“We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 5:10
And are there scoffers, who madly walk after their own lusts and question the coming of the Lord? The hour hastens when infidelity shall doubt no more: “The Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God.” How will sinners fade away and be afraid in their close places, when visible to all, the Judge shall appear on His great white throne, and from His face the earth and the heavens flee away! Before Him shall stand the whole race of men, small and great, and by the testimony of God and their own consciences, shall be fully proved and openly declared what they have been and what they have done. Then sentence, most righteous, irrevocable, and big with eternity, shall be pronounced; on the wicked, everlasting punishment; on the righteous, life eternal! Think, oh think, what destruction is hanging over your heads, you obstinate transgressors! For, “Behold He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him.” “Now is the accepted time … now is the day of salvation.” Now embrace Him as your offered, your all-sufficient Savior; so shall you be forever delivered from Him as your angry Judge. If you neglect the call, how shall you abide the day of His coming in flaming fire, to take vengeance on all them that know not God and obey not the gospel? O to be found in Christ at that day!

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.
