5.8: How to get the Most out of Reading the Bible

When I decided that I wanted to get closer to God after being a prodigal for many years, I dusted off my family’s BIG Bible. You know that one that sits either on the mantle or as in our house, on a book shelf so it would look good if the priest or pastor came to visit. Nobody actually picked it up and read it. It was a King James version — like I really knew the difference. It was difficult to understand, but God was prompting me to read it. Now, this was in the late 80s — way before the easy Bible apps we have today. I started in the beginning…

Read along with my Blog…. There are more links there…

Here are 2 websites that offer bible studies and a variety of versions in different languages: www.biblegateway.com and my favorite: YouVersion Bible App. As you get deeper into studying the Bible — find a Bible-based church, join a Bible study group and get into the habit of reading a bit every day, you’ll find a version that’s comfortable for you.

Another great, FREE app is ThroughTheWord.org. They explain the Bible chapter by chapter and for newbies, they have “journeys” which take you, in a logical progression, to get to know Jesus personally.

If you want to reap all the benefits of the Holy Spirit then…

Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.

Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly…

“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Please forgive me. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life to you. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior. I will follow you for the rest of my life. Thank You for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

“And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭24:14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Soli Deo Gloria — to God Alone be the Glory!
