“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.” Genesis 1:1-2

“We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10

Before we can really grow in holiness we must be born again.

How is it possible for a man to grow in sanctification without a real change being first wrought in his heart? It is the Spirit’s way, first to strip us of our own righteousness and strength, to show us our nakedness and nothingness, to fill us with godly sorrow for sin, and then to lead to Jesus for pardon, sanctification, and justification. Christ being the vine, we must first be united to Him, and draw nourishment and strength from Him by faith. When it is fulfilled, “They shall feed … and lie down” in His pasture, “and no one shall make afraid” (Zephaniah 3:13) — then we shall be able to bring forth good fruit, and obtain victories.

For it is God Himself that thus makes us perfect in every good work and prepares a table for us in the presence of our enemies. God works in us, that we may work out our own salvation with fear and trembling.

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.
