Saved By The Bible

Ten days ago, Pfc. Brendon Schweigart, 22 was on a mission to recover a tank that had broken down in Baghdad, Iraq. Upon reaching the tank, he was struck in the chest by a sniper's bullet. Fortunately for Schweigart, the bullet embedded itself into a Bible he carried in his shirt pocket. The Word of God had quite literally saved his life!
Mr. Schweigart's experience reminds me of a passage in the Bible. "Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls" (James 1:21).
Pfc. Brendon Schweigart learned that keeping a Bible near your heart can literally save your life, but more important than that, keeping a Bible near your heart will also be able to stop the attacks of the Devil and will save your soul.
