We had the opportunity to do Hospital Evangelism recently on the wards. Charity found some puppets that we have had, but don’t use as often as we should and so we had them join us for our Hospital Evangelism. At times kids have been afraid of them, but Charity clearly explained that they had good manners and wouldn’t bite or eat them. While some of the really little kids were a little afraid, the adults and the older kids seemed to enjoy them. We shared the story of Jesus’s love for us through the PNG flag, which has the story right in it.
Black the color of Sin, which separates us from God.
Red the color of Blood, which Jesus willingly shed for us on the Cross
White the color of Righteousness, which we become as we believe trust and believe in Jesus. This is represented in the constellation – the Southern Cross – which gives a visual of the cross Jesus died upon and the 5th star representing the place where the spear pierced Jesus shedding his blood.
Yellow (Gold) the color of the streets of heaven, represented in the National Bird of PNG – the Bird of Paradise, another name for heaven.
This story is not only a way to share Jesus with those who don’t know it, but also a tool for those who do know Jesus to be able to share with others. What a privilege to share the truth of God’s word and the love of Christ with those who are hurting in the hospital.
