Back during WW2, there was a statue that had been bombed in Germany. Locals were trying to repair the statue and prepare it so that it could be on display. And as they began to repair the statue they could not find the hands that went on it. This statue was a picture of Jesus with his arms outstretched and down below the statue were these words. “Come unto me” They looked everywhere for the hands but they could not find them to finish the sculpture. They did not know what to do since it was a very prominent statue. So someone got an idea and this is what they did; they left the arms off the statue and they changed the sign underneath it “He has no hands but your hands” What a powerful picture! The only Jesus that people will see is the one who lives in His body of believers; the Church!The Church is called to be Jesus' hands on earth. Click To Tweet

John 14:12 (NKJV)
Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
Acts 4:29-30 (NKJV)
Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.
Romans 8:21-23 (NKJV)
Because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.
