“If anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules.” 2 Timothy 2:5

“Until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence.” Matthew 11:12

If those cannot expect to be crowned who strive — but not lawfully, what must become of those who do not strive at all?

O Lord, grant both to direct and to strengthen my soul, that I may glorify You by resisting and overcoming all my spiritual adversaries. In humble reliance on Your grace, I will go forth and fight the good fight of faith, till the happy hour arrives when I shall be summoned by the Captain of salvation to quit the combat, to leave the scene of watch and of trial, and I shall joyfully exclaim, “Thanks be to God, who gives me the victory through Jesus Christ our Lord!”

My soul, you have foes to conquer and a kingdom to obtain. The armor of God must be taken, and the strength of God must be sought. No other weapons will conquer your foes; no other strength is sufficient for your work. But in the strength of God, with the armor of righteousness, the weakest will overcome, and the lame will take the prey. Take, therefore, to yourself the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand.

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.
