Personal Narrative Essay About My Bible

Improved Essays
My most significant thing I have in my possession is my Bible. Let me reminisce on the time I got my first Bible. I received the bible from my Aunt Sarah, who is a religious woman, on Christmas. I stood in my living room watching her come in the house with a gift, I could not help but wonder, what was in the box? The box could contain anything in it. The most important thing I thought, “Was the box for me?” She walked over to me saying “Elijah open this, I got it for you.” I ripped the gift open, and there I stood with a precious gift in my hand: my first study bible.
I cannot help but admire this beautiful bible, while smiling ear to ear. The bible was wrapped in black and gold wrapping paper with a red bow before I murdered it. The bible has a green suede cover, black trimming around the edges, and when the bible is closed it has a gold shine to the pages. The cover feels smooth as a baby’s bottom. The Bible is a soft back book, but it is very durable. The back is all black with the words “Holy Bible KJV” encrypted on the side. Then I proceeded to turn the pages in my Bible. The smell of glue and paste rose in the air, like I

There is no limit to when you can read the bible. For example, a church bible must stay at church because that is the church property oppose to having one of your own. I can read the bible at morning, evening, and night. Whenever I feel upset or lonely, I can read a scripture, and feel so much better. The bible is soup for a broken soul. Moreover, I believe that I can actually communicate or get close to God by reading the bible and practicing the actions of a righteous life, like praising, dancing, singing, shouting, ministering, and praying. Along with doing these actions, the bible teaches how to do them. I use the bible for all of these things but also for a reference for when I want to help encourage someone, or

    I desire to press into God’s word to discover “who God is, who we are and why we are here”. The Bible contains all the instruction necessary for me to live a life worthy of God’s calling, comfort in difficult times, and an avenue to hear directly from God as the Holy Spirit brings revelation from the written word of God. Bible study is a privilege, not a chore to check off your list. Encouraging the practise of this discipline As a part of my role in my local churches youth program I co-lead a small group of younger girls with the privilege and responsibility of encouraging and counselling them. The time I spend with these younger girls can be spent in Bible study; though I don’t have the answers to the questions and problems they have, answers can be found in God’s word.…

    One of the things that the pastor would do and still do is pop-up scriptures. I can see now how this was a tool to challenged the members to memorize scriptures, hoping that they would grasp the root of it and apply it to their lives. I can also remember my children coming home reciting all the books of the Bible and they were excited about what they could do. This book by Keith Ferrin gives you keys to how you remember what you want through seeing, reading, speaking and living. Inductive bible study is what drives this book.…

    The stories that would be told through the Bible were eye opening and would make me wonder about how life was back then at the time when Bible was being written. At school they would always tell us that those who experienced the presence of Jesus Christ wrote the stories in the Bible, the stories in the New Testament. Jesus Christ wanted to spread his message, and through the stories I listened to during the homilies I came to form strong belief of Jesus Christ. Today, what I believe in Jesus Christ is that he is a man who loves everyone and would do anything for anyone. No matter what someone has done in their life, Jesus Christ I is willing to forgive them and love them unconditionally.…

    She said she was proud of me for making this decision at six years old and that the invitation was not the only way to get saved. We went to get my pastor and I told him how I felt. He told me that all I needed to do to get saved was ask Jesus for forgiveness and ask him into my heart and as long as I meant it with all my heart, that was all that mattered. So I did. We sat on one of the back rows in my church, I repeated the prayer after my pastor and I asked Jesus into my heart.…

    Although, I am a bit intimidated just from listening to previous students talk about it. I love reading Scripture and I make it one of my very top priorities so I am hopeful that this inductive Bible study method will challenge me and help me study the Bible of a deeper level than I have in the past. This paper discussed the text Bible Study That Works while focusing on what I personally believe to be Thompson's view of effective Bible study, what I have learned, what aspect of this method is going to challenge me the most, and how motivated I am to indulge in the inductive Bible study…

    For example, both writers use an ample amount of biblical allusions. In Bradstreet’s works, she talks about “all’s vanity” (line 36), which is a reference to the Bible, meaning that all is temporary or meaningless. Also, she mentions “dust” (lines 15 and 39) in her poems, which is a reference to the Book of Genesis. In Edwards’ case, he touches upon many biblical allusions as well. The most obvious reason is because he is a minister, and his sermons are all about God and religion in general!…

    I enjoyed the information in this book. There were a lot of interesting facts in this book about the creation of the Bible and how we got the Bible. I would recommend this book to anyone that has questions about the Bible that are not being answered in their church or Bible study. Some of the facts that I found interesting was the information about the Bible being written on leather. I did not know this, I had always though the bible was written on papyrus and with clay, which are both facts that were in the first chapter of this book.…

    They derive from creed and the behaviors that the creed says they should act in. When a Christian is saying “I believe in” they are setting values and rules that they must follow. For the members here, “it is to love your neighbor, to support each other, to do everything in the name of God and always remember that God is watching and seeing what you are doing.” The Pastor said that the reason he became a youth pastor was because he wanted to help people see themselves the way the Lord sees them and love themselves as much as he does. Education also plays a huge part in their Code. Outside of church the children are always studying the Bible and they base their life around how God would want them to live.…
