“I have sinned against the LORD… The Lord also has put away your sin; you shall not die.” 2 Samuel 12:13

“For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged.” 1 Corinthians 11:31

He who with sincere repentance accuses and judges himself, placing no dependence on works of righteousness which he may have done, but looking only to the mercy of God through His dear Son, may expect to receive forgiveness of all his sins at once, though chastisement may follow. For pardons are not bestowed in various measures, as spiritual gifts are.

God, through Christ, receives the whole person of a penitent sinner into His favor, forgiving both original and actual sins in one instant, so that either none or all are forgiven. But repentance is needful to humble a sinner and to bring him to Christ — yet no sins are forgiven on account of this repentance. Sins are forgiven through faith alone in the blood of Christ. This it is that the purifications of the ceremonial law were designed to typify. This fountain washes away the guilt of all sins, though ever so numerous and heinous.

For it is written, “The blood of Christ cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7). And, “God for Christ’s sake has forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:32).

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.
