Why the Bracelet
The Good News Bracelet gives every believer the ability to preach the gospel (good news) in less than twenty seconds. Even six year old children in our church are preaching the gospel message using “The Good News Bracelet.” The beautiful thing about it is that God’s word will not return to Him void but will accomplish that which He pleases and prosper in the thing for which He sends it (Is 55:11). He sends the gospel message to save all who believe on Jesus Christ (Jn 1.12b, 3:14-16 & 36, 6:47, 7:39, 20:31; Acts 8:12-13 & 36-37, 10:43, 16:31, 18:8b; Rom 1:16 & 10:9b; 1 Cor 1:21, 4:15, 15:11; 1 Tim 1:16; Eph 1:13; Heb 10:39; 1 Jn 5:1a).
The gospel is to be preached to every person in every nation as Jesus commanded (Mk 16.15, Mt 24.14) so its message must be kept simple (2 Cor 11:3). You have probably never heard the Plan of Salvation (The evangelical church’s gospel) presented outside the doors of the church nor have you presented it yourself. It just doesn’t work. People will not listen for the time it takes to try to convince them of their sinfulness and need to pray a prayer of salvation (sinner’s prayer). For this reason bible tracts have taken the place of preaching the gospel. Most bible tracts aren’t read either for the same reason and because people are simply tired of them, so they wind up in the trash before getting read.
Jesus’ command is to “Preach the Gospel (Mk 16.15).” Contrary to popular belief, it is not the “sinner’s prayer” that saves. It is belief on Jesus Christ. The moment a person believes upon Christ (the gospel) they become saved (born again or a new creature)(Acts 16.31). This is referred to as the mystery of the gospel (Eph 6.19) because how a man or woman becomes born again is simply unexplainable. It is the duty of every believer to preach the gospel message for, “It pleases God through the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe (1 Cor 1.21).” “How shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without a preacher?…as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace (Rom 10.14-15)..” Just wear and share (preach) the good news bracelet and others will be saved. Its as simple as that.
