WITNESS BRACELETS

When my husband and I owned a Christian bookstore I was asked to find the Witness Bracelets for a Sunday School Teacher. I could not locate them, so I decided to put together our own kits. You can do the same thing to hand out for Halloween Treats. This would be a fun project for the whole family.

The bracelet has 6 colored beads on a 10 inch leather strip. Each color represents a part of the story of our Lord Jesus Christ and what He did to save us, His children.

THE INSTRUCTIONS:

The materials are readily available from any craft store. You can get the materials in the craft section of Walmart.
For each bracelet: 1 leather strip about 10 inches in length You can substitute just about anything that will form a bracelet for the leather.

1 Yellow (or gold) bead
1 Black bead
1 Red bead
1 White bead
1 Blue bead
1 Green bead

At approximately 4 inches from one end of the strip, tie a single not. Now thread each bead in the order shown, that is, gold, black, red, white, blue and green, onto the strip. Tie a single not in the strip so that the beads will not fall off (at about 4 inches from the opposite end). Tie the bracelet around your wrist and you have finished. Or you can place the leather stripe and one bead of each color in a small baggy stapled on a paper explaining what each color represents.

Meanings of each color on the bracelet:
The gold stands for heaven,
the black for sin,
the red for the sacrifice of Christ,
the white for purity
(his and ours when he becomes Lord of our lives),
the blue for the Holy Spirit
and the green for everlasting last with Jesus Christ.

There are bible verses to go along with each color, see the Witness Color Book.

you will find a more detailed description of each color and the bible verses to go along with them.

Gold - John 18:37 - Jesus said "You are right in saying I am a king. In fact for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me."
Step#1 is to think of your life and turn away from selfishness and toward GOD. This is called Repentance

Black - Romans 3:23 - "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."
Step #2 You must acknowledge that Jesus Christ died on the cross to forgive you of your sin. Sin is anything which does not please God. Things like lying, bad attitudes, fighting. We are all born with a "want to" to do wrong things. The Bible says that sin must be punished. That means to be separated from God forever.

Red - Hebrews 9:22 - And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission
STEP#3 Open your Heart. Jesus will come into your heart - your inner person. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, never did anything wrong. He willingly took the punishment for our sins when He died on the cross. God put our sin on Him. Christ gave His blood for us. He died but He didn't stay dead. He rose again three days later. Now He is in heaven with God, and He comes into our heart to live. And: 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

White - 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.
STEP #4 Ask Jesus to be Lord of your Life By believing in Jesus, we can become children of God. Because Jesus died and took the punishment for all of our sins. We can not earn this status, it is a free gift offered by Jesus. All you need to do is to pray to Him and tell Him you believe in Him and that you accept Him as you savior. After this, He will never leave you. He will be inside you forever. Isaiah 1: 18b Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;

Blue - Luke 11:13b - "Your Father in Heaven will give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him."
Step #5 Ask that the Holy Spirit will guide you. Jesus promised His people that after He left earth God would send The Holy Spirit to help and guide us.

Green - John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
STEP #6 Now you can live with God & Jesus forever God made all things, the sun, the moon, the earth, the trees, the mountains, everything. He even made you, He loves you very much. In fact God Loved the world and you so much that he sent His very own son to earth so that you can live with God forever in Heaven. God has a place for all His children to live with Him forever.
