PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
I am a mess 😂 I totally filmed the PERFECT take then realized the camera wasn’t filming at all. The perfectionist in wanted to keep filming this until it’s perfect but I decided that the imperfect me was enough.
SO this is just a brief inside look at how to study Scripture.
1. It isn’t about the “quiet time”.
Its about meeting God. It’s about saying Hi, how are you? It’s about being present and ready to learn grow and love.
2. Context that Itch.
We cant just read a verse then apply. We have to look at the why behind it. Who wrote it. Why did they write it? Who did they write it to?
Understanding the whole story means we can understand the true message.
3. Find clarification.
You don’t understand something? It’s okay! Look it up in commentary! No shame man. Each resource has a different perspective so check out multiple! Here is the study Bible I use : CSB Study Bible
4. Cross reference is your friend.
Follow the rabbit trail from old testament to new testament. The whole Bible compliments itself. It is all true just written by different people with different perspectives. How awesome is it that God breathed out His word for us USING us!
5. HAVE FUN!
Seriously. It’s suppose to be life giving & man it definitely can be! Just move past the thoughts of “I have to study the Bible” to “I get to spend time with God!”
