Christian Life Symbols
There are four main symbols of Christian life:
- The Lamb – The lamb is a symbolic representation of Jesus. The symbol is usually depicted with a wounded lamb holding a cross. It symbolizes the suffering of Jesus and his rising from the dead.
- The Dove – In Christian life, the dove is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. The dove is usually descending down over the head of a person, radiating its power and grace. There are seven gifts of the Holy Spirit: wisdom, power, wealth, strength, praise, honor, and glory.
- The Holy Eucharist – This is the symbol of the bread of life. The eucharist means to ‘give thanks’. Christians give thanks to Jesus for give them His body and His blood in Holy Communion, saving them from sin.
- Water – Water is a symbol of Christian life as used in the Baptism rite, washing away sin with the grace of the Holy Spirit. Water is used by St. John the Baptist when he baptizes Jesus in the Jordan River and is still used today.
