“This is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ…. God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.” 1 John 3:23, 4:9

The Father breaks forth, as it were, through the whole Scripture — in praises of His Son. He calls out from Heaven, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!” (Matthew 17:5). Nothing, therefore, can be more agreeable to Him — than for us to receive  His Son, and to believe His report (John 16:27). In doing this — we shall have life, but by omitting it — we treat Him as a liar. Unbelief, therefore, which refuses to accept of this great gift — is, no doubt, the greatest of all sins. O Lord, teach me this — and grant me faith.

Why are you so backward, O my soul — to believe, like the rest of God’s children, in Christ? Have you not as good a right to Him as they have? Who can dispute with you this privilege? It is the express will of the Father — nay, He even commands you to believe. Has He given His only Son, by an act of inconceivable love, to die for you, to the very end that you should live? O what a pleasing thing will it be to Him, to put your whole trust upon this His well-beloved Son! This would be the joy of His heart, more than anything else. Therefore delay no longer to receive what His love has offered you, in His beloved Son.

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.
