I Don’t Think I Won the Bible Bingo…
I have just been to take part in “The People’s Bible”. It is a touring writing station, collecting the whole bible, hand-written by different people all over the country, two verses at a time. We are writing it in the King James Version.
You fill your details in and then you have to copy out two verses of scripture. Soon, the whole bible will be finished and they are going to print one “handwritten” copy for the Queen – and it will be visible somewhere online, in the fullness of time.
So, I hear you ask… what were my verses?
Did I get the Great Commission?
Did I get John 3:16?
Did I get Romans 8? or 10 verse 9?
Did I get a couple of the ten commandments?
Did I get Isaiah’s great vision of God?
Did I get “It is finished”?
No. So much fab scripture – and here’s mine…
22Ye shall defile also the covering of thy graven images of silver, and the ornament of thy molten images of gold: thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth; thou shalt say unto it, Get thee hence.
23Then shall he give the rain of thy seed, that thou shalt sow the ground withal; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures.
Isaiah chapter 30.
Yup. My legacy: the great simile concerning the sanitary towel…
However, this is just my knee-jerk reaction.
In 2 Timothy Chapter 3 I am told that:
16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
So, therein lies a challenge. I’ll need to read a bit more Isaiah and do some googling. But I shall wring some wisdom out of these verses sometime soon.
Unless anyone has any to hand?….
