I started making these Salvation Bracelets after a short-term mission trip to Brazil. While there I made Salvation Bracelets with the Brazilian children using leather straps and plastic beads. They loved them! And they loved hearing about Jesus' great love for them.
After returning home, I kept wearing my bracelet as a memento of the trip. But I decided to find out if it was possible to make a pretty Salvation bracelet. This is what I came up with. It is Sterling Silver and Swarovski crystals. (Available in small, medium or large for $63) It is a Salvation Bracelet that I can wear and feel pretty at the same time.
It serves as a reminder of God's great love for us. Each crystal color stands for a part of the Salvation message:
Black: sin. Rom 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Red: Jesus’ blood. Rom 5:8&9 “…while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Clear: clean. 1 Cor 6:11 “…you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ…”
Blue: baptism. Acts 2:38 “Peter replied, ‘Repent and be baptized, everyone of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.’”
Green: growth. 2 Peter 3:18 “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever! Amen.”
Yellow: heaven. Rev 21:21 “…The great street of the city was of pure gold, like transparent glass.”
If you don't know Jesus as your Savior, pray and ask for His forgiveness. He loves you and gives Salvation to all who believe in Him.
