Knowing God: Bible Study
Who is God? What does He expect from me? What changes now that I am a Christian? The Bible is often compared to an owner’s manual in many ways; the analogy is an apt one. Within the pages of the Bible you will discover not only God’s plan for you and for the world, but also tangible and practical steps to experiencing the abundant life He promises in the Bible. Inspired by God and written over an extended period by various authors, the Bible is a remarkably consistent account of relationship—our relationship with God and with each other.
Bible study methods are as varied as the people who adopt them. Some choose a reading plan that provides them with guidelines to read a portion (New Testament, Old Testament, Psalms, Proverbs) or the complete Bible in a specific amount of time. Others will benefit from a daily devotional such as Living in the Active Word which is available free of charge in both the printed or online format. However and whenever you read and study the Word of God, the essential element is that you are daily measuring yourself against its wisdom while catching a glimpse of the extravagance of God’s love for you. Remember that His Spirit will both reveal the verses meanings and empower you to live in a way that blesses you and pleases Him.
