Session 4: Gospel Tracts
Using gospel tracts is one of the easiest ways to witness.
When handing out gospel tracts, always say something. Saying something
will make people more receptive to taking the tract. For example,
the man on George street would say, "Excuse me sir. Are
you saved? If you die tonight are you going to heaven?"
Ray Comfort, of Way of the Master, suggests offering someone a
tract and saying, "Excuse me. Do you have one of these?"
Last May I was on Old Arbat Street in Moscow (Russia). I don't
speak Russian, so my only option for witnessing was to hand out
gospel tracts. I had noticed Russians attempting to hand out advertising
flyers without much success. Few people would take them. So I tried
something different. One of the few Russian words I know is the
word for "good evening". As people walked by I'd smile
at them, say "good evening" in Russian, and offer them
a tract. Eight out of ten people took the tract. A smile and a pleasant
word make a big difference!
Are gospel tracts an effective way of witnessing? Yes. In the video
you heard how effective they can be. A survey of Christians showed
that 51% of Christians said their first contact with the gospel
was through a gospel tract.
