Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
It’s been a strange year.
People are mysteriously dropping dead or into comas, having sudden blood clots and other serious issues, even right in the middle of their daily activities. Sports players are falling down and dying during game time. This kind of thing has happened in centuries past, and even occasionally in modern times, but nothing like what we are seeing now.
This is the prime time to ask people that all-important question: Do you know where you are going when you die? Eternity is just a heartbeat away —literally. Thousands are finding out. On average, 60 million people die each year. That’s more than the population of California and New York combined. And that’s normal. But now, people are dying at unexpected times.
It’s a lie that we have “all the time in the world.” We don’t. We cannot even be guaranteed tomorrow. But we can be sure about what happens after we die. There are only two destinations: heaven and hell.
And that’s why it is so important to get a clear gospel tract into their hands that they will read. In it is their chance for forgiveness, peace with God and an eternal destination of joy. But they must know the way!
“…how shall they hear without a preacher?” (Romans 10:14). We can tell them with a Chick tract! Then they’ll have that chance for eternal life clearly before them. It’s worth a moment of our time, and in eternity —many will thank us.
In Christ Jesus, and for His service,
