On today’s episode, the guys tackle the topic of gospel tracts. Listen as the guys share about the tracts they have given and received over the years. Many Christians assume handing out tracks will be a controversial act, but from the guy’s experience it usually turns out to be a pleasant exchange. In fact, it could even be a life changing event for non-believers. Gospel tracts have been around long before even the printing press, and we can’t negate their effectiveness. They speak clearly and get right to the point without straying from the intended message. They never get tired or give up, and are always ready to speak directly to readers at any given time or location.
The Bible is the ultimate gospel tract which leaves nothing unsaid. Ultimately, a tract is the Bible condensed in some way. When distributing gospel tracts, we should remember that the worst thing which could happen is for people to not read them. On the contrary, the best thing which could happen could change someone’s entire life. Living Waters designs tracts which are fun, joyful and lighthearted to give and receive. We need to trust that God will, in His own divine timing, use His gifts. The advantages of distributing gospel tracts don’t stop there. What’s more is the fact that every person can easily do it, a tract always sticks to its point and never loses its temper. Oftentimes, people who are too proud to be talked to will read a tract when no one is looking. A tracts always stays with a person even after the conversation has long since ended. Finally, tracts can lead people to Christ. When preaching and private talk are not available, you need to have a tract ready. A touching tract can serve as a seed of eternal life.
So, what makes a good gospel tract? Firstly, it must be engaging and able to hold the attention of readers. The main touch points include commandments, gospel, repentance, faith and resurrection. Finally, the guys offer advice for listeners in giving out gospel tracts. The guys recommend Living Waters’ tract simple tract for people who want to try handing out tracts themselves. However, there are tons of options on our website so you can find the one which best serves you.
