“Listen to Me, you stubborn-hearted, who are far from righteousness: I bring My righteousness near, it shall not be far off; My salvation shall not linger.” Isaiah 46:12-13

“We are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags.” Isaiah 64:6

True religion is founded upon the knowledge of the true God. Sinners are apt to think that they have a high opinion of God because they think highly of His mercy; whereas God is as holy and as just as He is merciful, and He will as certainly punish the guilty as He will pardon the penitent and believing soul.

“God, I thank You that I am not like other men,” says every self-righteous sinner; not considering that, if God were extreme to mark what is amiss, no flesh living could be justified.

“God, be merciful to me a sinner,” says every true Christian and real believer. Till this be your language, O my soul; until you feel yourself a lost and helpless sinner; until you be brought to acknowledge the justice of God in your condemnation; until you be driven to Christ as your only refuge and hope of salvation, you are “ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish [your] own righteousness,” and do not submit to the righteousness of Christ.

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.
