THE WORDLESS BOOK
Want to know a great way to share the Lord with children as well as adults? Then try the Wordless Book. It’s a great way to present the gospel through colors. You can use it with a group or one on one with people you meet. Just go through the colors, share the verses, and then seek to pray with the person to receive Christ.
You can make up your own with construction paper or any other material you can find. Be creative. Variations of the Wordless Book include wristbands, etc., all of which may be ordered online. Seek to memorize the verses that go along with the colors. If you don’t have your Wordless Book handy then just say the colors instead. Here’s how the Wordless Book goes:
GREEN: Speaks of the perfect world God created. (Gen 1:1) In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth . . . (Gen 1:31) . . . God saw everything that He had made, and . . . it was very good . . .
BLACK: Speaks of the darkness of sin. (Rom 3:23) for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God . . . (Rom 6:23) For the wages of sin is death . . .
RED: Speaks of the blood of Jesus. (2 Cor 5:15) and He died for all . . . (1 John 1:9) If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
WHITE: Speaks of our sins being forgiven. (Isa 1:18) . . . your sins . . . shall be as white as snow . . .
BLUE: Speaks of the promise of heaven. (John 3:16) For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
GOLD: Speaks of the streets of gold God’s children will walk on in heaven. (Rev 21:21) . . . And the street of the city was pure gold…
Then ask the person: “Would you like to receive Jesus in your heart?” If they are willing then have them repeat the sinner’s prayer phrase by phrase after you:
“Dear Jesus, I believe in You . . . and that You died for me . . . and that you rose again. I am sorry for my sins. Please forgive me. Come into my heart . . . and be my Savior. Help me to live for You. And please take me to heaven. Thank you, Jesus. I love You. AMEN!”
The Wordless Book is just one method among many to lead people to Christ. Find what works for you. The important thing is to engage people in conversation and let people know that the Lord can color their world with the beauty of His salvation!
