Colour my World

The page turns...”A butterfly!” On the colouring-in page is the usual outline: a central
cylinder of a body, with four wings – a smaller pair and a larger pair. The butterfly has a
smile on its face. The page is black and white.
What if this was the only butterfly the child ever knew?
Now imagine the same picture after the attentions of an enthusiastic five-year-old with a
box of crayons: there is red and black on the wings, purple in the spots, a yellow body,
and green edging. What a transformation!
The bible tells us we are “here to bring light, bringing out the God-colours in the world.”
We are not to leave our neighbours in a black-and-white, colourless world, but we are to
“colour in” life for those around us, because “God is not a secret to be kept..." (Matthew
5:14 The Message)
A wonderful aid to bringing God’s colour into our lives is the new God Speaks Bible, with
its colour-coded highlighting of God’s words, miracles, and much more. Previously black-
and-white pages are now splashed with colour: blocks of green, or strips of purple and
yellow and then purple again… Hearing God is now aided by “seeing” God.
Want to help promote the reading of God's Word and encourage people to learn how to
hear God's voice? Imagine a color coded study Bible and multi-media application
highlighting when God speaks to you. Operation Light Force (OLF) is a ministry devoted
to equipping people to do what Jesus did, setting captives free, healing and preaching.
Richard Mull is the President and Founder of OLF and the General Editor of the God
Speaks Bible and many other books and was featured on TV and media. Help us spread
the word.
