Dear Ones in Christ,
Did you get saved the first time you heard the Gospel? If you're like most people, the answer is "no." Most of us had to hear it more than once, and the Lord put us under conviction until we couldn't stand it, and we responded to Him.
Remember, beloved, the people we witness to are just like us. They are busy and taken up with the things of this world. They often have to hear the Gospel several times before they respond.
One man in prison read a Chick tract with no response. Then he was given a variety of tracts. By the time he had read 35 tracts, he broke and gave his heart to the Lord Jesus. His heart was so hard that it took that many to reach him.
I just received a very touching letter from a delighted parent. The four-year-old in the family loved the tract Kidnapped. His folks read it over and over to him for two weeks. After hearing the tract about 25 times, he said, "I'm a liar and I need to fix it." That precious little soul was saved.
So, don't get discouraged if some don't respond when you give them just one tract. Keep up the attack; it's that soul you are after. Eventually the wall will break down and another lost sheep can get saved.
Your brother in Christ,
