I HAVE THE PEACE
A friend visited an elderly woman badly crippled by arthritis. When asked, “Do you suffer much?” she responded, “Yes, but there is no nail here,” and she pointed to her hand. “He had the nails, I have the peace.” She pointed to her head. “There are no thorns here. He had the thorns, I have the peace.” She touched her side, “There is no spear here. He had the spear, I have the peace.” That is what the atonement of Jesus Christ means for us — He gave of himself so that we might have the peace. As told by Ralph Turnbull in If I Only Had One Sermon To Preach.
