GOSPEL . Acronym - John 3:16

GOSPEL . Acronym - John 3:16

Gospel means "Good News", "Message" or "Glad Tidings", which is repeated through the lettering on the cross motif. I think that the three shades of turquoise along with the brown tones looks great on either white or vintage fabric.

I can imagine this message of "Good News" prominently featured in a families home or adorning a church foyer.

This design was adapted to twice the size of the original "His Name is Jesus" as customers wrote us wanting to stitch this design as a gift to their church. The original "His Name is Jesus" design is 15 x 11 3/8 . 200 x 140 stitches, whereas this version is double that size at 30 x 21-3/8 . 420 X 300 stitches. Design size is based on 14 count Aida or 28 count Linen or Evenweave over two strands.

Diane Higdon shares how the original "His Name is Jesus" design came about...

"This is my favorite pattern and I've done over 100 of them over the years. The woman who gave it to me is Martha Pilgrim.

Over 20 years. ago, I was in the frame shop that belonged to a friend of mine and she always would let me go in the back to look at the cross stitches people brought in that were waiting to be framed. When I saw this piece, it took my breath away and I told her I had to have it. She told me she didn't think the design was published and gave me the name and phone number of the woman who brought it in. I called and then went to Martha's house and she told me that her nephew had designed it. She handed me the original and said I was welcome to copy it, which I did (and then brought it right back to her).

I especially like to stitch this design for churches and pastors because I feel like it sort of "links" our church with other churches. I also like to do them for missionaries"

Yes, I'm pretty international. I'm the music specialist at an expatriate private school in China, for the children of Western businessmen. One of my best friends had lived in Mexico before coming to China When I knew she was demobilizing again, I made your cross-stitch for her as a gift of love. She adored living in Mexico and learned Spanish quite well. But she wasn't ready to leave China either! So I cross-stitched the names of Jesus in Spanish and sewed traditional Chinese silk around the edges, to represent the two countries.

"I have done the original in shades of: blue, wine, green, lavender, and, I think, tan. I mostly make them in blues, wines, or greens, but I supposed you could do anything you want. I always use 3 shades of the same color but it would be fun to see how creative people are with the colors."

This is an abbreviated version of the Ten Commandments found in Exodus,an Old Testament book chronicling Israel's departure from Egypt, the giving of the law (The Ten Commandments) and the tabernacle.

What do the Ten Commandments mean to us today?

But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments."...
He said to Him, "Which ones?" Jesus said, "You shall not murder,You shall not commit adultery,You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, Honor your father and your mother, and,You shall love your neighbor as yourself...
When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, "Who then can be saved?" But Jesus looked at them and said to them, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
Matthew 19:17-26 (NKJV)

We are saved by grace through what Christ did for us on the cross. The Ten Commandments reveal our imperfections, but only through Christ, are our sins erased.

This design fits a standard 11 x 14" frame without a mat (35.6 x 28.0cm), if stitched on 14 count Aida or 28 count evenweave or linen (over 2). 196 x 154 stitches in 15 colors, charted in DMC and Anchor Floss.
