The Nail Scarred Hands of Jesus
Are Unselfish Hands
John 13:3-5 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
Mark 1:40-42 And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.
Mark 9:17-27 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit; When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him. And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead. But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.
The Power of the Holy Spirit
The Finger of God
"And He gave unto Moses, when He had made an end of communing with him upon Mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God." Exouds 31:18
"Then was part of the hand sent from Him; and this writing was written. . ." Daniel 5:24
The word hand in this Scripture is 3028H and means power. The part of the hand that has power is the finger of God. The power of God is in the Holy Spirit.

"But ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you. . ." Acts 1:8
"But if I with the finger (the power of the Holy Spirit) of God cast out devils, no doubt the Kingdom of God is come upon you." Luke 11:20
The Five Fold Hand Ministry of Ministry
"Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he cast himself down upon the earth, and put his face between his knees, and said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea. And he went up, and looked, and siad, There is nothing. And he said, God again seven times. And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said,
Behold! There ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man's hand." I Kings 18:42-44
And He (Jesus) gave some, apostles; and some, prophets, and some, evangelists; and some, pastors, and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ. Ephesians 4:13-14
The Helping Hands of Aaron and Hur to hold up Moses' hand in the day of battle
A church opened a nursery where children could be left during Sunday worship services. It didn't last long because most parents preferred to have their kids with them in the sanctuary - - along with their brothers, sisters, and grandparents. In this church families - - sometimes as many as four generations - - believe in being and staying together. On a typical Sunday morning a teenage girl holds a toddler in her arms, keeping the baby quiet while her mother serves as an usher. A grandmother looks up a Scripture passage and shares it with the youngster sitting next to her. In the choir whole families sing together - - in some cases all three generations. During the week young and old attend family nights at the church for Bible Study. And periodically there's one very unusual class for young people (which might well explain why there's no need for a nursery). It's a class in etiquette - - proper manners for worshiping in God's house! Even the church's building and grounds are maintained by families working together. What a blessing to hear of a church where firm family foundations are being built together. Taken from Guideposts, February 1986
