Tract – The Best Gift (NKJV)
Package of 20 tracts
Looking for the best gift to give this Christmas? This tract encourages readers to accept God’s perfect gift of eternal life through His Son. Verse quotations from the New King James Version (NKJV).
Once again it is the season for the giving of gifts. In the atmosphere of secrecy, love and thoughtfulness combine to plan surprises of delight. The home is aglow with fervent expectancy, as something desired – something needed – is carefully selected, wrapped and hidden away until the day arrives. In it all, however, there is a fresh reminder of God’s eternal plan of love to meet the dire need of man’s soul, and provide THE BEST GIFT to completely satisfy and delight his heart. This is the gift of unspeakable worth. This is God’s gift of eternal life (Romans 6:23).
The Gift Promised
As soon as our first parents sinned, the Lord God came down to them in the garden of Eden to search them out. After bringing them to confession, He gave the first promise of a coming Deliverer in the Person of the Seed of the woman (Genesis 3:15). As the years passed, the words concerning the coming Savior became clearer. In type and picture, He was set forth to Israel as a Lamb without blemish – the Sacrifice to cancel guilt and deliver from Satan’s power. Through the prophets, God clearly foretold (1) How He was to come: “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel” (Isaiah 7:14); and (2) Where He was to come: “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting” (Micah 5:2). Then, in Luke 2:1-20, we read of these Scriptures being fulfilled on the night when shepherds watched their flocks in the fields, and saw the glory of the Lord in the skies. The angel appeared and exclaimed in their attentive ears: “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Thus wasÉ
The Gift Given.
“In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him” (1 John 4:9). Man’s sin brought death. God’s grace brought salvation to all who believe in His Son. At Calvary, Jesus “gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed” (Titus 2:14). In resurrection, He is now crowned with glory and honor at the Father’s right hand. Through the revelation of the Word of God, and by the power of the Spirit of God, He is now offered to all – to YOU – as the best gift. Best, since no other gift is more needed – “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Best, since no gift is more desirable – He is “altogether lovely” (Song of Solomon 5:16). However, that you may have Him for your own need, and possess Him as the joy and delight of your soul, He must beÉ
The Gift Accepted.
A gift offered to you does not become yours until you receive it. So it is with salvation. Faith is the empty hand that reaches out to receive God’s gift of life. It is the personal appropriation of His offer. It is believing in your heart that Christ’s suffering and death were for your sins; that His resurrection from among the dead was for your justification. It is making THE BEST GIFT yours!
Millions have already received this Gift and been made eternally grateful for the blessing it has brought them. Eternal life as a present possession, the forgiveness of sins, peace with God, and much more are all wrapped up in this invaluable gift of God’s beloved Son. Will YOU accept HIM NOW? Take Him by faith as your very own Savior, and you will find Him to be the best gift you have ever received. – D.T.J.
“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast” (Ephesians 2:8,9).
