EVANGELISM BY THE PRINTED PAGE
BIBLE TEXT: ACTS 1:1-4
MEMORY VERSE: “The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach” (ACTS 1:1).
A story was told of an old woman who was on the verge of committing suicide, and just about that time, she heard a knock on her door. Reluctantly, she opened and found a young boy with a tract in his hand and an angelic smile on his face, who told her of God’s unconditional love for her and left. Puzzled, she read the tract that night, joy flooded her heart, and the thought of death flew away! The joy of salvation would make the vilest sinner jettison his or her sinful life.
The act of this young boy who came and delivered a soul from death by bringing the person to sweet communion with God is commendable. Literature evangelism is the giving out of Christian publications or materials such as tracts, youth magazines and books to fellow youths, so they can come to know Jesus. Like that young boy, you can also reach out to your friends, families, both far and near, by giving them tracts, sending e-mails, text messages and posting gospel messages on social media platforms to win them to Jesus.
QUOTE: Reach out and save someone today.
CHALLENGE: Prayerfully give out tracts today.
PRAYER: Father, help me to share the gospel through tracts.
