The kids of Messiah Lutheran Day School sang one of my favorite kid songs this morning at their end of the year celebration: “He’s got the whole world in His hands!”
Those hands are creative hands! They formed Adam from the dust of the earth and gave life to humanity. They continue to knit together each baby inside his/her mother’s womb. Those hands are creative!
Those hands are redemptive! He still carries the scar marks that prove his eternal Love and His resurrected Life. By His wounds we are healed. Those are redemptive hands!
Those are sanctifying hands! He continues to mold us as a potter shapes the clay. He molds us into vessels to carry light into the world. Those are sanctifying hands!
He’s got the whole world in His hands and those hands continue to give life to you and me each day. Thanks, kids, for reminding me about whose hands I’m in!
