I was reminded of our LORD and Savior as described in Isaiah 53
But he was wounded for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his stripes we are healed
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned—every one—to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
yet he opened not his mouth;
like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,
and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
so he opened not his mouth. (Isaiah 53:5-7 ESV)
At the conclusion as we lifted the patients off the bed, I repeated in my mediocre spanish...Dios le bendiga. God bless you. To which many replied .... Gracias a Dios. Thanks be to God.
They were so right. Thanks and glory be to God. Who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms. Who put aside his heavenly glory to take on flesh and became obedient to death, even death on a cross. Thanks be to Him for even giving us a reason to come down here to the Dominican Republic. For giving us a gift we can share that is far greater an any medical care--God's grace in Jesus Christ. Our sight in this life will fail, but God our Father opens eyes for eternity.
Dios le bendiga -- God bless you.
