I wanted to go to this new movie on its opening night. Now I don’t do that very often. We as a family will do our best to make the opening day for a Pixar film and back when the new Star Wars came out. And I did go to the midnight showing with some of the youth I was ministering to but usually I wait until it comes out in a Redbox to see it.
So this was a movie I had been looking forward to, so on the day of I thought I might go and get a ticket for an IMAX 3D showing about an hour away. Before I left I went online to buy the tickets and avoid the lines and guess what I discovered? Yep, it was sold out!
For me that was no big deal, I will just go at another time! What if that were the only showing ever? That would be disappointing. It kind of reminded me of the old Ira Stanphill Hymn. He wrote this particular hymn because as a traveling musical evangelist, he wrote down the title of the sermon and latter wrote it out into an entire hymn.
Those chorus of which went like this. There’s room at the cross for you; There room at the cross for you. Though millions have come, there’s still room for one- Yes, there’s room at the cross for you.
That is still true today, Jesus said Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. While movies may sell out, Heaven never will. Thanks be to the God who invites us to be spend an eternity with him.
28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
