If We Plant the Seed, God Will Give The Increase
A caller said that he was up in Michigan, at a crossroads in his life. He was in the middle of nowhere and decided to go into a restaurant. He was thinking of committing suicide. He went into the bathroom and found a copy of the Chick tract, No Fear. He read it and recognized that the love of God was reaching out to him that day. That was a turning point in his life. He accepted the Lord.
“Recently I stopped at a sub shop for lunch and left a copy of Somebody Loves Me in my booth. On my way out, a worker called me back, waving the tract in her hand. She asked me if it was mine and I told her that I had left it there to share the good news of Jesus. Tears welled up in her eyes as she confessed to having thoughts of suicide. I motioned her to sit down and she prayed there with me to dedicate her life to Christ!”
“Just a testimony to let you know Chick tracts get results. I came across a girl named Carrie. She was very depressed and ready to commit suicide. I had a copy of Trust Me which I gave to her and witnessed to her. She accepted the Lord and changed her mind about ending it all. Praise God!”
“Years ago I was a practicing sodomite. I had 12 years of Catholic school and, although I was not active in the Roman Catholic Church, it was the source of everything I’d heard about Jesus. With this sort of foundation perhaps it should not have been surprising that I fell in with a group in college that encouraged homosexuality and as I “experimented,” believing I’d found my natural “orientation” while I practiced various perversions. I presented myself as a very happy, confident, and free person, but in reality thought constantly of suicide.
To this day I do not know who started leaving Chick tracts in my “in-box” at work. At first I read them just for amusement but before long they forced me to question my beliefs. With the impetus from these tracts and some loving Christian friends, I became saved. I thank God every day for that anonymous tract donor who led me to Jesus before I got AIDS, and more importantly, before I died without salvation. It is embarrassing to talk about my past, but if I can save one person by showing them there is a way out of homosexual behavior, it will be well worth it.”
“For twenty-three years I was a Roman Catholic. I prayed to the Virgin Mary as a habit and went to confession regularly for the same reason. My life went downward as I got involved in drugs and spiritism. Physically and mentally I was getting worse by the day. I had thoughts of committing suicide at age of 23. Suddenly a young man gave me a tract called This Was Your Life. In the days that followed I gave my heart to Jesus Christ and I received His peace, joy and became partaker of a sure hope.”
