Gospel tracts are a great way to share the gospel when you don’t have the time or avenue to have a conversation with a person. They also give you the ability to share the gospel with the masses at large events. They multiply your efforts as they can speak when you are not even there!
Charles Spurgeon has been quoted saying “When preaching and private talk are not available, you need to have a tract ready…get good striking tracts, or none at all…therefore, do not go out without your tracts.” Charles Spurgeon, the prince of preachers, is saying that sometimes it may not be appropriate to share the gospel through preaching, and the circumstances may not be ideal to engage in a private conversation about the gospel. In those cases, use a good gospel tract. I can only assume that Spurgeon would want a gospel tract that contains a clear, concise, biblical gospel tract that contained both the bad news that sin is breaking God’s law and the punishment for it is death and eternity in hell, and of course, the good news that Jesus Christ suffered and died on the cross to pay the price for sinners who would believe in Him.
Why should Christians use Gospel tracts? The short answer is “Christians should use Gospel tracts, because God uses Gospel tracts.” The Apostle Paul said, “To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some” (1 Corinthians 9:22). If the Apostle Paul meant “by all means,” he surely would have used gospel tracts as a means to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with all, that some might be saved. Renowned evangelist Billy Graham says and I do agree with him when he said of Gospel Tracts: “Nothing surpasses a tract for sowing the seed of the Good News.” Here’s ten more reasons to use Gospel tracts to share the gospel of Jesus with others:
