Your birthday is a special day that is all about you. It’s a time of fun and celebration—a day to enjoy special treats and open presents.
How Many Birthdays?
How many birthdays have you had? I don’t mean how many times have you blown out candles or gotten a year older. I mean, how many times have you been born? You see, even if you celebrate your birthday 5 times, 10 times, or even 100 times, it’s just one birthday—the day that you were born into the world.
Jesus talked about being born, and said that it was important to have two birthdays: one physical birthday, and one spiritual birthday. He told a man named Nicodemus that he needed to be born again. Jesus said to him, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3). You might be wondering what Jesus meant—don’t feel bad, Nicodemus wondered, too.
Born Two Times?
What does it mean to be born again? It has to do with spiritual life. Each of us enters this world as a sinner. Sin is doing bad things and things that are not what God wants us to do. The Bible says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Our sin keeps us from God.
The Bible goes on to say that we are all spiritually “dead in trespasses and sins” (Ephesians 2:1). This is why being born again is absolutely necessary if you want to spend eternity with God in Heaven.
The Good News
Being born again is all about having our sins washed away and receiving new life from God. How can we do that? The good news is that God loves us so much that He sent His Son (Jesus) to take away our sins and give us new life. “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” (John 3:16).
When Jesus died on the cross, He took the punishment that we deserve for all of the bad things that we have done (and will do) during our lives. Then He rose from the dead to prove that he can save us and give us eternal life.
What About You?
Have you had your second birthday? If you’re not sure, now is the time to confess that you are a sinner, believe that Jesus died on the cross for you, and put your total trust in Jesus to take you to Heaven. When you do that, it’s your second birthday! God promises that when you call out to Him and accept His free gift of salvation, He will take away your sins, give you new life, and someday take you to Heaven to live with Him.
“The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
“Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).
Happy birthday, yes two!
Only one will not do.
Trust Christ as your Savior,
And then you’ll have two!

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.
How Do I Order Imprinted Tracts? When ordering a tract, select the "Add Imprinting" option and fill in the fields that appear. A live preview will be generated so you can see what your imprint will look like.
