A while back we introduced a fun way to read, study and remember the scriptures with something called Bible Doubles. A Bible double is where the chapter and verse are the same, for example, John 10:10. Today I’d like to share a similarly fun way to get into The Word: it’s called Bible Sequences.
A “Bible Sequence” is a verse where the verse number is one more than the chapter number.
For example, John 1:2 is a Bible Sequence: “He was with God in the beginning”. Take the chapter (1) , and take the next number after that (2). You will be surprised to see how many meaningful verses you can remember using Bible Sequences. Of course, there are some that are completely forgettable, and others that don’t even exist. Still all in all, it’s a source of Bible fun.
Following are some examples of Bible Sequences. Your job now is to find your own and share it with our readers in the comments. Or just share this post using our Share the Love button to share on Facebook, Twitter or your favorite social network. Yes, it’s nice to share and I’m sure you already know how to do it :-).
