Help with Scripture Writing

IMG_1827A few months ago, I wrote a blog about Scripture Writing here. Since we use this spiritual discipline at Buried Treasures Home, I saw a need to make a list of what to look for in a scripture passage so that one can get the most out of God’s word. Below is a list I compiled of items to focus on when participating in Scripture Writing. You may come up with more on  your own. But for now, hopefully this is a list you can print and use as you interact with God’s Word through Scripture Writing.

Diagramming Scripture:

Names of God – Almighty God, Heavenly Father, the Lord etc.

Action words – go, stay, wait, pray etc.

A command for His children

 Characteristics about God or Jesus or the Holy Spirit

Characteristics about us in our rebellion

Characteristics about us after we are redeemed

Characteristics about God’s Word

Consequences of rebellion

Results and rewards of obedience

A promise to His children

The words IF, THEN, THEREFORE, ALWAYS, BUT

Things God will do and things we are to do

Phrases that begin with “so that” or “in order that”

Place your name where there are personal pronouns

 

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
