Jesus - The Best Carpenter of All Time

Pin It


By Lizzie Ducking
The works of a carpenter is exquisite especially a good one because he is able to make something out of what appear to be nothing. He is able to fix what we might think is totally destroyed or unfix-able.


The splendid of some of these structures are magnificent, we stand in awe of it, and no doubt, we can see that the one who designed it was and is truly gifted.


However, there is a greater carpenter than all the carpenters in the world. He is the only one who can rebuild the soul and His name is Jesus. He can take the worst in us and make it beautiful. He is able to take our brokenness and make us complete again.



Isaiah 61:1-3 says the spirit of the Lord God is upon me because the Lord has anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor. He has sent me to heal the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord and the day of vengeance of our God. To comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, that they may be called trees of righteousness. The planting of the Lord that He may be glorified. Jesus is the one whom this passage of scripture is speaking about and he is able to restore us in every way that we are in need of restoring.



He has given us the good news of the Gospel so that we might have hope of an eternal life. He heals the broken hearted. Man can hurt us so deeply that it might seem like there is no end to our pain but Jesus can heal the pain because He can fix anything that is broken.





He has proclaimed liberty to the captive. Tradition can bind us to the point that we are not able to worship the Lord but Jesus has set us free. He said whom the Son set free is free indeed.



He can heal our bodies of sicknesses and diseases that have bound us. He heals our mind of weakness by giving us a sound and strong mind.



He restores to us what the devil has stolen, killed or destroyed and returns us to our acceptable place in God. He proclaims the acceptable year of the Lord and that time is now; if anyone would hear His voice and harden not his heart, he can be saved. It does not matter where we are because the Lord can touch our heart anywhere; all He need is an open heart.



He has let us know that there is a day of vengeance of God. It is a warning to us to get our life in order before that great day comes.


He comforts us when we mourn by giving us His peace that the world cannot give and for the undesirable things in our life, He can turn it into something beautiful.


We can praise Him when we have a heavy heart and He will lift our spirit to make us joyful again.


We can see magnificent works of carpenters but one day all that beauty will pass away but the work that Jesus does inside of us will never pass away.


God said that our righteousness is as filthy rags. It is not fit for the kingdom of God but when the carpenter hand touches us, all our filth is cleansed and we are restored.


We can take and old house, remodel it and make it beautiful. This is what Jesus does inside of us. He remodels our old self completely and makes us new and beautiful. He is the greatest carpenter that ever was or will ever be.
