“‘What must I do to be saved?’ So they said, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.'” Acts 16:30-31

Faith is not confidence of our own making — but it is God that produces it in a broken and repenting heart. This faith purifies us, crucifies the old Adam, overcomes the world, effects a change through all our faculties and feelings.

True faith receives Christ as presented in the gospel, works by love, and brings forth the fruits of righteousness. All true believers have received it under a sense of godly sorrow. If we feel something of this and apply to Christ by prayer for faith and grace, we have a sure mark of faith already; for if we did not believe, we would not thus mourn and pray. He that daily applies to the blood of Christ for cleansing has true faith and hope already, though he is but weak and does not taste any joy. Salvation is promised to believing, and the faith to which salvation is promised is simple confidence in Christ. Jesus has done all that is necessary to save us, and what He has done is placed to the account of everyone that flies to and exercises confidence in Him.

My soul, do you believe in Jesus? Have you committed your soul into His hands to be saved by Him? If so, trust and be not afraid; He will save you.

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.
