DO YOU KNOW THE GRACE OF GOD?
 
If you are an unbeliever, and think God is a myth, you will not know what I am talking about!  Its all rubbish, or a fairy tale!  You are therefore dead in your trespasses and sins and the god of this world (Satan) has blinded you.

 The Grace of God to a believer is wonderful, for it means unmerited favour.   It means that you know something great has happened in your life to bring you to God, through the saving knowledge of the Redeemer, the Lord Jesus Christ.   It means that you have done nothing yourself, a sinner, to make this possible.  You have been called by the free Grace of God to be in the family of God, and been forgiven for all your sins.   Christ has paid your sin-debt on the cross of Calvary and suffered and bled and died in your place.  You have known true repentance and received such a gift of eternal life.

 If you have never known this experience, then you are still in your sins, and therefore unforgiven.   Sadly, the majority are still in this place, perhaps even attending a church, never knowing the true gospel of Christ.   Many are  brought up believing they are good people, but in God’s eyes, they are still outside His Kingdom.  They have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof.  God cannot even look upon them, for they are still in their sins, and have no desire after Him.  

 So how can one know the Grace of God?   It is a free gift from the Father who draws to the Son through the Holy Spirit.    God says that if we seek Him, we will find Him.   God can open your eyes to the truth and open your heart also, and bring you as a humble sinner on your knees in prayer, begging His forgiveness.  He is Holy and those that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.    He cannot and will not accept false worship.     Man has decided that worship can be in any form, but this is false, as the worship must be God glorifying and in truth – the truth of the sovereignty of God in choosing a people for Himself to love and serve Him.

 So what is the Grace of God?  It is the wonderful, free, unmerited favor of God to lost, ruined, hell-deserving sinners, of which we are all guilty.  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.     We see grace in the eternal choice of His people.  We see it in the covenant of grace.  We see it in the union of Christ and His people.  We see grace in the Saviour of sinners, as He is their Prophet, Priest and King, and Surety of His people.  We see it in the Holy Spirit, working lovingly, graciously in salvation in sinners’ hearts, showing them their need, quickening them, leading them to the Saviour. 

 We cannot actually see Grace but we can see fruit in a believer’s life.

We cannot see the wind, but we can see the effects of it.  So it is with a true believer. 

 If you are doubting what is written here, then please get yourself a Bible (KJV) and read it, desiring to know the truth, which sets free.

God, in His mercy, may then draw you to Himself and bring you to His feet in repentance, crying for forgiveness.   There is no place like it here on earth. 





ARE YOU ONE OF GOD’S LOST SHEEP?
 
As you pick up this Tract, are you thinking “what are you talking about?”
 
Well, you see, that in this world of sin and wickedness, everyone is either a lost sheep or a goat.     God has His sheep which He searches for in this life, and He will find them.    He will bring them into His fold, for He is the good Shepherd who gave His life for the sheep.  The Lord Jesus Christ came into this sinful to give His life as a ransom for many.  He died in their place, and bore all their sins on His body on the tree.   He willingly gave up His life and bore their punishment in their place.    What a Saviour!  What a wonderful Redeemer!   God, the Father, then resurrected Him and he now sits in Heaven waiting for all His lost sheep to be brought in, making them willing to come to Him at His command.      When they are all found and collected in, then the end of the world will come.
 
So are you one of His sheep?    If so, you will be brought to Him in your lifetime.   No Religious activity, no church, no denomination can bring you – only the Spirit of the Lord can do that.  You will either read the Bible and find that you are enlightened and greatly moved by the Words you hear, or you will hear the true gospel of God’s free grace and mercy in Christ through a preacher ordained of God.
 
There are many false gospels in the world and many false preachers, but only the true Christian, God’s elect and true sheep, will know the difference.  They will not be deceived.  They will hear and they will know the truth.      The goats may also hear, but they will not hear the truth.   They will either turn away, or rubbish what they are hearing.   They will not see or know the truth, for they will be spiritually blinded to that truth.    They will think it is all lies.   They will carry on with their sinful lives in the same way they have always done. Oh yes, they might attend a church, but only have an outward form of Christianity, because it has not penetrated their hearts and their lives have not been truly changed.     Those who are truly born again by the Spirit of Christ are brought from darkness to spiritual life and they are transformed in the likeness of God’s dear Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
 
So look into your own hearts, and see whether you are a true sheep or a goat!   If you desire to know more and feel that you are hungry and thirsty to find out more, then get a King James Bible and read it.

Fall down on your knees before God, and cry out for mercy, for if you are a sheep, He will give you the gift of repentance and faith, and you will know that God is very real and He is alive.   You will then seek to follow Him and to grow and learn the Scriptures, which are to make you wise unto salvation.  You have been brought from death to life.




WHICH ROAD
ARE YOU TRAVELING ON?
 
In life, we are all traveling on one road or the other!   There are no deviations.   We are either on the broad road which leads to destruction, or on the narrow road which leads to life.   Which are you on?  
 
The broad road is where the majority are traveling, and on the narrow road, there are but very few.    The broad road is the easy road, it is a road where we do as we like, and answer to no-one, or so we think.  It is an easy road compared to the narrow road.  On the broad road, we can think we are good people, but God says in the Bible, that there are NO good people, No, not one!   It is a “do it yourself” road where we make all the decisions and lead the life just as we want, pleasing our flesh.   It is a road where no true God exists, but only maybe in our own imagination.  Therefore we are answerable to no-one.  
 
The narrow road is a hard and difficult road, hedged about with many thorns and briars.   It is a road often of isolation, and many afflictions, but it is the only road which leads to God, the Father, through Jesus Christ, the son, who died that those on this narrow road might live forever in His holy presence.    It is a road where its people can be persecuted, because they stand for truth and righteousness.  They have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and brought to faith in Christ, absolutely nothing of themselves.   They have been “born again” spiritually.   The world does not know them, because they are often hidden.   They are not of the world but live to serve the Creator and are loved by God and they love Him in return.

They are in the world but not of the world.   They are often ridiculed and despised, because they offend those on the broad road, wanting their fun and their own way. 
 
This little tract is the truth, and if you are touched in your heart and challenged, then please turn to the Bible, the King James Version, and start reading the gospels.   God is a merciful God and His free grace and mercy can save you if He is leading you to repentance for all your sins.   The Lord Jesus Christ died for sinners, and stood in their place on the Cross of Calvary.  His precious blood cleanses from all sin and He imputes His righteousness to the sinner saved.   Everyone on the narrow road has had the intervention of God in their lives and brought them to repentance and faith, and there is nothing like it.    The Bible says that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ.  
 
“Enter ye in at the strait gate: (the narrow road) for wide is the gate, and broad is the way (the broad/wide road) that leadeth to destruction and many there be which go in thereat:
 
Because strait is the gate (the narrow road) and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life and few there be that find it.”  Matthew 7 v. 13-14.
 
Check out these scriptures yourselves, to confirm what is written.

The Bible is the inspired Word of God to mankind.





ARE YOU HUNGRY AND THIRSTY?
 
No, I do not mean for food and drink, but the spiritual food which only God can give.
 
There are many false gods in this world, and the worst of all is one which you have in your imagination, which suits you.  That particular god is just useless and cannot save anyone, neither can any pagan gods, nor new age teaching.
 
The God I am speaking about is the one true and only God, found alone in the reading or preaching of the Word of God.  The Bible (King James Version) tells you all you need to know about yourself, a sinner, and that Jesus Christ is the only Saviour.
 
If we are being drawn to Him, we start to want to find out the truth, and we develop a hunger and thirst for that truth, then God in His grace and mercy will find you.     We hunger and thirst after Righteousness, and God then promises that we shall be filled.   We are then brought into the light of His glorious gospel and are filled with love for Him.   Our lives are then changed in a wonderful way, for we now only want the truth and the things of God, and the world becomes as nothing to us.  Everything else becomes secondary.
 
  Too many people do not want their lives changed, for they think they are happy as they are, but then they have no light or understanding of what it is to know the Lord.   They are blinded by the god of this world, Satan, who keeps them in darkness.  
 
There are many who profess to be Christians but they have never had a true conversion which can only come from God alone, not by their self-will.   They do not hunger and thirst to love and to know Him.   There are many who are just Religious, who only follow a creed or a church teaching, and never come to a true knowledge of Christ.
 
The Word of God says in Matthew 5 verse 6 “Blessed are they which hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.”  I can vouch that this is so.    Please get a Bible (King James Version) and read it and may God, in His mercy, draw you to Himself.   There is nothing like it, it is a miracle!  Brought from darkness to light!  Born again, from your carnality to a spiritual rebirth.   Now you have eternal life and will spend it with Christ in Heaven.  





WHAT IS YOUR LIFE?

Your life, and mine, is but a vapour and will soon pass away.

We have today, but we may not have tomorrow.   The flowers on the earth bloom in all their beauty, then they soon fade and pass away.
 
We are given a short span of life, for some it will be few, but for others, it will be many, yet still only 70 or 80 years, but it is what happens during that time, which will make all the difference.
 
God is merciful and He will have mercy on whom He will have mercy.  The Father has given a certain number of people to His Son, for whom Christ died for and bore their sins.   That means that they during their lifetime will receive an effectual call to follow Christ, and to love, serve and obey Him.  These are the true Christians on the earth, from whatever country they maybe called, and in whatsoever circumstances God may sovereignly choose.  
 
It is the greatest miracle of all, to be brought from darkness to His marvelous light, and from serving the devil and his works, to the works of righteousness in Christ.    Yes, until this time comes, you and I are serving the devil.   You will say, oh! That is not possible! But in our ignorance, that is what we are doing, in serving self and Satan.  Our greatest enemy in this life is Self, and in serving self and all that it entails, we are serving the god of this world, who is Satan.
 
We can make money our god, or our entertainments, or sport, or any idol we make instead of the true and living God.   We serve only Self, the greatest idol of all.    It is not until God brings us to Himself, that we see our sins clearly and are given the gift of repentance, and come before Him in acknowledging all our sins, for the way we have lived hitherto, and we receive His forgiveness.
 
God can call us as a young person, which is wonderful, for then we have maybe more years of being used of God, and serve Him with all our hearts for longer, or we can be called in middle-age, and regret the years that have been wasted, or even old-age, which is indeed a great miracle, especially if we are close to our death.  Yes, God is no respecter of persons and time is nothing to him.  He is in eternity and we live in time, but then our time will come, when we have no more time.  Then we are ushered into God’s holy presence to give account of everything we have done, and said, in this life.  We are then Judged by Him.   “It is appointed unto men once to die, and after this the Judgment.” Hebrews 9:27
 
God has determined that a certain number of people from every nation, tribe and tongue will come to Him.   The Lord Jesus Christ has paid the penalty for their sins, and suffered the most horrendous death on the cross for them.  What wonderful love is this?   What greater love can anyone have, but that Christ laid down His life for His friends, His people, His sheep.    Christ is the Good Shepherd and He has given His life for His sheep who follow Him wheresoever He goes.  
 
You may ridicule and pour scorn on the Christians you know, for it all seems foolishness to you that they witness for Christ.   You will not realize it at the time, but it is the greatest love that they want to share the truth with you.  
 
It is the Word of God which is the precious seed which brings a needy soul to Christ.  It was the Word which I read back in 1975 which became living and light to me, and changed my life, from being a sinner to a saint.  Yes, we are always sinners, but once the light of Christ, in His power, comes into a life, then the sin is subdued, and the life of Christ is powerfully known and felt.
 
Take time then, to get a King James Bible and ask God to reveal Himself to you, but you need to be a humbled, repentant sinner, for God hates pride.   May His Word speak to you, as it did to me, all those years ago.   No-one is beyond His reach or His grasp. His grace is sufficient for you.  Time is short, so do not waste it.  
 
This tract is sent with Love, that the God of all grace, may reach your heart, and be truly saved,  and you will then live in eternity with Christ.
