A Tract A Day August 12, 2019


Just a few days ago my dad challenged our home church family to take 6 gospel tracts – one for each day between Sundays – and pass them along to others. Great numbers of people took 6 tracts to share with family, friends, and strangers. It has been wonderful to see the good response of people in the community and a wonderful reminder of a simple way to share Christ.

As I have been working to stay “armed with the gospel” every day I have been reminded of several things:

Giving out a tract is not the goal – pointing people to Jesus is the goal! In many instances a kind word and a gospel tract may open up a conversation about Christ. Do not allow a piece of paper to substitute for speaking about the Lord Jesus. Let it be an entry point.

Carrying gospel tracts every day is a constant reminder to speak to people along the way. Jesus said, “And as ye go, preach” (Matthew 10:7). Witnessing is not something you finish, but something you are to continue. It is a way of life. (Read more about why you should use gospel tracts here.)

Passing out gospel literature is something you can do everyday, anywhere. I cannot always preach a sermon or be engaged in some public ministry, but I can always be looking for personal opportunities to share God’s truth. Needy souls are everywhere and you never know how God will use a simple witness.

To be sure, we can all give out more than 6 tracts in a week, but it is a good starting point. Would you make a personal goal to give out a tract a day this week? Every day is a day for a gospel witness!

The ruins of the Castle of the Servant in Jordan. The historian Josephus wrote that the dynasty of Tobiah built a castle on the east side of the Jordan River, in Ammon. He specifically wrote in the Antiquities of the Jews about the carved "beasts of gigantic size" visible here on the left corner of the structure. The beasts on the right side are not as well-preserved. The structure dates to the centuries after Nehemiah, however it shows the power and prestige of this family of "servants."

The Mountain of the House, also known as the Temple Mount, with the Mount of Olives in the background.
Some of the steps in the foreground date from the Second Temple period, and would have been the steps Jesus ascended. Archeologists have uncovered around 300 baptismal pools along the steps leading up to the Temple. They would be convenient for baptizing 3,000 people!
The Hebrew word ruakh can mean either spirit, wind, or breath. The Breath of God, the Spirit of God, and the Wind of God are all understood to be cognates.
