Maybe it’s the Mom in me, but I really like things to be clean. I think you would probably agree that whether it’s our house, our clothes, or even our car, we feel better once things are washed and put in order.
We can spend a lot of time, effort, and money making sure the things around us are spotless. But how often do you and I evaluate our heart and conscience to see if we are clean on the inside?
Are you clean?
Have you ever stopped to think about how God sees you? The Bible tells us that God “seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7). When He looks at your heart—at the real you—what does He see? He has inspected the words, deeds, and thoughts of every person and reached the conclusion that: “There is none righteous, no, not one … all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:10,23).
You may be saying, “How could God think I am not clean? I’m basically a good person. I’ve never hurt anybody.” But what we need to realize is that our definition of “clean” is not the same as God’s. No matter how hard we try to be decent and moral, “we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags” (Isaiah 64:6). Unless we are made perfectly spotless, we cannot stand in God’s holy presence (Revelation 21:27).
Who can make us clean?
If you have kids, have you ever asked them to clean their room—or the mess they made in the kitchen—only to be disappointed with the results? To get the job done right, we have to step in. That’s a picture of what God has done for us. He knows that we can’t make ourselves clean, so in His great love and mercy He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem and rescue us.
Jesus, who was declared to be “a lamb without blemish and without spot” (1 Peter 1:19), was uniquely qualified to pay the penalty for our sin. The sinless One became sin for us when He suffered and died on the cross. Jesus “bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness” (1 Peter 2:24). He “loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood” (Revelation 1:5).
Do you want to be clean?
Only God can wash away the dirt and filth and stain of sin. Listen to His offer: “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool” (Isaiah 1:18).
The Bible tells us: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). Jesus did all the work for you when He died on the cross and rose again. All you need to do is accept the free gift He offers. Put your trust in Jesus Christ today.
“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out” (Acts 3:19).
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. Please note that due to differences in devices and browsers, your finished tracts may not look exactly like the preview. All imprints are reviewed by our designers for content and style before printing.
Do I Have to Enter My Imprint Over and Over? Nope. If you are ordering multiple tracts with the same imprint, you can enter all of the details with the first tract, and then enter "same" on Line 1 for the others. Likewise, if you have ordered imprinted tracts in the past and want to use the same information, simply enter "same as before." All orders are carefully reviewed, and we will link everything together for you.
