God led Noah to build an ark in order to carry one family safely upon the waters of the great Flood and deliver mankind from utter destruction . Wood and nails said He; build Me an ark of wood and nails.
God's Son Jesus was a carpenter. He fashioned many things for many people. He made them happy, using His skilled hands- and wood and nails, wood and nails.
One windy, cruel day, on Golgotha, the place of the skull, the Lord lay back upon a wooden cross, to which His enemies nailed Him. He did not resist or curse against the agony and torture. He was not surprised. This, after all, was His plan, His mission all along:
To win eternal salvation for all those who would believe in Him, as He lay a-dying against wood and nails, wood and nails!
Now when He rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons. She went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned and wept. And when they heard that He was alive, and had been seen by her, they did not believe.
After that, He appeared in another form to two of them as they walked and went into the country. And they went and told it to the rest, but they did not believe them either.
Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen.
And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. And He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned," (Mark 16:9-16).
Oh, blessed wood and nails; blessed wood and nails, which braced that sacred form, which bore the Savior of the world!
And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself, (John 12:32).
Wood and nails; wood and nails. Amen
