Use Your Bible ...

Robert F. Turner

This page is usually devoted to rules for Bible study, or to an outline which encourages personal searching of the scriptures. The later purpose prompts the following somewhat unrelated material.

JESUS CHRIST SAYS "I AM-----" 1. The bread of life------------------------------------------------------------------- Jn.6:35 2. The light of the world------------------------------------------------------------ Jn.8:12 3. The door----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Jn.10:9 4. The good shepherd-------------------------------------------------------------- Jn.10:11 5. The resurrection, and the life------------------------------------------------- Jn.11:25 6. The way, the truth, and the life---------------------------------------------- Jn.14:6 7. The vine------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Jn.15:5

Give yourself the satisfaction and profit of turning to each of these passages, and read enough of the context to grasp the significance of Christ's self-revealing assertions.

TO HIM THAT OVERCOMETH......... 1. "will I give to eat of the tree of life"----------------------------------------- Rev.2:7 2. "shall not be hurt of the second death."--------------------------------- Rev.2:11 3. "will I give to eat of the hidden manna,

and will give him a white stone----"-----------------------------

Rev.2:17 4. "will I give power over the nations---

will give him the morning star."----------------------------------

Rev.2:26-f. 5. "shall be clothed in white raiment; and I

will not blot out his name out of the

book of life, but I will confess his

name before my Father, and -- angels."----------------------

Rev.3:5 6. "will I make a pillar in the temple of my

God, ----- write on him my new name."-----------------------

Rev.3:12 7. "will I grant to sit with me in my throne"-------------------------------- Rev.3:21

Although these seven promises, coming from a book of highly figurative language, present technical problems in interpretation, the majesty and greatness of the promises are unmistakable. They urge us to faithful service, to the very end of our earthly journey.
