How to Read the Word of God

How do you read/study the Word of God? Do you reflect on it? or interpret it? How does it struck you? How do you apply it in your life? I don’t want to just “read” the bible Pastor. You know what I mean, right?

I think the most important thing to do is to first have a habit of reading your Bible daily. The more you read it, the more it gets into you.

Secondly, get a translation that would fit you. I am now using ESV since I would like a really good translation for studying.

Thirdly, get supplemental study guides. I am using ESV study Bible and Warren Weirsbe’s Commentaries. The internet is also full of helpful guides. Just learn how to sift through the reliable ones and the dangerous ones.

Lastly, pray for revelation. This is I think the most crucial of all. When God shows His word to us, it hits us.

Hope you enjoy reading the Scripture.
