Using The "On A Scale Of 0 to 10...." Tract

I've been having a great time using this tract. It gets a response! Ronnie wouldn't take it at Walmart yesterday until after we had a coversation. He said that we can't know where we are going and then pulled out the "hypocrites in the church" card. I'm glad that he took the tract when we parted. Two people have said "I'm not sure." and just walked away. Maybe God has been dealing with them. Christopher told me "5" after I asked him the question. While I was waiting for my wife after work this evening, I walked to the NowSave. I asked Mac the question while I gave him the tract and while he was putting beer in a cooler. He said 7. His friend, Sham, said the same. I asked them to read the tract when they could. I gave Tavarus one at the gas pumps. He said "I know that I need to get right!". 

I'm glad that I can say "10", but there are so many that can't. Let's keep on working so that they can!

Monday Witnessing - January 20, 2014

I went to Walmart at lunch time today. Usually when I do this, I'll give out tracts on the way to the McDonald's that is located in the back of the store. I gave  a "This Is the Verdict" tract to a man and asked him if he stood before God, would he be innocent or guilty. He said "Uh, Oh!". 
When I was leaving McDonald's, I gave two men the "Do You Know Where You Are Going?" tract. I asked Dominique if he knew where he was going when he died. He said that he didn't know. I saw several  Spanish men there. Juan, two named Jose, Francisco, Huber, and Guillermo took tracts. 

After work, I went to Super One to get a few things. I gave a "Do You Know Where You Are Going?" tract to  Chris. I gave two more Spanish men (Jose and his friend) tracts inside. I gave the "On a Scale Of 0 -10... " tract to Mitch. He said that he couldn't say 10. I asked him to read the tract and 1 John 5. 
It is very encouraging to witness on a daily basis. Most people have never had a Gospel tract offered to them or anyone speak to them about their soul. Please pray for boldness if you are struggling with witnessing. The more you do it, the more you want to do it!

Gospel Tract Spotlight: Can You Name Ten Of The Most Popular Valentine's Day Gifts?

This tract is in February's supply in the Bezeugen Tract Club. ( Join Here : http://www.bezeugentractclub.org). It can be ordered thruonemilliontracts.com 

Can you name ten of the most popular Valentine's Day Gifts?

Answer: any of the following: card, roses/flowers, jewelry
spa day, dinner out, trip, chocolate, perfume, technology, romantic music, a day with you, photo frame,
candles, books.  Here is another question. Can you name the Ten Commandments? The Bible says there will come a day when we will all be judged by the commandments. Have you ever told a lie? Stolen anything? Used God's name carelessly or as a curse word? Have you ever hated anyone or called someone a fool? Jesus calls hatred murder. Have you ever looked with lust? Jesus calls lust adultery! If you admit that you are a liar, a thief, a blasphemer, a murderer and an adulterer, then you have broken five of the Ten Commandments. Will God find you innocent or guilty? Will he send you to heaven or hell? People generally associate Valentines Day with love and romance. "This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins." (1 John 4:10) God does not want you to go to hell. He sent His only son Jesus Christ to fulfill the Law. Being fully God and fully man, Jesus lived a perfect life and is therefore the perfect sacrifice for the sin of the whole world. He died on a cross to pay for your sin. Jesus rose from the dead, defeating sin, death and the devil. Make Jesus your Valentine! Repent (turn from sin) and trust Jesus alone, then you will have eternal life (Mark 1:15).www.AfterLifeCatalog.com

Door To Door Evangelism

Our church has been going door to door for about 5 months now. We go at least once a month, giving out tracts and leaving door hangers that have a Gospel message on the back. These door hangers, from Bezeugen Ministries, can be ordered through onemilliontracts.com.
We had a group of seven go out this morning. We went to about 75 doors, including new duplexes and houses in the Sterlington area. One Muslim woman took a tract. A young woman took a tract and a door hanger. She said that she didn't have a church background. This was a very encouraging time. Please pray for the seeds that were sown and the ones that will be sown the next time we go out.

A Gospel Tract Testimony From The Past

The Tract That Sent the Gospel to China

"The best thing I can do is enjoy the pleasures of this world, for there’s no hope for me beyond the grave." So thought 16-year-old James. Although he had been raised in a devout Methodist home, he was frustrated by his growing feelings of doubt about God. He had tried to make himself a Christian by doing the right things and associating with the right people—and he failed. "For some reason," he concluded, "I cannot be saved."

One afternoon, James found a gospel tract on a bookshelf in his home. While reading through the tract he was struck by the phrase "the finished work of Christ." "What does that mean?" he questioned.

In a moment he remembered something from his religious training: "And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world" (1 John 2:2).

Then he said, "If the whole work was finished and the whole debt paid, what is there left for me to do?"

Years later James penned these words about that moment of truth: "With this [thought] dawned the joyful conviction. . .that there was nothing in the world to be done but [to]... accept this Savior and His salvation."

It was not long after this eternal decision that James—James Hudson Taylor—now heralded as one of the pioneer missionaries of the 19th century, received his call from God to take this same Gospel of grace to China.

God’s heart for missions explains why He has so often used gospel tracts not only to carry the good news to foreign lands, but also to motivate men and women to become the messengers.
