Greetings in Christ Name:

We would like to introduce you to a ministry that we feel God has laid upon our hearts to share in any and all ways possible. It is like the plan of salvation, so simple, yet so powerful. We have tried and proven the effect that it has on every person in which we have taken the opportunity to present. The responses of those persons have been very moving on us as well. We use a simple aquarium / decorator flat red glass marble. We have been able to purchase these at Pets Mart and Michael’s Arts and Crafts stores. There are other sources, and the average cost is about $2.50 for 40-45 marbles.

Just take one marble and approach someone you love and watch and feel the response.

We have developed three basic scripts that we use as guidelines in the presentation.

Ministry script 1: (To someone you Love)

Hold out your hand, I have something I want you to have. (Place the marble in the palm of their hand; hold your finger on the marble while you speak to keep their attention) Now this is just a piece of glass, but I want to use it to represent one drop of Jesus blood. I want you to know I love you, your family and friends love you, but most of all I want you to know that God loves you. He loved you so much that he gave his only Son to die on the Cross so that if you and I believe in Him we can have eternal life. Just one drop could have saved the entire world, but he gave it all, his blood, his life for you and me. I want you to carry this with you at all times, and each time you look at it or feel it, I want you to remember how much we all love you, but more important, how much God loves you

Ministry script 2 (Visitation or stranger)

(Hold out your hand in order to shake hands. Introduce yourself.) Hi I’m ___________; I attend _______________ Church in _______________. I would like for you to have something from the Church and me . (Place the marble in the palm of their hand; hold your finger on the marble while you speak to keep their attention). Now this is just a piece of glass, but I want to use it to represent one drop of Jesus blood. I want you to know I love you, your family and friends love you, and our Church loves you, but most of all I want you to know that God loves you. He loved you so much that he gave his only Son to die on the Cross so that if you and I believe in Him we can have eternal life. Just one drop could have saved the entire world, but he gave it all, his blood, his life for you and me. I want you to carry this with you at all times, and each time you look at it or feel it, I want you to remember how much we all love you, but more important, how much God loves you.

Ministry script 3 (challenging Christians to sow seeds)

How are you doing brother/sister? Do you remember the drop of Jesus blood that I gave you? (Hold out your hand with several marbles in it and place them in their hand) I want you to do me a favor, take these and give them to people that you love, that you know does not have one and tell them how much you love them, but also tell them how much God loves them. He loves them so much that he gave his only son to die on Calvary that they may have eternal life.
