Broken Law Gospel Tract - 4" x 6"
Back says: Have you ever noticed when you are on the road that people tend to ignore the speed limit? A person thinks “Well, every-body else is doing it, I’m just going with the flow. It’ll be okay, it’s just a few miles over the speed limit.” But then you see a highway patrol man. You glance at your speedometer. Your heart races in fear of getting a ticket. You no longer feel secure in the fact that other people are also speeding; you know that you are personally as guilty as the next guy. Suddenly, your few miles over doesn’t seem like such a small thing after all. Likewise, many people think breaking God’s law is trivial. The Bible says it is appointed unto man once to die, and after this the judgment. You have a God-given conscience (kind of like a speedometer) that tells you right from wrong. And you know when you’re “over the limit.” You may take comfort in the fact that everyone is doing the same things, but you personally will have to give an account of your life. So how will you do? Are you a good person? Have you kept the Ten Commandments? Let’s find out. Have you ever lied (even once)? Ever stolen anything (value is irrelevant)? Jesus said lusting is the same as adultery (Matthew 5:28) and hatred is the same as murder (1 John 3:15). Guilty of these? James 2:10 says “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” So then if you’re honest you’d be a lying, thieving, adulterous, murderer at heart. That’s how God sees you. You will be guilty on Judgment Day and end up in hell. It no longer matters what other people are doing. It’s between God and you. God says He will not hold him blameless who takes his name in vain. And all liars, thieves, and adulterers will have their part in the lake of fire, which burns forever (Rev 21:8). It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God (Heb 10:31). You should be terrified. Your sin is not trivial, it is treason against the most high God! You will never be able to do enough good to make up for your sins. Picture this: You’re in a courtroom for committing crimes and you have $500,000 fine, but you don’t have the money, so you’re being taken to prison. Just then, someone walks in the courtroom and pays your fine! You can go free, not because you did good things but because your fine was paid. 2,000 years ago God became a man. His name was Jesus, and he lived a perfect life fulfilling God’s law. Jesus died on the cross as a payment for sin. You broke the law and Jesus paid the fine. Jesus was buried and 3 days later he arose from the dead proving he has power to forgive sinners of their sin. Jesus commands that you repent (turn from your sins) and that put your faith in him. He is the only one who can save you from the wrath to come. You need righteousness on the Day of Judgment, not happiness, not a better life, but a right standing before God almighty. Your sins need to be forgiven, your guilt needs to be removed, your soul needs to be cleansed, and it comes only through the shed blood of Jesus Christ! Repent and trust in him!
