“He who endures to the end shall be saved.” Matthew 24:13
“Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.” Revelation 3:11
“Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall” 1 Corinthians 10:12
He who stands fast in faith and is of a cheerful temper must not magnify the measure of his own faith, nor undervalue that of weaker believers; such conduct would declare that he is even now fallen into pride and contempt of his brother. Therefore, however fast we may seem to stand, let us be wary and watchful. We are never so near a fall as when we grow self-confident. He who knows the nature and power of temptations will not discourage the weak nor insist too much upon particular enjoyments and sensible assurances, which are not the constant witness and marks of faith.
The Holy Spirit Himself is the earnest and seal of adoption, who is to be known not only by His joy — but by all His other fruits and operations. To trust too much upon feeling disturbs our peace as soon as it is gone. But to rely on the word of God preserves a settled assurance. Let what God is and what God has said be the ground of your confidence; so will your soul be steady and your obedience regular.

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.
