Need Tracts Today? Want Just a Couple?

All of our tracts are now available for download and your printing. You’ll find a download link for each tract on our website page for that tract as well as here. We’ve spent a lot of time getting them ready for you to be able to print them out on your own printer as efficiently as possible. The 8½" x 11" paper size (labeled “Ltr” in the tables below) is the most common in the U.S. and Canada, while the A4 size is more widely available in the U.K., Australia and many other countries. There’s a handy printing instructions guide below that explains how to set up your own printing.

If you want a few tracts today, you can feel free to print them out. You may print in larger quantities too, but we think you’ll find our professionally printed tracts less expensive, high quality and certainly less time-consuming. In short, at $.035 each for color tracts and even less than that for standard tracts in quantity, we think they represent good stewardship of both your time and money.

chose to send Jesus to die for sinners like me.

I did what you told me, and afterwards I fell down at God’s feet and asked Him to forgive my sins, because Jesus died for me, and He did. And now I am happy—oh! so happy—and though the devil still comes sometimes to tempt me with my old thoughts and to ask me what reason I have to think God has forgiven me, I have always managed to get him away by telling him that I do not want to judge things by my own reason, but by God’s Word, and that the only reason why I know I’m forgiven is that for Christ’s sake, God chooses to pardon me.” The young man’s face radiated joy and peace. An Essential Lesson The first lesson a sinner has to learn is to trust in the Lord and not to his own understanding— to trust God not only for what he does understand and for what is explained, but for what he does not understand and for what is not explained. This is faith, and such faith honors God and saves the soul. This is receiving the kingdom of God as a little child, and unless we receive the kingdom of God as a little child, we cannot enter in. “God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

ome time ago, after the conclusion of one of Mr. Brownlow North’s addresses, a young man came into the room where he was receiving persons for private conversation and said to him: “I have heard you preach three times, sir, and I neither care for you nor your preaching unless you can tell me why did God permit sin.” “I will do that with pleasure” was the immediate reply. “Because He chose to.” The young man, apparently taken by surprise, stood speechless, and Mr. North again replied: “Because He chose to, and if you continue to question and criticize God’s dealings and arrogantly claim to be smarter than His Word, I will tell you something more that God will do: He will someday put you into hell fire. It’s useless for you to fight with your Maker—you cannot resist Him. And neither your opinion of His dealings nor your blasphemous expression of them will in the least lessen the pain of your everlasting damnation, which, I repeat, will most certainly be yours if you go on in your present spirit. There were questioners like you in St. Paul’s time, and how did the Apostle answer them? ‘Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God’ (Romans 9:20).” The young man here interrupted Mr. North and said, “Is there such a text as that in the Bible?” Whatever God Chooses “Yes, there is,” was the reply, “in the ninth chapter of Romans, and I recom-

mend you to go home and read that chapter. And after you have read it and seen there how God claims for Himself the right to do whatever He chooses, without letting the created say to the Creator, ‘Why hast Thou made me thus?’ (Romans 9:20), remember that, besides permitting sin, there is another thing God has chosen to do— God chose to send Jesus. Of His own free and sovereign grace God gave His only begotten Son to die in the place of sinners, so that, though they are sinners and have done things worthy of death, not one of them shall ever be cast into hell for his sins, who will accept Jesus as his only Saviour and believe in Him and rest in His Word. I have no time to say more to you now; others are waiting to see me. Go home, consider what I’ve told you and may God the Holy Spirit bless it for Jesus Christ’s sake.” An Excellent Result This conversation took place on Sunday evening. On the following Friday, Mr. North was sitting in a friend’s living room, when the servant announced that a young man wanted to speak to him. On being shown upstairs, he said, “Do you remember the young man who on Sunday night asked you to tell him, ‘Why did God permit sin?’ ” “Yes, perfectly.” “Well, sir, I’m that young man, and you said that God permitted sin because He chose to, and you told me to go home and read the ninth chapter of Romans, and also that God
