Did you know that there are christian meanings for different colors. There are usually 8 colors of jelly beans.
The meanings are:
Red ~ the blood of Jesus that He shed.
Black ~ Our sin, His death, the final hour.
White ~ Pure and holy. The Blood's cleansing power.
Green ~ New Life that His death brings.
Purple ~ The Royal color, A reminder that Jesus is King of Kings.
Orange ~ is for the Holy Spirit Fire that glows,
Pink ~ is for the Infilling of the Holy Spirit that your life shows.
Yellow ~ is for the Joy & Celebration that Easter Brings.
For an Easter Project we fill clean empty jars with Jelly Beans and put the Jelly Bean Prayer on the outside of the jars. This makes a great Easter gift to give to friends, relatives, elderly people, and to make for a Sunday School Project. You can use small baby food jars or huge pickle jars, or any size in between.
