Dear ones in Christ,
When you’re 90 years old like I am, creaky and wobbly, you can praise God you made it through another night. Even though everything hurts, we’ve still got one job to be done—trying to win souls for our Master. By God’s grace all of the new tracts for 2015 have been written and illustrated. And 2016 is underway.
I spend so much time drawing that my back flares up. So I have to visit my chiropractor from time to time. On my first visit, about 15 years ago, I gave tracts to his nurses. On every visit I have brought them new goodies (tracts). One of the ladies was grateful and excited every time I handed her one.
Well, yesterday the old back was on fire again. It was time for another treatment. So I picked up Halloween tracts for the ladies. The one who was always looking forward to my visit ushered me into the waiting room. I asked her, “Have you ever prayed the suggested prayer in the back of the tracts?” She froze. Her face became almost tragic, then frightened. Then she replied, “No.”
I said, “Don’t you realize how close we are to the Lord’s returning?” She was almost shaking and said, “Yes.” Just then the doctor walked in and she had to leave. I hope she will consider what I said, take that step and trust Christ for her salvation.
Will I give up on that lady? No way! I know what she faces. My worst fear is for her to go into a Christless grave. Like a tsunami, billions are being swept into hell. I work 10 hours a day, six days a week, trying to reach souls. We must all do our part. Remember, “…he that winneth souls is wise.” (Proverbs 11:30).
I can’t retire! We are at war, beloved.
Your brother in Christ,
