“I Don’t Get It!”

Are you getting anything out of your time in the Scriptures? Many tell me that the Bible just doesn’t make sense to them. They read, but nothing really hits them–nothing really changes in the way they think or act. The truth is that Bible study is just like any other study in many ways. First, you have to be ready to learn. If we approach the Bible with an “OK, I’m here — teach me if you can” attitude, we’ll never get anything out of it. What’s more, we have to involve ourselves in our learning. Don’t just open the Bible and try to immediately understand writings that are thousands of years old. Buy a Bible study book and read it along with your Bible. Purchase a study Bible with notes below the Scriptures and read the notes when you don’t understand something. Once you get involved, you’ll find that three things happen for sure. 1. You will know more about God. 2. You will know more about yourself. 3. You will know more about yourself and God. The bottom line: If you’re not getting anything out of the Scriptures, maybe it’s because you’re not putting anything into it.

“For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” Romans 15:4

In Christ,

For years now I’ve been learning a little more about Jesus each and every day. I suppose I’ve learned more than the average person, but surely I’ll not understand all of His teachings while I’m in th
