By Request, ‘Glory’

Requested by Erlene, Glory, by Carroll Roberson, from his Christmas album.

Now, let’s see if we can push another hymn into the lead with more than 25 views…

By Request, ‘Christmas is Believing’

Okay, we’re back in the Christmas Carol Contest, and we’ll start with this song requested by Erlene: Christmas is Believing, by Carroll Roberson. Beautiful!

By Request, ‘Wise Men Follow Him’

Erlene gets the Christmas Carol Contest rolling with this request for Wise Men Follow Him, by Carroll Roberson. Does anybody recognize the movie clips?

By Request, ‘Faith Unlocks the Door’

Requested by Erlene, Carroll Roberson sings Faith Unlocks the Door. “Prayer is the key to Heaven, but faith unlocks the door.” I think in this evil age we all have to pray harder–and may God strengthen our faith.

By Request, ‘I Believe in Christmas’

Requested by Erlene, I Believe in Christmas–and look, now, the Christmas Carol Contest doesn’t officially start until the day after Thanksgiving, but I just can’t say no to a hymn request.

Don’t forget there’s a comment contest going on just now: shooting for 35,000, and as of this moment, just over 1,000 left to go. I wonder if we can wrap that up by Halloween.

By Request, ‘I Know God Put ‘Em There’

Erlene’s been a bit under the weather this week, so I hope this song that she requested will make her feel better: I Know God Put ‘Em There, by Carroll Roberson. Truly, God’s handiwork is all around us, all the time; and its message is, “God is nigh.” Always.

By Request, ‘Just Go By’

We have one more hymn request today, and I think posting it now will do us all some good: Just Go By, sung by Carroll Roberson, requested by Erlene.

You just can’t count on princes, leaders, really smart people: “Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils,” said Isaiah.

But we can count on the finished work of Jesus Christ Our Lord.

By Request: ‘Blessed Are Those Who’ve Never Seen’

Requested by Erlene: Blessed Are Those Who’ve Never Seen, sung by Carroll Roberson.

Thomas, because thou has seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.    –John 20:29

By Request, ‘The Way’

Listen to the lyrics of this Carroll Roberson song: “I don’t go by what I see, because my God has made a way for me.” And what is the way? Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth and the life…” (John 14:6)

Requested by Erlene: The Way, by Carroll Roberson.

By Request, ‘He Still Has the Scars’

This is another worship song suggested by Erlene–He Still Has the Scars, by Carroll Roberson.

I find the crucifixion of Our Lord Jesus Christ almost too horrible to contemplate. I’ve lived all my life in the modern United States: we don’t get to see public executions, extravagant and gory punishments. In fact, it’s against the law in our country, per the Eighth Amendment. So I have to imagine the crucifixion, and it’s not easy.

Add to that the fact that Jesus Christ was innocent: without sin: He had done only good, all throughout his ministry: and He spoke the truth. Even Pilate knew that Jesus was innocent.

“His blood be upon us and our children,” cried the crowd.

“We have no king but Caesar,” cried the crowd.

But the Lord lives, and has obtained forgiveness of sins and eternal life for all who believe in Him. And He still has the scars.
