The gospel colors are a great way to lead a child to salvation.
First used by Charles Spurgeon in 1866, the Wordless Book has become a very popular tool used all over the world to explain the plan of salvation to kids using the gospel colors.
This method of evangelism has been so effective that there are now many variations available. One example is the Salvation Bracelet.
Wordless Books are not only extremely easy to use, they are also very effective in explaining the message of salvation through Jesus Christ.
This guide is based on our version of the book that has 2 gold spreads – one at the beginning, and another at the end. Instructions on how to make this Wordless Book can be found here.

Start by showing the child the Wordless Book.
Return to the first gold spread to begin sharing the message of salvation.

Reveal the remaining colors as your presentation proceeds.
Here are some key points to cover as you present the gospel using the Wordless Book.
You may need to tailor your gospel presentation to suit the age of your audience.
Gold reminds me of heaven.
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death, sadness, crying, or pain.
The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate having been made from a single pearl. And the street of the city was made of pure gold as clear as glass.
Everyone has sinned and fallen short of God’s glorious standard.
The payment for sin is death.
When Jesus took the punishment for our sins, something amazing happened.
But God shows his great love for us in this way: Christ died for us while we were still sinners.
The payment for sin is death. But God gives us the free gift of life forever in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Acts 13:30, 31
But God raised him up from the dead! After this, for many days, those who had gone with Jesus from Galilee to Jerusalem saw him.
The amazing thing is that our hearts can now be made clean — even cleaner than this clean page.
1 John 1:9
But if we confess our sins, he will forgive our sins, because we can trust God to do what is right. He will cleanse us from all the wrongs we have done.
When our hearts are made clean, we can be with God.
We can one day be with God in heaven.
But to all who did accept him and believe in him he gave the right to become children of God.
God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son so that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life.
Dear Jesus, thank you for loving me. I know that I have sinned. I have done things that are wrong. I believe that you died on the cross to take the punishment for my sins. Please forgive all of my sins and make my heart clean. Please come into my life and help me turn away from doing wrong. Thank you that with a clean heart, I can have a relationship with you now and will one day be with you in heaven. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
Green reminds us of things that grow, like grass, leaves and trees.
After praying for forgiveness and for Jesus to come into your life, you now have a special relationship with him.
