The Scripture Lady is a huge fan of the Wordless Book and here are some Wordless Book activities to help teach your children the good news of Jesus Christ!
If you’ve never heard of the “Wordless Book”, you are in for a real treat! The Wordless Book is a very simple tool for evangelism. It takes the five colors of Black or Dark, Red, White, Green and Yellow or Gold to explain the Gospel of Jesus Christ on a very elementary, yet effective, level.
Here is an explanation of each of the colors and their corresponding verse or verses:
Gold – Reminds us of God’s love and how He has prepared a special place for each one of His children in Heaven where we will be a part of His Forever Family. (John 3:16)
Dark – Reminds us of the sin in our lives. Sin is anything we think, say or do that displeases God. God cannot allow sin into heaven. Sin must be punished and the punishment for sin is to be separated from God forever. But God has a wonderful plan so that we won’t have to be punished for our sin. (Romans 3:23 and 13:12)
Red – Reminds us of the blood that Jesus shed on the cross to take the punishment for our sins. His blood is the only thing that can cleanse us of our sins. (I Corinthians 15:3-4 and Hebrews 10:22)
Clean – Reminds us that we can have a clean heart because of the price that Jesus paid for our sins on the cross. If you admit that you are a sinner and believe in your heart that Christ died for your sins and call on Him to forgive you of your sins, you will be saved. (John 1:12)
Green – Reminds us of things that grow. As a child of God, we too can grow. We can grow in prayer, in the reading of His Word, in fellowship with other believers, and by telling others about God’s wonderful Gospel story. (II Peter 3:18)
The Wordless Book is one of my favorite ways to share God’s plan of salvation with children. This page is dedicated to all things having to do with The Wordless Book. I hope and pray you use this colorful tool with your kids as well.
