Grandparents, here is a wonderful way to connect with your grandchilren. We should make it a point to find creative ways to instill the Gospel into their minds and hearts. Our children and grandchildren are the only “thing” we can take with us from the world when we enter eternity. Don’t you desire to have everyone of them spending forever with the Lord and you when we enter the presence of the Lord?
Have you heard of the Wordless Book?
Basically, it is sharing the gospel using colors. You don’t have to have words for this book and it is an easy way for children to remember the gospel story of what Jesus did for them and how they can be saved. Here is a picture with a brief explanation of each color: You can read a sermon on the Wordless Book by C. H. Spurgeon HERE.
The Wordless Book is also in song form. It was copyrighted in 1940 and can be found in the Salvation Songs for Children put out by Child Evangelism Fellowship. It is a simple and catchy song that the kids love to sing.
This is a great way to give the gospel to your grandchildren. In turn, it is a great way for them to share it with others. There are so many ways you can use this method. Here are a few ways that I have used it on special holidays. For Easter I used it with a jelly bean craft which you can find here. And for Christmas I used it with a Christmas Tree Craft which you can find here.
If you do a google search on the Wordless book evangelistic tool, you can find countless ideas. I will be adding more ideas along the way; Here is a list of some things I have used with my littles in our ministry. I’ve taken the Wordless book and adapted it into different themes or crafts to help them remember the Gospel. I wish I could say they were all ready to share, but I haven’t quite got that far yet. Hopefully soon! 🙂 So just use your imagination and make your own.
