Meet My Friend


Full text of gospel tract:

I HAVE A FRIEND
who is always faithful;
who can meet all your needs;
who will never leave you. 
This friend is Jesus Christ.
 
Since I have known him, he has been faithful in all his promises. He is “ . . . the same yesterday and today and forever”(Hebrews 13:8). Through my joys and sorrows he has been a “friend who sticks closer than a brother” (Proverbs 18:24).
I first met him when I read his invitation in the Bible: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). I came to him, and he freed me from my burden of sin and guilt and gave me hope for living.
Daily he meets my needs. He promises, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. . . . Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid” (John 14:27). When I am lonely and worried, I remember his words: “I will not leave you or forsake you” (Joshua 1:5).
I know that even at the hour of death he will remain with me, and one day he will take me to heaven to live with him.
How can you and I be sure of Christ’s love? The Bible says, “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13). We can be assured of his love because he, the sinless Son of God, suffered for our sins on the Cross of Calvary.
We can know that Christ’s love is everlasting. Because he rose from the grave and returned to the Father in heaven, he can say, “I am the first and the last, and the living one. I died, and behold I am alive forevermore” (Revelation 1:17–18).
Yes, we can trust the Lord Jesus as our eternal friend. He invites us: “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me” (Revelation 3:20).
If you have never trusted Jesus as your Savior, invite him into your life today. Follow him and he will never fail you. “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life” (John 5:24).

The Hired Man's Clock by Dale S Marshall


The Hired Man’s Clock is a fictional story demonstrating how the life of one simple, but godly man, even after his death was used by the Lord for His glory. The book is not a true story; it is from the author’s imagination. But it could be factual because most of the incidents were based on happenings he had experienced or had heard of.

The Hired Man’s Clock is a series of stories. Each chapter is complete in itself yet each has connections with the others. In every chapter, some details which seem insignificant become meaningful in others. May the Lord be honoured and may He be glorified through the story of The Hired Man’s Clock.

The story is set in Canada and covers over 80 years, showcasing events and times of different people's lives who all are connected to the clock.

This book is a hard-to-put-down read, very well written and bringing in important Biblical truths and practical Christian living without preaching at the reader. Very enjoyable for youth and adult alike.

Highly recommended reading.

One Day at a Time by William MacDonald



Publisher's Review: That's the way you have to live life- 'One Day At A Time'. But it is how you live each day that makes all the difference. There's no better way to start and finish the day than with an encouraging portion from God's Word. Each daily meditation is just a page long, but with each Scripture presented in a fresh way, William MacDonald stirs your heart to practical devotedness to the Lord. One way to ensure that our days on earth count for God is to fill our minds and hearts with the "engrafted Word" that we might grow by it. This is a book of invigorating meditations on the Scriptures from the crisp, Christ-exalting writings of William MacDonald. These devotionals are not intended to replace the reading of the Word, but to stimulate your thinking in Scripture, and, by God's grace, to help you apply the truth to your daily walk

Other: Excellent for new or young believers. Thought-provoking but yet applicable for day-to-day living. Conservative.

The Value of Trials by Mrs Judson A Elliott



This tender little booklet is a collection of jewels mined in the dark, but how it sparkles in the light! Someone wrote:
“Suffering is so universal, so staggering in its magnitude, the world so unjust, so unsatisfying, life so short and time so fleeting, it seems as if this earthly life was never intended by God to be a place where human happiness could find its fruition.”
But this is the place where, by trials, we can be matured and sweetened to prepare us for our heavenly home. Mrs. Elliott takes us on a journey along the path of divine comfort and shows us the way.

Be Angry and Sin Not by Warren Henderson


From Scripture, we will learn of God’s holy anger, then commence upon the difficult task of aligning our selfish anger and unrighteous behavior with His righteousness. This task will require each of us to honestly evaluate our angry tendencies, to remove internal conditions that frequently induce angry feelings, and to learn techniques to mange our anger in a God-honoring way. If you struggle with mismanaging anger, this book will guide you into better self-control.
Be Angry And Sin Not tackles such questions as:
  • Why am I angry?
  • Should I be angry?
  • How do I control my angry feelings?
  • How can my anger benefit others and serve God?

Living Tabernacle by Rebecca Martin

 Look inside the book

Living Tabernacle is a sequel to Fountain of Life.

Who should Sharon believe? Father warns that Jerusalem and its temple are destined for destruction. But her brother Adam declares that God will never let His temple fall. Is Adam right? Or does Father speak truth when he says that believers are now God’s living tabernacle?
Set in the time of the apostles, this story vividly portrays both the turmoil and the deep peace devout Jews experienced as they grappled with the reality of Jesus the Messiah.
While the story is in harmony with the Biblical account, there is no interaction between the book characters and the Biblical people.

No illustrations.

Fountain of Life by Rebecca Martin




Eli had heard about Jesus' profound teachings and amazing miracles, but he had never seen Jesus. The more he heard, the more he was awed by this man. Was Jesus the Messiah who would deliver the Jews from Rome's oppression? Could he heal Eli's crippled father? How Eli longed to meet Jesus! But he soon learned his admiration was not shared by all. Even some of his own family hated Jesus bitterly.
Eli never did see Jesus on earth. But long after the dark days of the cross and the tomb, Eli discovered something even more wonderful--that Jesus could be found anywhere, any time, by anyone open to receive Him.
Set in New Testament times and including a wealth of information about Jewish life and customs, this is an inspiring story of blossoming faith, seeking and finding the truth, and drinking deeply at the "Fountain of Life."

While the story is in harmony with the Biblical account, there is no interaction between the book characters and the Biblical people.
