Questions to ask when reading the Bible
What did this Scripture mean when it was written?
- Who, What, Where, When, Why
- What is the cultural relevance to what is going on in the passage
What is the timeless truth behind what God is saying?
- What work is God doing?
- How does this passage either reveal or reflect the glory of God?
How does it apply now to me?
- Who am I like in the passage?
- What do I need to do in response to reading?
Review last week’s challenge:
- What did making the decision to serve God wholeheartedly look like for you?
- How did student’s make their faith and dedication to Christ public?
- How has God used this so far?
- Why do you think we emphasize the idea that being in the Word daily is important?
- In Joshua 1:8, meditating on the Word of God is the focus. What do you think meditating on God’s Word actually looks like?
- In your mind, what’s an honest assessment of how often you read the Bible for yourself? Of those times, how often do you actually meditate on and apply what you read?
- How do you think your life would change if you read your Bible and meditated on God’s Word day and night?
Choose this day to MEDITATE ON GOD’S WORD. Come up with an action plan of what this looks like in your life and put it into practice this week. Ask God to bring your reading back to mind all day as you strive to apply it. Let us know next week how you did and what you learned!
