One of the high and holy opportunities we have at Indian River Baptist Church is the bringing of boys and girls to the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. It is a common thing to see children walking the aisle, receiving Christ as Saviour. This past Sunday we had a young man who had accepted Christ the week before come again when the invitation was given. Our bus director, Aaron Birge, said to the boy, “You got saved last week. You don’t have to get saved again.” The boy said, “I know. I don’t want to get saved again, I just want to hear the story again!”
Glory! Hallelujah! It would do us all well to hear the story again!
The song says, “Oh, tell me His name again! Oh, sing me that sweet refrain! How He who in love came down from above to die on the cross of shame! That story my heart has heard. It’s the sweetest that I’ve ever heard. It banishes fear; brings hope and good cheer. Oh, tell me His name again!
The story of the love of Jesus Christ is the world’s greatest story; it never grows old. May you and I in our hearts today express the sentiment of that young man who said, “I don’t want to get saved again. I just want to hear the story again!”
