Tracts

I know that many people have different views of tracts, but I think that tracts are a great thing to pass out to those that we come in contact with. Hudson Taylor, a missionary to China gave his life to the Lord after reading a tract. I have just posted a list of links with great gospel tracts - that use the KJV....so look down at bottom of this blog.

Gospel tracts have the amazing ability to deliver their message to many souls that the distributor of the tract will never even meet. Hudson Taylor, who was used of the Lord to reach countless souls in China, was one such soul. What a marvelous harvest was reaped from just one seed sown!

Seeking something to while away his time, Hudson Taylor turned over a basket of tracts in his father's library and selected one that looked interesting. While reading it he was struck with the phrase, "The finished work of Christ."

Immediately the words attracted his attention. "What was finished?" he asked himself. Reading further, the tract explained the finished work as "A full and perfect atonement and satisfaction for the sins of the whole world. "

Then Hudson thought, "If the whole work was finished on the cross of Calvary, and the whole debt of sin paid, what is there left for me to do?"

Hudson was thus convinced, as the light of God's truth flashed into his soul by the Holy Spirit, "There was nothing to be done but to fall down on my knees and accept the Saviour and His salvation and praise Him forever."

Hudson Taylor was seventeen years old at the time. He then went on to faithfully serve His Saviour for many years in China.

I can't imagine anyone having any problem with tracts. A small snippet of God's Word? I think if it's a way to give out the Gospel then do it. In Croatia we constantly use tracts and I have no idea what we would do without them.

Anyhow, have a great Sunday!
