Coloring the Bible

The Word of God is an important source of instructions from God, and many Christians have used different techniques and methodologies to help them study the Bible. One of the methods which has played an important role in my Christian walk is the use of color. By color, I do not mean the use of a highlighter to highlight significant verses, rather, it is the use of different colors to highlight different verses of different categories.

Let me say from the start that this coloring method is NOT created by me. It is written by someone in an article or a book which I have read many years ago to whom all credit is due. However, as I am no longer able to find out who the originator of the method is from to whom I can give due acknowledgement, and not wanting to have such a useful tool go to waste, I am now sharing this method in this article for the benefit of everyone else in the world.

The first thing to note before coloring the verses of the Bible is to ensure only non-smudgy writing instrument is used, for example, color pencils. Do NOT use wet highlighter or felt pens, as these may cause damage to the paper of the Bible.

- BLACK: Darkness, evil, sin
- BLUE: Sky, blessings from heaven
- BROWN: Paddy fields of unhusked rice, mission, evangelism, preaching, gospel
- GREEN: Leaf, life, Christian life and walk
- PURPLE: Royalty, Kingship, Lordship, and Priesthood of Jesus
- RED: Blood of Jesus, salvation
- YELLOW: Gold, the golden age, the second coming of Christ, the New Kingdom

Using this method, searching and identifying verses under specific categories are now made easy. As the whole Bible is gradually covered with the color schemes, remembering verses at specific areas of the Bible can also be enhanced.

If using all the colors mentioned above is not enough, symbols may be added next to verses, such as the shape of an open book to signify the Bible, the shape of a shield to signify Faith, the shape of a heart to signify Love, the star of David to signify Hope, and 'S' with an arrowed 'tail' to signify satan.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
