Download tract: Here
This tract starts out by introducing three things everyone longs for, but which the world cannot provide:
a. True rest (Scripture on front page, cited from Matthew 11:28),
b. Truth (introduced by citing from John 14:6 and John 18:37),
c. Love (citing from John 15:13).
Question: “Why are we not the kind of people described by the above verses, even though we all want to be?”
Answer: “Because we are all descendants of the first Adam (who decided to disobey God).”
This answer is followed by a short explanation of man’s sinful nature – our disability to conquer sin on our own (based on citations from Psalm 51:5, Ecclesiastes 7:20 and Romans 7:15, 19).
Question: “What (or Who) can help us, if we no longer want to be cut off from God because of our sin?”
Answer: “The answer lies in a principle God Himself spelled out in the book of Leviticus (17:11), saying: ‘…for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.’ And we remember this principle every year at Passover when we read what God said: ‘…when I see the blood, I will pass over you’ (Exodus 12:13).” It is the principle of the substitute – “life for life”.
The tract then states to Whom all the sacrifices (which make up such a major part of the Old Covenant) were pointing: To the Messiah – God’s own perfect and all-sufficient sacrifice for sin. This statement is supported by referring to Daniel 9:24-27, the prophecy that foretold that the Messiah would be “cut off” by a violent death shortly before the destruction of the Temple with its sacrificial system. This prophecy was fulfilled to the letter by the Lord Jesus.
The message then points to Jesus as the source of the true rest, truth and love everyone is longing for, and it ends by citing John 3:16.
Finally, the reader is invited to turn to Jesus the Messiah in prayer and ask for forgiveness of his/her sins.
