"Hope and healing at every port.
In the poorest parts of Africa, children suffer and die from treatable causes"
Meticulously refashioning the once 'scurvy' limbs of a child,
Artful removing the blinding cataracts of a mother and perfecting the face that once held a globular facial tumour;
I see hope there.
Faith and virtue extend in the hands of the medical crew to the needy and poor after long waits for help.
A lame man now walks unaided.
I see hope in his eyes.
Mercy travels to many ports reconstructing body organs.
Performing life-saving surgery in lands with no resources, and saving lives while transforming nations.
I see hope in that ministry.
Likewise, Messiah came as a 'Mercy ship' two thousand years ago.
A sinless perfect Holy God who gave up kingship for a time; to suffer a shameful death on His earth.
Our hope now lies on a cross.
By meticulously and artfully removing all our sin, Our Father kept His promise*
His Kingdom came; reclaiming His lost inheritance.
We now have Hope and it's Him! Our Lord Jesus Christ!
*Hebrews 16: 15 -16
