Description

Do you consider yourself to be a good person? Most people do. However, most of us differ as to the definition of “good.” The Bible says that God is good, and the Ten Commandments are His standard of goodness. So, we will look at God’s Law . . . With a tender conscience, ask yourself if you have obeyed the following:

  1. You shall have no other gods before Me. (Have you always loved God above all else?)
  2. You shall not make yourself an idol. (Have you made a god in your mind that you’re more comfortable with, a god to suit yourself?)
  3. You shall not take God’s name in vain. (Have you ever used God’s holy Name as a cuss word?)
  4. Remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it holy.
  5. Honor your father and mother.
  6. You shall not murder. (God considers hatred to be as murder).
  7. You shall not commit adultery. (“Whoever looks upon a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart” Matthew 5:27-28; this also includes sex before marriage).
  8. You shall not steal. (Have you ever stolen anything? the value of the item is irrelevant).
  9. You shall not lie. (Have you lied even once? Including answering these questions).
  10. You shall not covet. (Have you ever jealously desired what belongs to others?)

The Bible says that God will punish all murderers, rapists, thieves, liars, adulterers, etc. He will even judge our words and thoughts. On Judgment Day, will you be found to be guilty or innocent of breaking His commandments?

Perhaps you think that God is good, and will therefore overlook your sins. But it is His goodness that will make sure that murderers, rapists, thieves, liars, etc. receive justice. He would be a corrupt Judge if He turned a blind eye to injustice. Have you kept the Commandments?

The Bible says that the Law is perfect. It commands you to be perfect (Matthew 5:48). Are you perfect (in thought, word, and deed)? Will you make it to Heaven? You may say that you are still good, but God says you’re not (see Psalm 14:2-3). So one of you is lying, and the Scriptures tell us that it is impossible for God to lie. Remember that all liars will be cast into the Lake of Fire (Revelation 21:8). God’s Law demands justice, and the penalty for sinning against Him is death and Hell. Listen carefully if you want to live.

God Himself made a way where His justice and His goodness could meet. We broke the Law, but He became a man to pay the fine. Jesus suffered and died on the cross to satisfy the Law. Then He rose from the dead, defeating death forever. Therefore God can forgive us and grant us the gift of everlasting life! But you may still think that you can (from now on) keep the Ten Commandments. But isn’t it true that the best of us have lied, stolen, lusted, hated, failed to love God above all else, and failed to love our neighbor as ourselves?

How can we then, live a “good” life if we have already sinned against God? At best we are reformed liars and thieves . . . but still Lawbreakers. Think of it this way – would you sell one of your eyes for a million dollars? Would you sell both for $50 million? I’m sure you wouldn’t. Your eyes are priceless, yet they are merely the windows of your soul. What then must your life (soul) be worth? With these thoughts in mind, what would be a fair price to pay for everlasting life? It is utterly without price. Yet, if we trust in our own goodness to enter Heaven, we are saying to God, “I should enter Heaven because I have done good – I have earned my way in.”

Imagine if you wanted to give me a brand new (very expensive) car, but I said, “I can’t take it! I feel embarrassed receiving such a gift . . . here’s 10 cents for it.” I’m sure you would be very insulted by such a pathetic offer of payment. Besides, if I pay for it, it is no longer a gift, it’s a purchase . . . it’s mine by right.

When we talk of entering Heaven by being good, by trying to keep the Ten Commandments etc., we are tossing God 10 cents of “self-righteousness,” which is a terrible insult to Him, in the light of His sacrifice. The only thing we can do is humble ourselves, repent of our sins, and receive the gift by trusting Jesus Christ alone. Almighty God demonstrated how much He loves you when Jesus suffered for you on the cross. If you want to trust in your own goodness, then you are saying His agonizing death on the cross was in vain. The Bible says, “For by grace are you saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.” You cannot earn a gift.

When Jesus said to “believe” on Him, He was saying we should have faith in Him, in the same way you would trust a parachute to save you when you jump from a plane. You don’t merely believe in the parachute – you put it on. Please don’t “jump” without Jesus. If you die in your sins there is no second chance. God will give you justice, and you will end up in Hell forever. Any troubles you have at present are dwarfed by the trouble you are in with your Creator. His wrath abides upon you (John 3:36). God doesn’t want you to go to Hell. Neither do you want to go there, so confess your sins to God right now, put your trust in Jesus to save you, and you will pass from death to life. Then read the Bible daily and obey what you read. (See John 14:21). Your obedience to God is the proof of your love. Have faith in God, He will never fail you.

Pray something like this:

Dear God, today I turn away from all of my sins (name them). This day I put my trust in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. He is the only way for me to be saved. He is ‘The way, the truth, and the life.'” Please forgive me, change my heart, and grant me Your gift of everlasting life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”

  1. Thomas

    I love placing these tracts in the Beer slits in grocery stores and inside pockets of clothes. Small booklet that can find it self in the right place at the right time for the right person. You can also open up a Candle lid at the store and place this Gospel Tract inside as another great spot to place these tracts.

  2. Jackie (verified owner)

    I have looked at a lot of different tracts, and there are so few other then Living Waters tracts, which include the 10 commandments. I have gotten others and used them, but keep coming back to this one! I love this little booklet and it is my go-to tract. Simple, concise and great!
    One thing I would consider is with the last part, when you share the gospel, to tell people they must be born again (John 3:3). This still does sort of make it sound like ‘pray the prayer and you are in,’ rather then the lifelong commitment it is to serve Christ. “Those who persevere to the end shall be saved” (Matt. 24:13)

  3. Ed Yeaste (verified owner)

    They fit perfectly in the credit card slot at the gas stations, fit into the slots of cases of beer at the store, they are great to leave with gratuity on table in restaurants and hotel rooms where you stay. They are also great to give to people you are sharing the Gospel with. Once again, thank you Living Waters for providing such an incredible tool that can bring Light to the darkest places we may venture in our daily lives. God Bless!

  4. Ed Yeaste

    I use these tracts all the time….they are a fantastic way to get someone’s attention and to share the good news of the Gospel. Thank you so much Living Waters for putting these together and making them available!

  5. misterjesse

    Great tract! I used it after sharing the Word with a person. Person asked me questions as they read the tract. It brought him to tears.

How to Download videos on iOS Devices

(iPhone, iPad, iPod, etc.)

We recommend downloading your digital download purchases on your computer when connected to WiFi. However, since iOS 11 (2017), Apple mobile devices (i.e. iPad, iPhone, iPod) can download and save MP4 files as well. Here’s how:

After purchase, you will receive an email confirmation with your download link. If you touch that link from a mobile device, the video/MP4 file will load into your browser and begin playing (i.e. streaming) the content. However, the MP4 video download files you are purchasing are not intended to be viewed as a video stream (e.g. YouTube) but instead need to be downloaded and saved on your computer or device for later viewing.

INSTRUCTIONS

In order to download your purchase to an iOS device, you need to use Safari on iOS/iPadOS, etc. If the email download link loads “full screen” in Safari, exit full screen and touch the “Share” icon, then scroll to “Save to Files” and navigate to the folder where you would like to save the file. Once downloaded and saved, open the native iOS “Files” app (which is installed on every iOS device by default) to locate and view your file in the location that you saved it. Screenshots below:

We hope this helps! Again, we do recommend downloading your digital content from a computer so you will always have it for viewing later, but it is possible to do it from your mobile device as well using the instructions above.
