The Wordless Book

The Wordless Book is commonly used to tell children about salvation but it can be used for people of all ages.  As the name implies, there are no words to the book.  In fact there aren’t even any pictures.  Instead the wordless book just uses colors to illustrate the gospel.

The Black page represents sin.  Sin is when we fail to do the things that we are supposed to do.  The Bible teaches us that everyone has sinned.  Sin separates us from God.  We can’t enter into heaven because we have sinned.  That’s bad news.  Fortunately there is Good News!

There are five colors (some have six) in the wordless book.  They are black,red, white, yellow, and green.  Some add blue in as well to represent baptism.

The Red page represents the blood of Jesus.  Jesus never sinned.  Jesus died even though He didn’t deserve to.  His blood washes away our sins.

The White page represents cleanness.  While we were once dirty because of our sins, the blood of Jesus made us clean.

The Yellow or Gold page represents heaven.  Because we have been made clean, we now can go to heaven and live with Jesus forever.

The Green page represents growth and new life.  When we have been forgiven of our sins and they have been washed away we are new creatures.  The bad things in our past our gone and we can live life anew.  But we also have a responsibility.  We are supposed to grow closer to God.  This can be done by going to church, reading the Bible, and praying.

Some books include a Blue page as well.  This represents baptism.  Believers are told to be baptized.  It depends on your beliefs how much baptism is emphasized and what manner of baptism should take place however.
