “a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.” He understands our scars. Bill Gaither’s song describes what happens when Jesus comes into our lives. “Something beautiful, something good. All my confusion, He understood. All I had to offer Him was brokenness and strife, but He made something beautiful of my life.”
