The boy was out of breath when he rushed through the door of the animal shelter on that hot summer day. "My dog!" he cried. "Is he here? My dog started chasing after something when we were taking a walk, and I couldn't keep up with him, and now I don't even know if he's alive." The manager offered to show him through the area where the dogs were kept, and the boy anxiously peered into every cage until, at last, his heart leaped with joy and he yelled, "There he is; he's alive!"
The manager was very glad for the boy, but had to explain that since the dog didn't have a license, someone would have to pay for one before the dog would be allowed to go home with him. The boy asked how much money it would take, and finding out that it was much more than what he had, became determined to work until the fee could be paid, no matter what it took. Every day, he returned to visit his dog and to make sure that he was cared for.
After a couple of weeks had passed, the boy entered the animal shelter and carefully placed his money on the counter. "It's here, sir; every penny." Before long, everything was in order and the dog, who was very happy to be out of his cage, was going home with the boy, who was also very happy to be with his dog again. As they walked home, the boy said: "Now you're doubly mine! You were mine when you were a pup, and now I've paid for you, too. And I'm never letting you go."
This little story illustrates the love of Jesus for us. Because He is the Creator, we are rightfully His even before we are born. However, we are also just like the dog in the story, and often spend our lives chasing after things that we cannot keep and that only end up taking us farther and farther from God.
Just as the dog ended up in a cage with no way of getting itself out, we are all bound by sin and Satan (Romans 6:17; 2 Corinthians 4:4) and cannot save ourselves. But because Jesus loves us, He came from heaven and willingly went to Calvary's cross where He bore the punishment for our sins by dying in our place, paying the price so that we can go free (1 Peter 2:24; 1 Corinthians 6:20). He then rose from the dead and went back to heaven (Acts 1:1-11).
Those of us who love the Lord Jesus Christ and have accepted Him as our Saviour can say that we are "doubly His"! We are His because He created us and gave us life, and His because He has bought us with His own precious blood. The price has already been paid; all that's left for you to do is come to Him. This means that you need to stop running away from Him, trying to pretend that He does not exist or that He does not care about you. It also means turning to Him, believing that He died for you and rose again. It means realizing that you cannot free yourself from your cage of sin and trusting Christ to take away your sins and set you free.
Are you "doubly His"? If not, hear Him speaking to you as you read the following verses from the Bible. Confess to Him that you are a hopeless sinner, and trust Him as your Saviour right now. Then you will know what it is to be "doubly His," a true child of God. He will be your greatest Friend for the rest of your life and some day will take you home to heaven to be with Him forever.
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him" (John 3:16,36).
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Romans 10:13).
We can add your custom imprint to individual titles of Gospel Tracts, as well as our Calendar Cards. Please note that Tract Assortments, Poems, Mini Tracts, booklets, and some Believers Tracts cannot be imprinted.
How Much Does Tract Imprinting Cost? The imprinting charge is $4 per pack for tracts. There are no setup fees or minimum or maximum quantity limits, so when you order an imprinted item, feel free to order as few or as many copies as you want.
How Much Does Calendar Card Imprinting Cost? To order imprinted calendar cards, locate the special Personalized item in the Calendar Cards category. The imprinting charges are already built into this item; there are no other extra charges or fees.
How Long Will It Take to Get My Imprinted Items? Tract imprints of about 3,000 copies or less (per title) only require 2-3 business days for printing. Tract imprints of 3,000 or more copies (per title) usually require 2-3 weeks for printing. Imprinted calendar cards are usually shipped in about 1 week.
Where Does My Imprint Go? Every tract has a reserved space on the back (approximately 1" tall x 3" wide) for imprinting (see picture at right). The calendar card has a reserved space on the calendar side (beside the year). Your imprint will go in this space.
How Much Text Can My Imprint Include? There is room for up to 5 lines of text on Gospel Tracts (4 lines on calendar cards), with approximately 40 characters per line. Adding more text would require the text to be so small that we don't recommend it.
Can I Add A Logo or Image? Yes, you can upload your own custom logo or image. Remember that adding an image to your imprint reduces the amount of room available for text, and you should limit your text accordingly.
