The Gospel message can be explained in five simple colors. You can turn these five colors into an evangelistic bracelet, necklace, wordless book, or pin. They are: GREEN: Green stands for the creation of the world. Verse: Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." BLACK: Black stands for the sin that we have committed and that separates us from God. Verse: Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." RED: Red stands for God's love and forgiveness extended through the blood of Jesus Christ, who died in our place. Verse: 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 "For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures." WHITE: White stands for how we are washed clean from sin through faith in Jesus. Verse: 2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! YELLOW: Yellow stands for our hope for Heaven. Verse: John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whosoever believes in him shall have eternal life." In this simple way that even a child can understand, we can share the gospel with others! This fulfills the great commission that Jesus gave us to "go out and make disciples" (Matthew 28:19-20)!

1 Sarah R = "Some people add a sixth color: blue, to represent baptism, both physical baptism (in water) and spiritual baptism (of the Holy Spirit). A good verse for this would be: Acts 2:38 “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”"

3 Sarah R = "Using gold for the yellow is a nice touch, since Heaven is described as having streets of gold (Revelation 21:21)."
