Bible study basics
Bible study is one of the most worthwhile undertakings we as people of God can do.
Proverbs 4:20-22 says "My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thy heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
Studying the bible, or God's word can bring you life and health.
Proverbs 4:4-7 says " Let thine heart retain My words; keep my commandments and live. Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not and she shall preserve thee; love her and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom, and with all thy getting get understanding. Exalt her and she shall promote thee; she shall bring thee to honor, when thou dos embrace her.
Here, it says keeping God's word in your heart will promote you, give you honor, preserve and keep you.
In todays world we study many things. People get Bachelor, Master and Doctoral degrees. While learning is important, what we learn to value is even more important in this day and time. This bible study page will seek to help you value the word of God which is all we can and should depend on. It will also seek to provoke you to love and understand what God is saying to us today. God wants you to understand what He is saying, so we will use various versions of the bible which will help to clearly state what God is saying and ask questions that only you can answer in the light of God's word.
Get a pen, notebook and a comfortable chair and answer these questions about the above scriptures.
1. How can you attend to the words of God?
2. How do you hear God's sayings?
3. How do you keep God's word in your heart?
4. What does God's wisdom mean to you?
5. How do you embrace wisdom?
6. What difference does it make if you don't know God's word?
We will answer these questions next.
Next we will also study deliverance. We all want to be delivered from many negative things. Bad marriages, terrible bosses, low paying dead-end jobs, loneliness, fear, the economy...the list could be endless, but Jesus came to deliver us. Somehow we stay stuck in our situations because we don't remember what God has said about being free.
Until next time, stay free in Christ Jesus and remember, GOD IS VERY FOND OF YOU.
