Archives For Bible study
Just as a knowledge of the ingredients is a prerequisite for making a delicious meal, a careful reading of the Scriptures is required for a proper understanding.
A Bible that’s doing its job becomes well worn and well marked. Its pages begin to fray, just like a favorite family cookbook. The more we study God’s Word, the better acquainted with it become. And once we’ve learned how to dig into it ourselves, we will be able to teach others how to do the same.
The Spirit sometimes teaches us personally, but at other times, He uses books or Christian teachers. I don’t know how many times the Lord has awakened me at night and started teaching from passages I had pondered the day before. I prefer to attend day school, but if the teacher wants to enroll me in night school, I am willing to learn. I keep a small lamp on my nightstand, right next to a pen and a pad of paper, and I write down what I heave learned; if I don’t write it down, it will be forgotten by morning!
