A few days ago my devotional reading called "Behold, the Lamb of God!" from the book "We shall see God" by Charles Spurgeon and Randy Alcorn, had a great story about how powerful Scripture is. I thought I'd share it here:
Spurgeon tells a remarkable story about an experience early in his ministry:
"In 1857, a day or two before preaching at the Crystal Palace, I went to decide where the platform should be fixed; and, in order to test the acoustic properties of the building, cried in a loud voice, 'Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.' In one of the galleries, a workman, who knew nothing of what was being done, heard the words, and they came like a message from heaven to his soul. He was smitten with conviction on account of sin, put down his tools, went home, and there, after a season of spiritual struggling, found peace and life by beholding the Lamb of God."
On this workman's deathbed he spoke of his conversion and how God spoke to him through that single verse he heard Spurgeon utter that day. Now that's a great story!
