A Fisherman's Last Voyage by Graham Mair

The north-east of Scotland not only has a tradition of fishing but also of a ready response to the preaching of salvation through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. The hazardous nature of fishing in the stormy waters of the North Sea combined with deep piety produced men who not only walked but sailed with God. The author of this book is able to write from his own experience both as a former fisherman and as a man deeply committed to his Saviour. The book is chiefly about his father, William Mair, from when, in his teens, he not only started on his lifelong career fishing but also as a believer in Christ, until his eventual homecall. Fortunately, he kept a diary, which the author has mined to great effect. The author also deals with the spiritual history of that part of Scotland, especially the revivals which periodically occurred and which had such an impact on the people there.

The Bridge to Life


Full text of gospel tract:

God loves us and wants us to experience life with Him

The Bible says, “We have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love.” 1 John 4:16
“I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10

But our sin separates us from God

“Your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear.” Isaiah 59:2
“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” “The wages of sin is death.” Romans 3:23; 6:23

Jesus died for us and rose again, paying the penalty for our sin

Nothing we can do (good deeds, religion, prayers) will remove our sin and bridge the gap. The only way back to God is through Jesus Christ.
“Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit.” 1 Peter 3:18
“God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
“By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” John 14:6

Will you turn to God and place your trust in Jesus Christ?

Knowing what Jesus did for you is important, but that knowledge will do you no good unless you repent (turn from your way to God’s way) and put your faith (total trust) in Jesus Christ as Savior.
“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.” Romans 10:9
