Memorial Day Tracts
You may know someone who has died in the service of our country. Almost every city has a monument to remind us that many of the things we enjoy were won for us by someone’s painful and bloody death.
Of all the sacrifices ever given on our behalf, none has surpassed the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. The only Son of God left his heavenly home to be born as a baby. After his brief ministry, he took upon himself our punishment and willingly suffered an agonizing death and separation from his heavenly Father in order that all who believe may come into the family of God and reign with him.
With his death and resurrection, Jesus ushered in a new world order. God’s reign is breaking forth into our world and nothing can stop him. Each day as we march towards the end of history God is claiming more and more lost territory.
And that is the reason I am giving this tract to you. I want to invite you to join me in this awesome event. If you give your life to Jesus and his Father’s work, you will never be the same. Every part of your life will change as you begin to see what Jesus is doing to prepare the world for his spectacular return. This is a far greater issue than being religious or belonging to a church or being a good person. This is an invitation to leave your old life behind and follow Jesus. It is so radical, the Bible calls it being “Born Again”.
Now you have to make a decision: To live out your remaining days in pursuit of money and pleasure; or to open your life to the reality of a living Jesus, to accept his sacrifice for you, and to join him in the march to a new world. Don’t put if off—this is too good an opportunity to pass by.
If you are ready, tell God. Ask him to open your eyes to what he is doing. Tell him that you are ready to accept Jesus’ sacrifice for you, and ask Jesus to lead you into this new life.
Of all the sacrifices ever given on our behalf,
none has surpassed the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
