"So as by Fire"

A woman in Scotland was determined to have nothing to do with "religion.", She threw her Bible into the fire, together with a few tracts she found in the house.
One of the tracts, a sermon by Spurgeon, fell out of the flames. She picked it up and thrust it in again. A second time it slipped down to the hearth and once more she put it back in the fire. Again her evil intention was frustrated. The third time, however, was more successful, though even then only half of the tract was consumed.
Taking up the portion that had escaped the flames she exclaimed, "Surely the Devil is in that tract, for it will not burn!"
Her curiosity was aroused. She began to read it, and it was the means of her conversion to God! Truly the portion of the sermon and the woman, too, were saved yet "so as by fire."
Possibly you think you are not as bad as this woman who threw the Bible into the fire. But if you are rejecting Christ, what is the difference?
If until now you have resisted the pleadings of the almighty God, and refused His great salvation, your case could hardly be worse. The matter of highest concern to you is the salvation of your soul. Are you saved?
