Heaven is for all
Gold represents heaven.
Heaven is a wonderful place. There is no sickness nor pain. It is where God lives and Heaven is for us!
God loves us very much and He desires for all to be with Him in Heaven!
My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
But something separates us from being with God.
Sin that Separates
Black represents sin.
Sins are things we think, say or do that displeases God.
Our sins have its consequences. We are separated from God.
We cannot try to close this gap with our human efforts such as doing good works, living a good life.
Romans 3:23 - For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
But the good news is that God loves us so much that He provides a way for us.
Blood of Jesus
Red represents the blood of Jesus.
God loves us so much that He sent His one and only Son, Jesus Christ to die on the cross for our sins. (John 3:16)
Jesus took the consequences for our sin. He died on the cross so that we can find forgiveness for the wrongs we have done.
His blood broke the curse of sin and reconciled us to God.
We can be made clean before God through faith in Jesus Christ.
1 John 1:9 - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Psalm 51:7 - Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
We can receive this cleansing, by
- Confessing our sins
- Accept that Jesus died on the cross for us
- Asking Jesus to come into our lives to help us turn away from our sins.
Green represents the new life in Jesus!
When we receive Jesus into our lives, we enter into a relationship with Jesus. We receive new life in Him! The old has gone, the new has come.
John 10:10 - The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I (Jesus) have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
Pray this simple prayer to invite Jesus into your heart:
Thank you - for dying on the cross for my sins.
Sorry - for all the wrong things I've done.
Please - come into my heart.
