“It is done!” Revelation 21:6
When Jesus bowed the head and gave up the spirit, He said, “It is finished.” The arduous and important work of obedience and suffering which He had undertaken in His mediatorial capacity was brought to a conclusion. He could say to His heavenly Father, “I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given me to do.”
When all the redeemed are gathered, He who sits on the throne, beholding those He purchased with His blood and brought to glory, rejoicing in these works of His hands, may thus express Himself: It is done. The means and helps appointed for training you up and preparing you for glory are now laid aside, being no longer necessary. The scaffolding is now taken down, when the grand and glorious building, in all its parts, is completed. That which is perfect has come, and that which was in part is done away. What depth of wisdom, what beautiful order in the plan of salvation and in the tendency of its various parts, to perfect the glorious work of redeeming love, agreeably to the eternal counsel of peace! How harmoniously are all the links of the golden chain connected (Romans 8:29-30)!
This is the doing of the Lord, and is it not marvelous in my eye? When receiving the Spirit that is of God, I see the things that are freely given of God. Do I not see and admire Immanuel in the whole of the plan? Is not His eye upon me, and His arm around me? O amazing wisdom and love! O my God, I will live in hope of enjoying Your presence and glory forever!

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.
