I Love To Tell The Story

Psalms 66:16 Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for my soul.

Do you love to tell the story? The bottom line of this story is given in Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. God is holy, loving, and just and, while He loves human beings, He is also just and must punish their sin. All men are sinners and cannot save themselves by their works or good deeds. They are helpless in and of themselves. However, God solved this problem by sending His son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross and suffer the penalty for the sins of those who place their faith in Him. Through trusting in faith in His death and resurrection, sinners not only have their sins paid for by Christ, but they also have the righteousness of Christ imputed to them. Salvation and eternal life is by God’s grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. This is the story of Biblical salvation and there is no other way by which men can be saved.

Praise God for this gospel story. Brethren, rejoice if you trust in this story by faith because you are rich and healthy spiritually even if you are on your deathbed without a penny to your name. What a wonderful story we have to tell!

I Love To Tell The Story
Words by: A. katherine Hankey

I love to tell the story of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and His glory, of Jesus and His love.
I love to tell the story, because I know ’tis true;
It satisfies my longings as nothing else can do.

I love to tell the story, ’twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story of Jesus and His love.

I love to tell the story; more wonderful it seems
Than all the golden fancies of all our golden dreams.
I love to tell the story, it did so much for me;
And that is just the reason I tell it now to thee.

I love to tell the story; ’tis pleasant to repeat
What seems, each time I tell it, more wonderfully sweet.
I love to tell the story, for some have never heard
The message of salvation from God’s own holy Word.

I love to tell the story, for those who know it best
Seem hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest.
And when, in scenes of glory, I sing the new, new song,
’Twill be the old, old story that I have loved so long.

I have a friend in Nepal, who has taken the Word of grace to people, who have never heard the name of Jesus Christ.
And some are being brought into the kingdom.

Thanks for another fine, and encouraging, post Wayne.

You keep on telling the story. Never get tired of it. Go to your grave telling it. Wear your self out telling it.

Great post!!!

Don and Mark,
Thanks. It seems it is getting to be politically incorrect to tell the story in America. However, we must obey God on this issue rather than the elites that set the PC standards.

We saw the movie, "EXPELLED No Intelligence Allowed" this past weekend. It was very good.
