2 Timothy 2:15 say’s Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
A few things to consider when your reading the bible.
1. How might this verse apply to my present situation?
2. What is this passage teaching me?
3. Is there a promise here for me to recognize?
- 4. Is this passage revealing a particular sin that I must avoid?
- 5. Is God giving a command I must obey?
- 6. How should this truth affect my relationship with others?
- 7. Is my spirit in harmony with what is being said?
- 8. How can I grow closer to God in light of what He is showing me through His word?
Anytime we open our bible to read we should never just read it as if it’s a chore, we should have the mindset knowing that it’s our life-line. Take your time reading the verses and if need be re-read it until it gets in your spirit.
