“We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory.” 1 Corinthians 2:7

There are some things declared in the gospel which are absolutely its own. They can be traced neither in the law of nature nor in the law of God. Of this nature are all things relating to the love and goodwill of God in Christ Jesus: the mystery of His incarnation, of His offices, of the work of the Spirit, of our interest in it, and of our consequent union with Christ. To this class belongs our adoption, justification, and effectual sanctification. These things are properly evangelical, being peculiar to the gospel.

The apostle Paul, to whom a dispensation of the gospel was especially committed, insists on these subjects with all his characteristic firmness and ardor. He felt their efficacy and was anxious that all mankind should feel it also. Let us copy his example, and by the tongue, the pen, and the press endeavor to spread abroad the knowledge of Christ.

The gospel should be preached to every creature, and everyone that knows it should assist in preaching it. May we spread abroad the fame of Jesus throughout the whole country.

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
