How To Use Gospel Bracelets and Wristbands
Some children and sometimes a friend will be asking you why are you wearing that kind of wristbands. It will then open an opportunity for you to share what it means. And as you share it, try to point or hold the beed that you are discussing. Study this simple presentation:
Gold represents the golden streets and glory of heaven, where we will spend eternity with Christ if we believe in Him. It is God’s ultimate plan for mankind, to those who believe in Him. The Bible says: “Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.” Revelations 2:10
But we are sinful, represented by Black, which separates us from God. The Bible says: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
God gave us the solution for this, and there’s only one solution that will get us to heaven. The Red is for the Blood of Jesus shed on the cross for us.
The Bible says: “…while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Rom 5:8b
Coming down before Jesus to forgive our sins and come into our hearts, our sins are washed away. The Bible it says: “…the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7b
Blue represents baptism, being immersed in water to show our “death” and “resurrection” in Christ. Baptism does not, cannot and will not save you, but we do it to follow Jesus’ example and Jesus’ command in Matthew 28:19-20.
The Bible it says: “Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John.” Matthew 3:13
Green is for all growing things. Similar to plants, our spirtual lives also needs to grow. Study God’s Word, worshipping God during services, coming to church with other Christians to have fellowship, praying and attending prayer meetings, discipleship and Sunday school, are just some of the avenues where we can grow spiritually.
In the Bible it says: “Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 3:18a
Some people add purple to their bracelets. Purple represents royalty. It symbolizes Jesus as our Lord and King.
The Tie Lock Knot symbolizes our security in Christ.
After your presentation, try to invite your friend to come to church. Be sure to pray for him as well that God will work in his heart as you present the gospel.
