My song this Easter Sunday is ‘One Pair of Hands’. This song was composed by Carroll Roberson (born July 17, 1955). He is an evangelist, gospel singer-songwriter, and author. He founder and president of ‘Carroll Roberson Ministries’ in Ripley, Mississippi.
Roberson was born July 17, 1955, in Ripley, Mississippi. He read the Bible growing up but did not surrender his life to Christ until 1983. One year later, he was diagnosed with a cancerous growth on his throat. With no promise that he would be able to talk anymore, Roberson underwent thyroid surgery and was able to sing again within three weeks. Shortly after, Roberson devoted himself to full-time ministry. After serving as Minister of a Baptist church in his hometown for two years, Roberson organized ‘Carroll Roberson Ministries’ with a board of directors and went into full-time evangelism with his office stationed in his hometown of Ripley. Since 1987, he has been preaching at revivals and crusades and singing his music to millions of people around the world.
Carroll has recorded more than twenty-five albums and written over one hundred songs. He also hosts his own television program and has led several tours to Israel with his wife Donna.
This song is ideally suitable for Easter Sunday as it essentially tells the story of Creation that God achieved with ‘One Pair of Hands’. If you believe in the Easter Message that the crucified Christ died on the Cross to save mankind and then three days later, he rose from the dead and instructed his apostles to go out and minister his Word to the world, You will never walk alone. You will be blessed with the love of Christ and crowned with his eternal compassion. Your heart will forever remain open, your mind will never be closed, your deeds will never be dishonorable, and your intent will always be wholesome and good.
In seven days, God created the heavens and the earth. He filled it with birds of the air, animals of the land and fish of the seas. He then gave life to the underworld and its creeping inhabitants. Then, He created all plant life and form of vegetation. When He had done all this, He then gave life to His most beautiful creation of all; you. It is you who are the living embodiment of God’s love.
After God had created the earth, He placed you on it and set it spinning in perfect harmony on an axis of love. God may have set the earth spinning on an axis of love, but through the free will God granted you to both do right and wrong, and good and bad, you possess the means which enables you to keep the world turning in perpetual motion. It is your love alone which possesses such power; the love expressed between one person to another which makes the world go around! Only through choosing right from wrong and doing good instead of bad can you keep the world turning on its axis of love.
Take one moment out of your life today and hold up your hands before your eyes. Look at your hands and know that what you do with these hands is essentially what you do with your life. You can use them to destroy or to build, to welcome or to fend away, to caress or to crush, to stroke or to strangle, to create or collapse, to love or loathe! The choice is yours alone to make. Please make the right one and become the good person your Creator intended you to be. Sheila and I wish you all a very happy Easter and God bless.
Love and peace Bill xxx
