“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.” Psalm 23:3
“I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly…. I give them eternal live, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.” John 10:10, 28
Is the Lord Jesus your Shepherd? Has He called you out of the wilderness; called your heart from the love of sin and the world and brought you into His fold and pastures, causing you cheerfully to attend on His ordinances? And does He feed and refresh your soul with His word?
Can you distinguish the Shepherd’s voice from the voice of a hireling? And does your heart cleave to the Shepherd in faith and love, adoring His person and approving His laws, as well as admiring His doctrines? Then fear not; the Lord is with you; Jesus is your Shepherd; you shall lack nothing that is really good. Follow your Shepherd until He brings you to glory. Jesus, the faithful, careful Shepherd, never lost one of His sheep yet, and He never will. Keep close to Him, and you are not only safe but happy; He will not only keep you — but feed you with His own sweet words and gracious communications. He loves to see His sheep lying at His feet, feeding on His word, and enjoying His presence.

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.
