Halloween is the time for "trick or treat." But did you know that every day you are being offered a trick far worse than a prank and a treat far better than candy?
Don't Be Tricked!
Sin can trick you. Have you ever thought that the people who are doing all the bad things are having all the fun? Don’t be tricked! Sin is like a fishing lure: it may look great on the outside, but there’s a hook on the inside! Many people today are tricked into thinking that doing bad things is fine. However, the Bible tells us that “the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23).
Other people can trick you. Lots of people have different ideas about what is right and what is wrong. That’s why God tells us, “Let no man deceive you with vain [empty] words” (Ephesians 5:6). Remember: if it’s not in the Bible, it’s probably a trick, and will lead you down the wrong road!
You can even trick yourself. Some people try to tell themselves, “It doesn’t matter what I believe, just so I believe something.” That may sound nice, but it’s a trick! The Bible says, “The heart is deceitful above all things” (Jeremiah 17:9). Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me” (John 14:6).
Here's The Truth!
God will never trick you. Unlike all the other things we have looked at, we know that “God … cannot lie” (Titus 1:2). Instead of telling us a lie, God’s Word points out that “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). You see, our sin makes us dirty like a pair of shoes that have walked through the mud. And just like we can’t walk through our own houses with muddy shoes, we can’t get into Heaven—which is God’s house—until our sin has been washed away.
God loves you. In fact, “God is love” (1 John 4:8,16). No one could ever love you as much as God does. And even though you’ve done bad things, He still loves you. That’s why He has done the only thing that could ever wash your sins away. He sent His Son, Jesus Christ—who had never done even one wrong thing—to go to the Cross to suffer and die for your sins and mine. God showed that Jesus had fully paid sin’s debt by bringing Him back to life three days later. Now you can have your sins washed away by receiving what He has done for you. “As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name” (John 1:12).
God calls you. Salvation from sin is a free gift, but we must receive it. All you need to do is tell God that you know you are a sinner, believe that Jesus died for you on the Cross, and trust Him to be your Savior and Lord. God will hear you no matter where you are or what words you use. Then you will have the best treat of all—forgiveness of all your sins and eternal life with Him in heaven! “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life” (John 3:36).
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.
