Often we think we need to have all these verses memorised to present the Gospel to someone. The Wordless Colour Book is an easy to make tool for sharing the Gospel with children, and even adults.
The book is very basic. It contains 5 colours that each represent parts of the Gospel. The 5 colours and what they represent are:
- Black – Sin
- Red – the Blood of Christ
- White – Forgiveness & Salvation
- Yellow – Heaven
- Green – New life and Christian Growth
If you can remember these five colours and what they represent then you can share the Gospel. Of course, the Bible tells us that the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Heb 4:12 and so it helps to memorize some verses to go with the colours.
Some verses may include:
The great thing about these books being wordless is you can use them to teach both younger and older children in Sunday School. For younger children you can keep it simple and explain each concept, and for older children you can include verses and explain it from God’s word.
They also make great teaching resources for missionaries as they do not need to be translated to be used!
How to Make
To make these books all you need is coloured paper or card. We used A4 paper and laminated it so it would be more durable for teaching Sunday School with and to send to our missionaries.
If you aren’t laminating them then you simply fold each of the coloured papers in half and glue them together in the correct order. You could also bind the pages, tie them together or place them on a key ring.
Get Creative with it!
You could also try these variations of the wordless colour book by using felt, cutting the pages into shapes, using nesting cans or making bracelets. The bracelets would make a good activity for Sunday School.
If you have any other variations on the wordless colour book please comment and let us know so we can share them with others.
There is also a little children’s song you can sing while you show them the book.
(Black) My heart was dark with sin
until the Savior came in.
(Red) His precious blood I know
(White) Has washed it white as snow.
(Gold) And in His Word I’m told
I’ll walk the streets of gold.
(Green) To grow in Christ each day
I read the Bible and pray.
