Colors of Salvation: the ORANGE panel

| 0 comments

In our “Colors of Salvation” story we are making a project that will allow us to use panels of various colors to tell the Salvation story.

Today we begin with the color orange. Orange in this story represents “the fire of hell”. Romans 3:23 tells us “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”.

Born as sinners, we are condemned to life in hell. Not the physical death, but the spiritual second death – life eternally separated from God.  It is  described in Revelation 21:8 “But the fearful and unbelieving, and the abominable and murderers and whoremongers and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is a second death.”  Sin is not measured by how big a sin it is. Sin is sin. A lie is a sin as murder is.  Sin, no matter how big or how small, separates us from God. Romans 6:23 says “For the wages of sin is death”.

The stitch pattern for this part of the story are fairly easy to do. Just as it is fairly easy to sin.

The stitch pattern in crochet is called “The Alternate Stitch”.  The pattern is accomplished by making a single crochet and a double crochet stitch in the same stitch. Skip a stitch and do another single and double crochet in the next stitch.
