This time of year, we see pumpkins everywhere, and many people like to turn them into jack-o'-lanterns by carving a funny or scary face. Carving a pumpkin can be a lot of fun.
Have you ever made a jack-o’-lantern? If you have, then you know that the first step is to find just the right pumpkin. This can be hard, because pumpkins are all very different. They can be big or small, skinny or round, and even come in different colors. But all pumpkins have two things in common: a tough outside, and a slimy inside filled with seeds.
In some ways, we’re just like pumpkins!
Just like a pumpkin, we have an outside and an inside. The outside is our body, the part that we can see when we look in the mirror. The other part of us, which we can't see, is our spirit and soul. These parts, which make us who we are, cannot be seen with our eyes. But God, who made us, can see past what we can see and look at every part of us. The Bible says, “O Lord, Thou hast searched me, and known me” (Psalm 139:1).
What does God see when He looks inside us?
A pumpkin is filled with yucky, slimy, pumpkin goo. When God looks at us, He sees that we are filled with the bad things we have done. These bad things are called sin. The Bible says, “all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Our sin separates us from God, and keeps us out of Heaven.
How can we be made clean?
Just like we can scoop out the yucky inside of a pumpkin to make a jack-o’-lantern, God can take away all of the sin inside us and make us clean. How can He do this? God loves us so much that He sent His perfect Son, Jesus Christ, to take the punishment for our sins.
Jesus died on the cross to take away our sins, and then rose back to life three days later. This proves that He is the Son of God and has the power to make us clean! “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).
What’s the next step?
Romans 10:9 teaches us that “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” This means that all you need to do is:
1) Admit to God that you are a sinner.
2) Believe that Jesus died for you and rose again.
3) Ask God to save you, and trust that He will!
When you put your trust in Jesus Christ, God takes away your sin and makes you a new person (2 Corinthians 5:17). He also puts His light in you so you can shine brightly for Jesus!
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your
Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).
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.
