Bible Study Tips

It would be great if you looked up these Scriptures as part of your Bible study time - but don't try to do them all in one sitting. Keep it simple, do just one or two questions at a time. Bible study should be an enjoyable exploration - not a tedious task.

It is important to underline in your Bible as you read! When you go back you will remember the things that stand out to you. Also, keep asking yourself, "How does this apply to my life?"


Recommended Reading:

  • The Sermon on the Mount (chapters 5, 6, and 7 of Matthew).
  • The Gospel of John
  • The Acts of the Apostles
  • Paul's letter to the Romans
  • James' letter regarding life as a Christian


It's all great!
Underline and "pray it back to God"
to make it come alive!
