Here's some code you can use to draw text in OpenGL (LWJGL in this case) given a position, character size, kerning scale, and the text!

Each character is a grid of points (3 columns, 5 rows) and a glyph is defined by lines from one point to another.

Here's what it looks like (1.0 pixel thickness, 12 pixels tall, 8 pixels wide):

7 Segment. 2 on the top, 4 on the sides, and 1 in the middle.
