Many people speak reverently of the Ten Commandments. They display them, memorize them, and try to live by them. But if we think of the Ten Commandments as only “a pattern for life” or “the moral foundation of society,” we are missing the point entirely.
What is their purpose?
The Ten Commandments are part of what the Bible calls “the law,” and their true purpose is revealed in Romans 3:19-20: “That every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified [declared righteous] in His sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.”
The Ten Commandments prove to us that we fall short of God’s holy standard. In short: they teach us that we are sinners.
Have you kept them?
Can you honestly say that you have not violated even one of the Ten Commandments? Sure, some of them are easier to keep than others, but do you set aside one day a week—every week—to honor God? Have you ever dishonored your parents? Do you steal time from an employer by checking your phone? Have you downloaded things you didn’t pay for? Have you ever used God’s name in a cursing or careless way? When was the last time you saw something and wished you had it? Each of these breaks one of the Ten Commandments.
Guilty of One, Guilty of All
James 2:10 tells us that in God’s eyes, “Whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” This means that if you have ever broken just one of the commandments, you are as guilty of being a sinner as one who has broken all ten of them.
We try to justify ourselves with thoughts of “I do this” and “I’ve never done that,” but the truth is that we are all sinners. “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). I fear for anyone who thinks they can stand before God some day and convince Him that they deserve Heaven because of their righteousness. If you think you are “good enough,” then you’ve never honestly examined yourself against God’s Word!
The End of The Law
The good news is that “Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth” (Romans 10:4). All of the efforts of sinners like you and me could never take away a single sin. But Jesus Christ, the sinless Son of God, “put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself” (Hebrews 9:26).
Through His death on Calvary’s cross and glorious resurrection, Jesus has opened the way to Heaven. When we turn to God and put our trust in Jesus Christ, a wonderful transaction takes place—our sin is washed away and His righteousness is applied on our account (2 Corinthians 5:21).
So many people are “ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness” (Romans 10:3). What about you? Have you seen the hopelessness of trying to live up to God’s standard? Have you cast yourself upon His mercy and asked Him to save you?
Call out to God and put your trust in Jesus today!

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.
