Last Sunday at church JJ and Justice each made salvation bracelets in their classrooms. They were SO EXCITED to tell us all about them so I videotaped them each giving their descriptions of the meaning of the colors in the bracelet. First up is JJ’s description. You’ll notice a major difference between the length of his description and Justice’s! JJ had to search for the words to describe each color fully. :) You’ll also notice Justice squirming and shaking his head as JJ explains. :) I think he thought JJ was sort of getting off topic (and JJ's version isn't necessarily full of sound doctrine) but it was still fun listening to JJ explain what he learned as best as he could. :)
And here is Justice's description:
And in case you didn’t catch that, here are the meanings of each of the colors:
Black – represents our sin, which separates us from God. Red – represents Jesus’ blood when he died on the cross for our sins. White – represents cleansing/washing away of sin and gaining purity through forgiveness. Green - represents the growth of our relationship with God. Gold– represents the promise of eternal life in Heaven….streets of gold!
