Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
Have you noticed what is happening to free speech in our country?
It’s eroding. Guess why. Evil was allowed to prevail because good people did nothing.
Many Christians have looked on and done nothing for decades, told that “lifestyle evangelism,” rather than preaching the gospel, is what will win the world for Christ. But it didn’t.
What did God say? “For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.” (1 Corinthians 1:21)
God did not choose another method. God never needs to modernize. “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever” (Hebrews 13:8).
God gave Jack Chick the idea to engage people in a story and before it was done, introduced them to the preaching of the Lord Jesus Christ. Many have been saved this way.
Chick tracts are God’s missionaries, with God’s words of scripture as their power, and the story and pictures as a hook to get them to read it. Chick tracts give us an easy way to preach!
Even if we lose a debate with an unsaved person, but a tract is received, then we win! God’s missionary has gone home with him or her. Later, in a quiet spot, the Lord can have an appointment with that precious soul.
Our rights are eroding right before our eyes. But we don’t have to accept defeat. Maybe now is actually the hour of victory, if we will be faithful to preach the gospel. God may just turn the page on history and produce revival. We will never know unless we act in faith right now.
In Christ Jesus, and for His service,
