God uses tracts to save people. Sometimes you don't even have to hand the tract directly to someone. Tracts can work by themselves in miraculous ways. I remember hearing a brother share once how he got saved by reading a tract that he had picked up off the floor in a laundry mat. And then yesterday I was reading a similar sort of story that Watchman Nee shares in a chapter called How to Distribute Tracts:
A man once picked up a tract and immediately threw it away. Another person came along the same road. He was hurt by a nail which stuck into his shoe. To relieve his pain, he took the rejected tract, folded it, and put it inside his shoe as a cushion against the nail. When he reached home, he took off his shoes and began to read the tract. His reading brought him to salvation (The collected Works of Watchman Nee, Page 410).
Those kinds of stories are amazing to me. I've been thinking a lot about this because for the next two days I'm going to join some other believers to hand out free study Bibles and gospel tracts to students who are attending an information fair at a university that is just seven minutes from my house. On the first day I'm going to hand out tracts, and on the second day I'm going to help at the Bibles for America table. We've been praying about this time for several weeks, and I'm excited to see what is going to happen!
