So what do they all mean?


Symbol #1: GOD LOVES ME
The four points are an overview or summary of the entire bible and the first thing you need to know is that God is crazy about you! His love is unlimited and completely unconditional. There is nothing you can do to make God love you any more or less than He does right now. There is nothing God wants more than to love and be loved by you. Bible: Psalm 100v5, 1 John 3v16

Symbol #2: I HAVE SINNED
Sadly we have all been separated from God's love by something the bible calls sin. Simply put sin is choosing to live for ourselves rather than God. We sin when we ignore God, break His laws and basically do things our own way. Sin destroys relationships with friends, with family and with God. The bible says that sin ultimately brings death. Bible: Isaiah 59v2, Romans 6v23

The third point is probably one of the most well known facts in the history of mankind but is often misunderstood. The key is to realise that the penalty for sin is death. We've all sinned and we deserve to die. But God, who is full of mercy, love you so much that He sent Jesus to come and die in your place. Jesus died so that we can have eternal life. Bible: 1 John 4v9-10, Romans 5v8

God has done everything He can to demonstrate just how important you are to Him. It is now up to you to decide what you want to do. God is offering you life in all it's fullness for all eternity. All you need to do is accept that you've sinned, ask for God's forgiveness and decide to live the rest of your life only for Him. The choice is yours. Bible: Deuteronomy 30v19, 1 John 1v9



Dear God, Thank You that You love me and want the best for me in every situation. I'm sorry for ignoring You and doing things my way. I realise now that my sin has hurt You and the people around me and for this I'm truly sorry. Thank You Jesus that you cam and took the punishment for my sin. Thank You that You gave Your life for me. Please forgive me and help me now as I decide to live only for You. Amen.


These four symbols are a summary of what Jesus called the most important commands in the bible. 
In the bible (Matthew 22v37-40) we hear Jesus replying to the question which is the greatest commandment in the Law , and he says: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
These four symbols summarise those two most important commands, the four symbols mean: Love God, Love your Neighbour.
