Using Gospel tracts as a witnessing tool – Do you use any kind of witnessing tract to witness to people?
Using Gospel tracts as a witnessing tool
I have used the Are You A Good Person? tract from the Way of the Master. I even printed mine off in color, they stand out better than in Black and White. I also got to where I just lay them in random places where someone will see them.
I even tried using different color paper and types (as you can see in the picture on this post). So far I see that card stock works the best. Since I am a graphic designer, I took the file that you can download from Way of the Master and allowed more room for the folding so that way if it prints off, still can be folded better.
Do you use any gospel tracts? What gospel tracts to you use and why?
I have several tracts that I have been given before. I do like this tract of all the ones I have been given so far.
Don’t have any gospel tracts to give out? Don’t worry there are places that will send them to you for free.

Giving a tract to someone regardless if you get to talk to them or not, puts the Gospel at least in their hands. So you are planting a seed. Carrying a tract shows we care for the salvation of others. We are Christians should be concerned for the salvation of the lost. God wants to see all people go to Heaven, so should we.
