The Word cannot be stopped

This morning at worship our pastor shared the following story -
He said that the Bible was first brought to Korea in the 1800's.
The man that came to tell them about Jesus was attacked by some bandits.
As they were coming to kill him, he handed his Bible to them,
after which they cut off his head.
One of the attackers took this Bible to his home
which was some kind of a meeting place.
He took the pages of this Bible and used it as wallpaper on the walls.
As people came to spend time there, they began to read what
the pages said.
From there the gospel of salvation went out and now there are
many believers in Korea.
What an awesome God; His Word is so powerful it cannot be stopped.
What a blessing!
