This has to be one of the easiest things to do when reading your Bible. The hardest will be choosing just one for your Golden Verses!
The ‘How-to’ for Finding and Marking Golden Verses:-
Whilst reading a chapter of the Bible, whether as part of your Devotional time or during a Bible Study, pick out a verse from each chapter that means the most to you as you read. It could be one that speaks directly to your ‘heart’. It may be a verse that stops you in your tracks. Perhaps a verse that you just don’t remember ‘seeing before’ even though you have read that particular chapter a proverbial ‘dozen’ times?! These Golden Verses are nuggets of Truth too valuable to lose track of.
STEP THE GOLDEN VERSES METHOD UP – TRY THESE IDEAS
- CHANGE THE COLOUR –
Read right through the Bible? When you start to read it again use a different colour. It may surprise you that you find other verses to mark. And after five ‘read-throughs’ using a different colour each year, you will have a visual record of how God has used His Word in different ways and at different times to speak to you.
Be sure to note the year with a block of colour inside the cover of your Bible and so track your journey
- WRITE IT OUT – Record your chosen verse either in a separate Notebook or as part of your Personal Bible Index – you can read how to make one HERE
- USE YOUR VERSE – Memorize the verse you mark each day. Keeping a record of the verse as in the previous step will help you not only have an Index of the verse you memorize but also a handy way to review and refresh your memory of verses learnt
- MAGNIFY! – Not literally! But try looking deeper into the meaning of your chosen verse. Do a Mini Bible Study. Look up the
cross referencesin the margin, and research word meanings, to gain a greater understanding of the verse
