The Powerful Word

The Lord’s Word will not return void. The Word of God is alive and powerful.
Erwin W. Lutzer wrote a great illustration from the book Yesterday, Today, and Forever, The Word of God in the Life of His People for the verse, Jeremiah 23:29.
“An angry young man stood at the back of a train and threw the new Bible his mother gave him as far as he could. Yet months later he returned, repentant that he had mistreated God’s Book. He learned that the damaged Bible had fallen into the hands of a child who read it and was converted. Now both met as brothers in Christ; the one as a restored believer, the other as a newly converted twelve-year-old. What other book can soften the heart of an angry man and convert a child? Only the Bible.

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

Jeremiah 23:29  (KJV)
