HOW TO STUDY THE BIBLE

 

1) Start with reading your Bible every day. Be sure to set aside time every in just reading your Bible with limited distractions. If you can make it the same time every day and make it a regular routine then it will become a good habit that you’ll be more likely to keep up with. 

2) Start off with praying before you read by first thanking God for His word, and then asking that you gain, knowledge, wisdom and understanding. (Proverbs 4:7).

3) Be sure to read with the intent of understanding what you are reading. It may help to read out loud so you can also hear what is being read. If you read something that you don’t understand, write it down so you can look it up and study it later. Use a good dictionary to look up words you don’t know. Write down questions about the text that come up while you’re reading and then study to answer those questions. Add your answers to your notes on that passage. When you re-read the passage later you will remember your study and have a better understanding of what you read.

4) Always read in the Bible in its context. This may be one of the most important parts of reading with understanding. To have a good understanding of what you read you must know (as much as possible) who is writing, who they are writing to, when it was written, the purpose for the writing, then APPLY APPLICATION!

The Bible teaches that one must  be "diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2Timothy 2:15). To fulfill this command we must be diligent students of God's Word.
