Gospel Bead Bracelet

The bead bracelet represents the story of salvation:

  • The black bead represents sin. God is holy but man is sinful. All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
  • The red bead represents the sacrifice God made in sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for us. But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
  • The white bead represents the heart no longer stained by sin. The heart is washed clean by the blood of Christ. Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. (Psalm 51:7)
  • The green bead represents life after salvation – spiritual growth and the bearing of fruit in good works. Grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 3:18)
  • The yellow bead represents what believers have to look forward to in heaven. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there you may be also. (John 14:2-3)
  • The blue bead represents the mystery of the love of Christ. A man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ. (Galatians 2:16)

Black & White Hearts

The black heart represents the sinful life apart from Christ. The white heart is the changed heart, washed clean by the blood of Christ.

“Oooo!! BEADS!!!”
