Born 1825 -- born again 1925

 

 

An old lady now in her hundred and fourth year lives in a one-room cottage at Croydon. When she was a hundred years old she was visited by a city missionary who explained John 3:16 to her. "How wonderful," she said, "and how good the Lord has been in sparing me these hundred years that I might learn the way of life!" This conversion is described in a London City Mission Magazine and ends with these words: "Born 1825; born again 1925." Surely "the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation." -- Sunday School Times
