What It Really Means To Be The Hands of Jesus

February 21

“And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.”

>Genesis 12:2

At the start of World War II, there was a town in Europe that had a statue of Jesus Christ in the middle of it. During the war, however, that statue was destroyed. When the fighting was over and the town was being rebuilt, they were able to piece the statue back together – all except for the hands.

So one official in the town said, “Let’s commission someone to refashion the hands on the statue.” But someone else had the idea to leave the statue as it was and add an inscription that said, “His hands are our hands.”

Our nation has been indescribably blessed by God. I don’t know of another time in the history of the world when the church had the resources it has today. And with those resources comes the amazing responsibility and privilege of using those resources to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ.

Christian, let’s seize the day! Let’s allow God to use us and all of our vitality, our unity, and our resources to make an impact like never before. Let’s be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ!

BE THE HANDS AND FEET OF JESUS BY USING THE RESOURCES HE’S GIVEN YOU TO MAKE A KINGDOM IMPACT!

About PowerPoint

About Jack Graham

PowerPoint Ministries is the radio and television broadcast ministry of Dr. Jack Graham in Plano, Texas. Dr. Graham is the pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, one of the nation's largest, most dynamic congregations.

When Dr. Graham came to Prestonwood in 1989, the 8,000-member congregation responded enthusiastically to his straightforward message and powerful preaching style. He challenged the Prestonwood family with a vision for a larger outreach, and in 1999, the church moved from its North Dallas location to a new 7,500-seat auditorium in west Plano.

Thriving with more than 33,000 members, Prestonwood continues to grow with seven weekend worship services, four midweek services, about 300 Bible Fellowship classes for all ages, and multiple outreach and community ministries that reach thousands. In 2006, the church added a second location, the North Campus, in a burgeoning area 20 miles north of Plano. And in 2011, Prestonwood returned to its roots—beginning its third location, the Dallas Campus, about two from miles from its original location.

Dr. Graham has served two terms as president of the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest American Protestant denomination, with 16 million members and as president of the SBC Pastor’s Conference.

He is a noted author of numerous books, including You Can Make a Difference, Lessons from the Heart, A Hope and a Future, Life According to Jesus, Are you Fit for Life? and Powering Up. Courageous Parenting, co-authored by his wife, Deb, is based on their experiences as parents. Dr. Graham’s passionate, biblical teaching is also seen and heard across the country and throughout the world on PowerPoint Ministries. Through broadcasts, online sermons and e-mail messages, he addresses relevant, everyday issues that are prevalent in our culture and that strike a chord with audiences worldwide.

Dr. Graham was ordained to the Gospel ministry in 1970, and has a master of divinity degree with honors and a doctor of ministry degree in Church and Proclamation from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
