“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.”
(Katherine Hanky 1866)
These words from the hymn I LOVE TO TELL THE STORY, the story of Jesus and His glory, the story of Jesus and His love. The story that never grows old. The writer of these words expressed ”what seems each time I tell it more wonderfully sweet.” An acquaintance of mine shared how he writes down the Biblical story every Wednesday of the week as part of his daily devotion. He writes out on paper the story of Jesus. This practice keeps the story fresh in his heart and mind; ready to share on a moments notice as opportunity presents itself. How will I, how will you increase our love for Jesus and our love to tell story? In what ways can we make His story known? The world is desperate to hear!
