Martin Luther wanted to tell other people what he believed about God. He taught them using this picture. Can you spot a cross, a heart, a rose, a blue background, and a gold ring? Here’s a simple way to understand what Martin Luther wanted people to understand….
First, there is a black cross in the middle of a red heart. This reminds me that I believe with my heart that Jesus loves me!
Even though there is a black cross on the heart and I know that Jesus died on a cross for me, the heart stays colorful and alive. God is the creator and care-taker of all life.
The heart lies on a white rose like a soft blanket reminding me that my faith gives me joy, peace and comfort. The rose should be white because white is the color of angels.
The Blue Background
Blue is the color of the sky and reminds me of heaven. It is also the color of hope all the wonderful things God has promised me.
The Gold Ring
Gold is one of the most precious metals in all the earth. God loves each one of us as if we were the most precious thing in all the world. When I look the ring I don’t see a beginning or an end to it. This is just like God’s love for the world that will last forever and will never end.
