Nearly 2,000 years ago the greatest Person Who has ever lived gave the greatest challenge that has ever been given. That challenge was to take His message of love and forgiveness to every man, woman, and child on the face of the earth. (Matthew 28:20) Whenever possible Jesus would use simple, everyday, earthly examples, called parables, to help clarify and communicate a heavenly truth. That is the purpose of this VISUAL presentation of the Gospel. Studies have revealed that after 24 hours the average person will only remember 6% of what he or she hears, but they will remember about 60% of what they see. This visual presentation of the Gospel now makes it possible for a person to not only hear the Gospel but to SEE the Gospel. They can see the problem, they can see the solution, and they can see the results of receiving Christ.
Following is a brief outline of this visual presentation with photos of the small version.
God and Man separated by Sin
This illustration starts by showing that God and man (the balls on each end) are separated and prevented from having the fellowship that God had originally intended for them to have. If man is ever going to reach God, somehow this barrier (the middle ball) caused by our sins has to be dealt with and removed.
The Cross represents God’s Solution
The cross is the symbol of what Jesus did for us. Because of His love for us, God sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to die in our place to pay the death penalty for our sins. (Here the cross is attached to the middle ball.)
Jesus Christ Removed the Barrier of Our Sins
The most important thing that God wants each of us to know is that He loves us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus Christ- to die (point to the cross) in our place (point to yourself) for our sins (point to sin ball) and in doing so, Jesus Christ removed the barrier of our sins.
Fellowship Between God and Man Restored
The very moment we are willing to say “Thank you, Jesus, for dying for my sins, come into my life and make my life what you want it to be.” (slide the two balls together) at that moment Jesus Christ brings man and God back into an eternal relationship with each other.
