Scripture Writing – Week 2

Welcome to week 2 of the June and July Scripture Writing Plan.

How did you like the first week of the plan? Did you write more verses than what are listed on the plan each day? I found that reading the surrounding verses to understand the context usually resulted in my choosing to write out a few more verses. After writing the verses I like to underline or circle key words and make a few notes in my notebook. Also finding this scripture writing activity to be a helpful guide for praying.

I’m really enjoying this theme of God’s Word. How about you? Please share something about your scripture writing experience in the comments below.

Be sure to download a copy of the plan, grab a notebook along with your Bible and join us in the Psalms this week.

Starts Today

June 1, 2020

Today is the start of the June and July scripture writing plan. The theme is God’s Word.

Reading the Bible can be compared to eating food. Here are a few of the ways and you can probably think of more.

  • Needed daily
  • Provides nourishment
  • Should be chewed well
  • Needs to be digested

Scripture writing helps you to slow down and focus on a single verse or small portion of scripture. Slowing down gives more opportunity to notice things that might have been missed before. You will find that the practice of writing scripture will help you listen carefully for what God is saying through His word.

Bible Study Methods

Last week was the last of “Question of the week” on the Facebook page.

Copy of Question of the Week

This post is a follow up on the topic of Bible study methods.

BUT FIRST

Before reading this post please take a brief pause to ask yourself one simple but extremely important question:

Why do I want to study the Bible?

Why is such a powerful question! It clears the confusion and brings what is truly important into focus. Once you are certain of your why then it’s time to think about how.

Bible study for me is an activity with one constant goal that doesn’t change regardless of the method used for the study. My why is to know Jesus. I don’t just want to learn and understand about Him but truly actually KNOW JESUS! 

However

I have definitely experienced times of losing sight of the true goal and forgetting my why. To know more about that problem, please read this earlier post Purpose of Bible Study


Bible Study Methods

A method is a way to go about doing a Bible study. You could say that a method of Bible study is a kind of framework or structure to organize what you are doing.

Choosing a method for personal Bible study

Let’s explore this subject by considering a few questions:

  • what comes to mind when you think of Bible study methods?
  • why use a method at all?
  • Do you currently use a particular method?
  • Does it matter what method you use?

I think it does matter what method of studying the Bible is used. Not because one way is necessarily better than another but there is likely a certain Bible study method that is more beneficial for you. Discovering the best method will result in an enjoyable, rich and rewarding experience.

If you are finding Bible study to be a great experience you are probably using the best method for you. But if not, you may want to explore different types of Bible study methods.
