The BLACK bead
represents our sin. This is a sad bead. This bead makes God sad. But we all have sinned. And God loves us so much that He made a plan to take away our sin.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God
James 2:10 Whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
The RED bead
represents the blood of Jesus. Jesus died on the cross and shed his red blood to pay for our sin.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (He shed His blood.)
1 Corinthians 15:3-4 Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And he was buried, and he rose again the third day according to the scriptures
The WHITE bead
means we are cleansed and forgiven. Jesus’ blood cleanses us from our sin and makes us white as snow. Our dirty sins are gone; they are forgotten and forgiven.
…though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
…and God will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
Psalm 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, he has removed our transgressions from us.
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.
The BLUE bead
represents water baptism. Not a part of salvation but a part of obedience. Baptism is an outward sign of what has happened to us inwardly.
We are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
The GREEN bead
represents growth (Like the green plants grow outside). We grow in the Lord by going to church and reading the Bible to learn more about God. We grow by praying and talking to others about the Lord.
2 Peter 3:18 Grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
The YELLOW bead
represents heaven. Eternal life in Heaven! Oh happy bead!! We get to go to Heaven. In Heaven, we will walk on streets of gold. And the Bible says there will be no sun in heaven because God Himself will be our light.
Heaven will be our home forever
John 14:2-3 …I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
2 Corinthians 5:1 We know that if our earthly house were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
Revelation 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light of it.
John 3:16 God loved the world so much that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.
If you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man believes to righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made to salvation.
