I have come to see how little I use eternal perception in handing out tracts. When there is time for a longer conversation about the gospel or a preaching opportunity I always include it. I’ve just got stuck in the mode of “Hi, did you get one of these? Its a gospel tract.” I think I can improve by sharing with the person getting the tract something like “Hi, did you get one of these? Its a gospel tract. There is nothing more important than your eternal destination, please read this carefully!”
That is a very quick and efficient way of bringing to mind in people an eternal perception. Other alternatives might be”
- None of us know how much time we have on earth. Look into what happens when you die
- Do you know if you died today if you would go to heaven or hell?
- You will be confronted with the eternal realities of heaven and hell when you die, know your destination.
- Its so important that you examine the reality of your eternal destination. You can discover if it will be heaven or hell.
I realise that I can improve my tract handouts by adding a short statement to prick people’s minds about heaven and hell. The following link is about a man who did this simple thing to 10 people every day for several years. As you listen, be inspired by God’s faithfulness in using a simple witness.
