How to Study the Bible: Part 2

Our Commitment: We will live for the bigger picture, taking action locally and globally.

1 John 3:17-18, If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

Take A Step: Because God's always one step outside of our comfort zone.

Hebrews 4:12, For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.


2 Timothy 2:15,Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.

4 Questions To Ask When Studying God's Word

WHAT IS IT SAYING?


  1. To the extent that we are ignorant of the Word, the enemy will have victory over us. 
  2. You need to trust what it says.
  3. When we make the bible adjust to our lifestyle, rather than our lifestyle adjusting to the bible, it’s we ourselves that we worship, not God.  


WHAT DOES IT MEAN?


  1. The best way to understand what the bible means is to become students of Context.
  2. Four Context Questions: Who, What, When, & Where. 


WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO ME?


  1. We don’t read the Bible just for Information, we read it for Transformation.
  • God desires to give us not just the Word but a Word.
  • Logos - Written Word of God
  • Rhema - Quickened (Spoken) Word of God


HOW DO I APPLY THIS TO MY LIFE?


  1. When we make the bible adjust to our lifestyle, rather than our lifestyle adjusting to the bible, it’s we ourselves that we worship, not God. 
  2. If you want the Word to work, then you have to work the Word.
