John 6:35 I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. NRSV
To memorise 7 sayings use the 7 days of the week as hooks for each sayings. In preparation for learning all seven sayings fill in the table with your own information. If Covid 19 has disrupted your normal routine think back to when you had one !
|Day of week||Routine event||Location||Key I am word|
Here is my example working in a school:
|Day of week||Routine event||Location||Key ‘I am’ word|
|Monday||Date night||Dining room||Bread|
|Tuesday||Orchestra rehearsal||Concert Hall||Light|
|Thursday||Staff meeting||Staff room||Shepherd|
Hang this verse on MONDAY in the LOCATION and at the EVENT you have chosen.
So for me Monday is Date night with my wife in our living room. We are having a meal so BREAD is an easy word to remember!
Change some words into ‘sound like’ words…..
“Whoever” sounds like an owl’s ‘Te whit te woo” to me. I imagine an owl flies in and sits on the table and eats bread- not hunger. The owl flies away up into a bee buzzing tree ( Believes = tree) and drinks from a cup in the tree.
I am the bread of life;
your location e.g. dining room
bread of life =bread slice
whoever comes to me shall not hunger
whoever = Owl
Owl comes to me – lands on shoulder!
I feed it !
and whoever believes in me shall never thirst
whoever = Owl
Believe = bee- leaves
Owl flies up into a tree and drinks
