Christian Pendants: Share His Story
One of the joys of being a Christian is the ability to share His story. “His” story, of course, is the life and ministry of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, called Yeshua in Hebrew. One of the most creative ways to share His story is through the beautiful and inspiring messages of Christian jewelry. It can be part of any Believer’s faith journey.
Christian pendants, earrings and bracelets can also help tell an individual’s story about their relationship with Jesus. Certain pieces can speak to how someone came to God’s saving grace. These are ultimately telling His story through the experiences of His followers. The messages of hope and encouragement conveyed by Christian jewelry connect people’s hearts to God.
Probably the most common Christian pendant is the Christian Cross. This is the traditional design of the cross that we most usually associate with Christianity. It has universal appear to all Believers of all denominations as it directly represents Jesus and the sacrifice He made for others’ sins. Because the cross is the universal symbol for Believers wearing a cross adds to the sense of belonging and shows that you are part of a giant movement of faith.
The Jerusalem Cross is a large Greek cross with four smaller Greek crosses in each corner. A Jerusalem cross Christian pendant is a nice choice for those who are interesting in spreading Christianity throughout the world. The large center cross represents Jerusalem and Jesus and the smaller crosser represent the four evangelists, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and the four directions of the earth in which Christianity needs to be spread.
The Ichthys or Jesus Fish
The Ichthys is the oldest symbols of Christianity. It is widely recognized and used today as someone who engages in the faith of Jesus. The fish was used as a symbol of Christianity due to the association of the fish to Jesus’ ministry: Jesus fed the multitudes with fishes and loves, Jesus refers to His disciples as "fishers of men", and Jesus uses the comparison of “fishers sorting out their catch: to God's decision on who will go to heaven or to hell. The term Ichthys is an acronym in Greek for Iesous Christos Theou Yios Soter or Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior. Wearing the Ichthys is possibly a more subtle way to show your faith.
