“So we preach, and so you believed.” 1 Corinthians 15:11

The method of the gospel is this:

First, it proposes things which are peculiarly its own. It reveals its own mysteries, laying them as the foundation of faith and obedience; and it also fixes them in the mind, thereby conforming the whole soul unto them (1 Corinthians 15:3; Romans 6:17; Galatians 4:19; Titus 2:11-12; 1 Corinthians 3:11; 2 Corinthians 3:18).

This foundation being laid, the obedience of faith is built upon it. Where this foundation is not laid through ignorance, or where it is rejected through prejudice, the gospel is of no service. It neither renews the soul nor produces any genuine obedience. Thus the apostle Paul, in all his epistles, teaches first the mysteries of faith that are peculiar to the gospel, and then specifies those moral duties which are regulated thereby. In order that the gospel may be effectually believed, it must be diligently examined and well understood.

And when our faith is thus firmly established, it is to show itself in the practice of all those good works that are required of us in the Scriptures. “As many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.”

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.
