Don’t be afraid to interact with the text. Highlight. Underline. Make notes in the margins. Write prayers in the corners. Date passages that help you through a trial. Write people’s names beside verses that you pray over them.

When you look back – years from now – you will be amazed at what the Lord has revealed to you, taught you, and brought you through.

Bible Study Tips A to Z: G

Bible Study Tips A to Z: “G”

God

Every word of Scripture is breathed out by God (2 Timothy 3:16.) He is on every page.

A good question to ask ourselves when studying Scripture is, “What does this tell me about God?” What is being revealed about his character, his will, his ways?

Lord, reveal yourself and help us to know you more.
