This package comes with 25 tracts and uses verses from the New American Standard version of the Bible. Each tract reads as follows:
1. God's Purpose:
Honor and Serve Him
GOD CREATED MAN TO HONOR, SERVE, AND FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM. THE BIBLE SAYS...
"Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created."
"Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God."
I Corinthians 10:31
"You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever."
If God's purpose is for mankind to honor, serve, and fellowship with Him, then what happened that destroyed this perfect relationship?
2. Mankind's Problem: Sin
MAN CHOSE TO SIN AGAINST GOD RATHER THAN SERVE HIM. THE BIBLE SAYS...
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
What does it mean to sin against God?
Sin is breaking God's law (I John 3:4).
We sin by doing what God has commanded us not to do or by not doing what God has told us to do.
3. Sin's Penalty: Death
THE BIBLE SAYS...
"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
When man chose to disobey God, the result was death. The basic meaning of death is separation. The Bible teaches that there are three types of death, or separation, that result from sin.
Spiritual death separates a person from the life of God (Ephesians 2:1).
Physical death separates a person's soul from his or her body (Hebrew 9:27).
Eternal death separates a person, both soul and body, from God forever in Hell (Revelation 20:15).
4. Then how can we ever have eternal life?
THROUGHOUT HISTORY INDIVIDUALS HAVE TRIED MANY WAYS TO GAIN OR EARN ETERNAL LIFE, BUT EVERY ATTEMPT HAS BEEN UNSUCCESSFUL. THE BIBLE SAYS...
"There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death."
"He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy,"
