The Gospel will not burn!

 

 

A woman had often been urged by Christians to receive the Lord. In spite of their persistent efforts, she continued to harden her heart. One day she threw into the blazing fireplace a Bible and several tracts someone had given her. One of the leaflets fell out of the flames, so she cast it in again. A second time it slipped down, and once more she put it back. Again her evil intentions were frustrated. The third time, however, part of it became scorched. That night when the fire had died down, she picked up the portion that remained and exclaimed, "Surely the devil must be in that paper, for it will not burn!" Out of curiosity she began to read the partially destroyed tract. Being a message on salvation, it brought deep conviction to her heart. Finally, through that half-charred leaflet she was led to Christ!
