    cont

The intake of the Word of God is the foundational

Reading Gods Word How to have a quiet time
4
A designated time and place
  • When is your best time of day?
  • A time when you will not be interrupted (15-30
    minutes is a good starting point)
  • A place where you will not be interrupted
  • A logistical A plan, B plan, and C plan

5
A flexible Bible plan
  • A Bible-reading plan
  • A specific book to study
  • A devotional book to help your study
  • The MacArthur Daily Bible
  • A Study Bible
  • D.A. Carson, For the Love of God
  • A topic that you are interested in studying

6
Know your Bible read smart!
  • Reading different genres in Scripture mean
    different approaches to Bible reading
  • Narrative (story) usually you have to read much
    larger sections of Scripture to understand the
    biblical truths being communicated
  • Prophecy the heavy use of metaphor and
    symbolism makes more study necessary before
    application can come
  • Psalms knowing the historical background makes
    interpretation and application much easier

7
Know your Bible read smart!
  • Reading different genres in Scripture mean
    different approaches to Bible reading
  • Proverbs often one verse (or even one half of a
    verse) is sufficient for meditation and
    application
  • The Epistles (letters) one verse may be enough
    for meditation and application. However, often
    there is a larger flow or argument which must be
    seen and understood as well

8
A notebook to journal
  • Log what you read
  • Interact with the text
  • Questions that you have
  • Things youd like to study further
  • Points and principles that you learn
  • Draw out the flow, outline what youre reading

9
A notebook to journal
  • Specific application how do I need to change in
    light of what I learned?
  • Encourage me?
  • Correct me?
  • Convict me?
  • Inform me?
  • How does what I have learned today intersect with
    my life right now?
  • Write down one specific application for the day
  • Write down any verses you would like to memorize
    write them on an index card and keep it with you

10
