Colors of Christ

When asked to tell about their favorite colors, 33% of the HIS KIDS RADIO listeners that took our poll said theirs was BLUE. Next in line were PINK and YELLOW (20%), followed by RED, GREEN & other. (I voted for "other" since my favorite color is BROWN!)

It's true that colors can tell a lot about a person, but they can also help us tell others about Jesus! A few years ago, Sarah Keith wrote a poem called the
Colors of Christ.

  • ORANGE is for Heaven so bright. (2 Samuel 22:13-14)
  • YELLOW is for God's perfect light. (Matthew 5:48, Revelation 21:22-23)
  • BLACK is for the sins we've made. (Romans 3:23)
  • RED is for the blood He gave. (Romans 5:8)
  • WHITE is for our cleansing from sin. (Psalm 51:1-2)
  • GREEN is for our new life in Him. (Colossians 1:10)
  • PINK is for His free gift to share. (Matthew 28:19-20)
  • PURPLE is for the crowns we'll wear! (2 Timothy 4:8)

Sarah's poem is based on the
Wordless Book, but she added a few colors to help tell more of the Gospel Story. Some people have even used these colors with beaded bracelets, fingers of a glove, blocks, charms, even sections of an umbrella!

Have you ever used colors to introduce people to Jesus? If so, please let us know!
