Sometime ago, a traveling evangelist was riding along and singing to himself a song called, “I’ve Been Redeemed.”
A fellow passenger heard him and began to sing along. When they finished singing the evangelist asked the stranger if he had been redeemed.
The man said, “Yes, praise the Lord.”
So the evangelist asked him when it was.
“About nineteen hundred years ago,” the man replied.
The evangelist was astonished and thought the man was a little crazy. He asked, “Nineteen hundred years ago?”
The man replied, “Yes, sir; but I’m sorry to say it’s only been about a year that I’ve known about it.” — George Cavanagh
