English Tracts

"Smiles" is a one-page tract that contains 31 of my favorite funny one-liners on the front (which makes it very easy to distribute) and a great gospel message on the back. I give a copy to almost every person I meet. Join me in experiencing the joy of passing them out.

If you would like to have one of these tracts customized with your church's name, address etc. please contact me at There will be no charge for this service.

Smiles (Black and white version with one-liners especially for students in middle school through college)
English gospel (without one-liners)

Side one of Smiles contains only clean one-liners such as:

1. Insanity is hereditary. You get it from your children.
2. If a turtle doesn't have a shell, is it naked or homeless?

3. Consciousness: That annoying time between naps.

Side two presents the gospel using three stories and scripture:

1. The Driver (Our need)

2. The Convict (God's provision)

3. The Skydiver (Our response and how it will change our life)


The stories that follow capture the heart

of the Bible’s message in a fresh, new

way. You are invited to experience them

for yourself.

1. The Driver

A driver was once stopped by a police

officer. He was a good driver and as far as

he knew he had done nothing wrong.

The police officer said, “I pulled you

over because you were going 60 through

a school zone. There were ten warning

signs that the speed limit was 15 and you

ignored them all.”

Just like the driver had ten warning

signs, God has given us ten clear warning

signs in the Bible. They are called the Ten


Have you ever told a lie, stolen

something or used God’s name as a cuss

word? If you’re like me the answer is ‘yes’.

Listen to what the Bible says:

Whoever keeps the whole law and yet

stumbles at just one point is guilty of

breaking all of it. James 2:10

God is saying that by breaking one

Commandment we have sinned and will

be held accountable for breaking all of

them, including adultery and murder.

God’s judgment for our sin is death.

(Banishment to hell because He will

not allow sin in His presence).

Romans 6:23a

If the story ends here, there is no hope

for us…

2. The Convict

An innocent man approached a judge and

volunteered to be executed in the place of a

convicted murderer. The judge consented. The

next day the judge told the convict he had a

decision to make.

“An innocent man has been put to death in your

place. If you will accept his payment for your

crime, you are free to go. If you will not accept

his payment, you will be executed for your crime.

Which do you choose?”

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was sinless but

voluntarily gave his life to pay the penalty for

your sins and mine. (God’s judgment for our sin

is death). Three days later he rose from the dead.

God showed his great love for us by sending

Jesus to die for us while we were still sinners.

Romans 5:8

The gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus

our Lord. Romans 6:23b

As a result of Jesus’ death in your place, you

have two choices:

Receive both God’s pardon for your sins and

eternal life by repenting (sensing your sinfulness

and desiring to turn from it) and placing your

trust in the Lord Jesus. (Acts 20:21)


Reject both God’s pardon for your sins and

eternal life by trusting in anyone or anything

other than Jesus to make you acceptable to God,

thus bearing the penalty for breaking God’s law


Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life,

but whoever rejects the Son of God will not

see life, for God's wrath remains on him.

John 3:36

Knowing about Jesus doesn’t mean you believe

in Jesus…

3. The Skydiver

Skydivers demonstrate their belief in

their parachutes when they jump from the


Followers of Jesus demonstrate their

belief in Him when God’s Spirit changes

their thoughts and desires.

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new

creation; the old has gone, the new

has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17

God says, “I will give you a new heart

and put a new spirit in you.”

Ezekiel 36:26

Just as entering a garage won’t make

you a mechanic, attending a church won’t

make you a Christian.

If you would like to receive God’s

pardon for your sins and the gift of eternal

life, consider a prayer like this:

“Jesus, I believe you paid the penalty for

my sins when you died on the cross and

rose from the dead. I want to turn from my

sins and place my trust in you as my Lord.

I am willing to follow you the rest of my

life. Thank you for the gift of eternal life.


Anyone who calls on the name of the

Lord will be saved. Romans 10:13

The desire of real followers of Jesus is to:

Live a life worthy of the Lord, pleasing

Him in every way, bearing fruit in

every good work, and growing in the

knowledge of God. Colossians 1:10

Every Saturday a team of us distribute between 1,000 and 1,500 copies of Smiles at the Orlando International Airport. It’s my personal goal to give a copy of Smiles to every person I meet, seven days a week. I often do it by saying something like, “Here’s something to brighten up your day”.

I usually use the black and white version of the tract to keep the cost down and copy it onto pastel colored paper.
