This is call a GOSPEL BRACELET. We use it to explain the story of Jesus by
using different colors.
BLACK means that
all people sin.We all fall short of God's glory.We can never come up to God's glory.What happens when people sin?They will die.Death is God's punishment for sin.Sometimes God also punishes sinners in hell.
Romans 3:24 -- "For all people have sinned against
God.All people have fallen short of
John 3:16 -- "God so loved the world that He sent His only Son, that
whoever believes in Him [Jesus], they will not die but they will receive life
The color red means the
blood of Jesus
on the cross. The blood of Jesus covers our black sin so
that God no longer sees our sins. It is
like Jesus stand between us and God the Father.
When God the Father looks at us, He sees Jesus instead. We are
hidden in Jesus. He covers our sin. The blood of Jesus
covers the sin of all
BLUE means faith.We must trust the blood of Jesus.Without faith, we cannot be saved.
Galatians 2:16 -- "We become right with God, how?Not by following the law.We become right with God by trusting Jesus
Blue represents faith in Jesus Christ, faith in the blood of
Jesus which saves us.
WHITE means that
God washes away our black sin and He makes us clean.
Like Psalm 51:7 says, He washes
me.He purifies me. He make my sins snow
GREEN is like the
color of green plants.Green represents growth. When you believe and have faith and become washed clean,
then you continue to mature and grow strong in Jesus.We do that by learning and studying the
Bible, receiving preaching, attending church, remembering our baptism, going to
the Lord's Supper.That makes our faith
strong and mature.
Throughout our lives as Christians we need to continue
to mature and grow in faith.
means heaven.We and I are not going to hell.We are going to heaven. Why? Because we trust
the blood of Jesus to cover our sins.Jesus said, "I am going there to prepare a place for you in
heaven.And if I go, I will come back
and take you with Me to live with me forever." (John 14:3)Heaven is beautiful!There will be no more crying, no more grief,
no death, no bad thing.In heaven all is
good.There we will celebrate and have
joy, peace, fun, and true pleasure.That
is represented by color yellow.
When you can explain of the all the colors of the Gospel bracelet, you know the story of Jesus.
