BE ENCOURAGED TO KEEP
PUTTING OUT THOSE CHRISTIAN TRACTS!
Jesus Did It!
Hi! I’m a Christian Tract. I’m very useful to the Holy
Spirit. Just like YOU are so useful to the Holy Spirit … especially when you put
where an unsaved person can find me.
You can’t fully know how thrilled I am when you hand me to someone whose soul needs to be saved. You can’t know how much it delights me and God when you leave me where someone can find me -- someone who has not heard about Jesus and what He did for them and why -- by dying on the cross for them.
Not long ago you left me on a park bench. Though you couldn’t know it, as soon as you left me there, God assigned angels to look for the RIGHT person to find me. When they found him, they caused him to sit down on the bench where he could find me.
The Holy Spirit revealed to me a little about the history of this man. He grew up without a father and a mother. He was an orphan, living with anyone who would take him in and give him a plate of food and a place to sleep for the night. He learned to fight essentially for survival, and stealing became a way of life. At age 15, he was scrounging through a garbage can for some food, and he found an unopened can of stew. Though the stew didn’t taste quite right to him, he ate it anyway because his stomach was so desperate for food.
What he was unaware of – the stew was contaminated with dangerous bacteria that ended up going to his brain and ultimately causing him brain damage that he never fully recovered from – among other crippling effects - causing him to almost lose his eyesight.
After that, time and memories became a blur to him. But one thought never left his mind from since his earliest childhood: Is there really a God, and if so, what must I do to find Him?
As he reached over and picked me up off that park bench, he didn’t know he was about to have the way pointed to him in discovering the reality of God. And … that he was as special to God as any other person who walked this planet.
Yes it was hard for him to read the printed words because of his extremely poor eyesight, but the Holy Spirit supernaturally helped him.
When he got to where I told him, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) ... he began to think about what he had just read:
Why would God so love the world but allow a person like him to never have known lasting love from someone? That makes no sense.
Then he began to ponder where it talked about believing. He questioned to himself:
Who am I to believe IN? God, or God’s only begotten Son? Who would be God’s only begotten Son, anyway? I don’t understand …
And then the Holy Spirit gave him a vision. In the vision, he was standing before someone nailed to a tree. The man on the tree was bloody; His body disfigured; swollen and cut from being beat on.
This unfortunate man nailed to the tree then looked down at him and laser-like beams of love came out of His eyes. That indescribable love shot into the discarded man on the ground and filled him with a sense of belonging – a sense of acceptance – a sense of meaning and purpose for existing that it is impossible for a person to adequately explain. It can only be experienced.
The conclusion? IT HAPPENED! This discarded man standing at the foot of the Son suddenly comprehended what he had been born to do. He was born to enjoy God’s love for eternity.
But the only way he could begin to fully tap into it was to ask Jesus Christ to forgive him of his sins, and ask Jesus Christ to come live inside his heart. Jesus needed to be invited, I told him.
Which this once discarded man DID!
All because you left me there for him to find.
On the other side … throughout all eternity ... God will use this once discarded soul to bring Jesus, you and others never-ending joy unspeakable and full of glory beyond anything the human mind can comprehend in this life.
Now let me tell you about another incident of what happened because you left me for the Holy Spirit to use. You tossed me out your car door window. I landed on the pavement where a number of cars ran over me. Thank goodness it never hurt! The Holy Spirit moved an 8-year old girl riding her bicycle out in front of her old run-down, soon to be condemned house where she lived with her ailing grandmother. She saw me lying near the curb ... curious as to what was inside me.
I was a little hard to read because so many tires had run over me, but the Holy Spirit had made certain she could read clearly enough where I said that God never created a person to be a wasted creation to spend eternity in hell after dying.
Wow – she thought to herself – God says he never created me to be a wasted creation. Furthermore, it says that God has an eternal useful purpose for me and if I let Jesus be my Savior and Lord and include Him in my life daily, He will comfort me and guide me the rest of my life as to what would be best for me and pleasing to Him.
She took me home with her and asked her grandmother to read what was written on me. Her grandmother read over me quickly … wadded me up and tossed me in the trash can. “Don’t be reading that trash, honey. That religious crap is a bunch of nonsense! God didn't stop my boy from being killed so why should I care about God?”
That little girl stood there dazed by what her grandmother had just said. Why would someone lie on a piece of paper like that, she thought to herself. That doesn't make sense.
Later that afternoon when her grandmother was so drunk she fell asleep like she did so often, the little girl reached into the trash can and retrieved me. She unfolded me and tucked me away in her little box of special items that only she knew about. What she couldn’t be aware of at that moment was that the Holy Spirit would NOT let those words of life and truth leave her soul. In time … they would be nurtured – watered and fertilized by Him until she would one day make the wisest decision she could ever make: Invite Jesus into her heart so she could be fully at peace with God and have a correct sense of knowing of just how valuable she was to Him.
Ohhhh … I could go on and on telling you story after story of how God has used YOU to put me out where people can find me, and after reading me, their lives would never be the same. However – God wants those priceless stories kept tucked away for now. When God puts you in the presence of the lives He touched through your persistent efforts of prayerfully leaving me where needy people found me (while you were on earth) … the importance of what you did will be known by ALL. God will see to it.
Sure – your ministry can be a lonely ministry. No one sees and few would seem to care that you tirelessly keep handing me out – putting me here and there where I can be found. BUT GOD CARES! (And the people whose lives are being touched by me sure care!).
And both Godly angels and ungodly angels see what you are
doing -- myriads of them see. God's angels
smile and the ungodly angels nash their teeth at you. Saints in glory ...
great clouds of witnesses see what you are doing, and they are cheering you on
from heavenly grandstands. Millions and more likely billions are watching
... little old YOU ... sold out servant warrior for Jesus.
Because who can God count on in your area but YOU to put me on a park bench? Toss me in the street? Hand me to a stranger? Pass me along on the Internet? Link to me on Cellphones?
Someone relentlessly is trying to manipulate your thinking. Non-stop, many someone’s in the spirit dimension are trying to tell you that your relentless persistence in putting me out to lost souls is all just a huge waste of your time. That you are fooling yourself. That God will do what God is going to do and He doesn't need YOUR help. That no one cares about what Jesus did for them on the cross anymore because it's too narrow -- too contentious - too controversial. That you are just trying to make yourself someone important in your own eyes.
Well I’m writing this to tell you that you dare not for a second give place to those thoughts, because the one behind those thoughts will NEVER get to experience in eternity what he was created by God to experience. His rebellion to God short-circuited what could have been his to experience throughout eternity … but got cut off by his rebellion.
Because he and the other fallen angels will never now have what you will get to experience throughout eternity, and the multitudes of others you will be blessed to experience it with … he wants no one else experiencing it either. And if he and his demon helpers can convince you to stop putting me out ... it brings them great satisfaction, because they full-well know how the Holy Spirit can use me to touch others for the Creator's glory and their eternal redemption.
Oh – I’ll leave you with this. You know the little girl I spoke of earlier? God has a call on her life. She’ll eventually become a street Evangelist - going into the highways and byways and the neighborhoods filled with crime and violence - and God will use her to help rescue many lost souls from Satan’s spiritual deception - his grip on them - before she steps into glory.
And the discarded soul on the park bench? He asked forgiveness for his sins and invited Jesus to come live inside him. What did he have to lose, he figured. It was the best news he had ever heard.
decreed: "In the same way, the last [in this life; insert mine] will be first
[in heaven; insert mine], and the first [in this life; insert mine] will
be last [not making heaven; not without Jesus anyway; insert mine], because many are called, [called to inherit salvation through
Jesus Christ; insert mine] but few are chosen. [Choose to accept the
free gift of
salvation through Jesus Christ; insert mine]" (See: Matthew 20:19 NIV)
You just NEVER KNOW how God is going to use me to impact the lives of others.
But if you don't put me out, He can't
Keep putting me out – PLEASE. I plead on behalf of HIM.
Your labor in continuing to put me out will NOT be in vain. God promises! (See: 1 Corinthians 15:58)
