HOW I STUDY MY BIBLE
“Show me someone’s bible that is falling apart and I’ll show you someone who’s life is not.” – Charles Spurgeon
Studying, marking, highlighting, and digging deep into your Bible is like digging for gold. It promises a 100% guarantee that you will find gold if you search for it in His Word.
7 The law of the Lord is perfect,
refreshing the soul.

Why is it so important to teach people to know how to study the Bible for themselves? In a world with YouTube sermons, epic church services, and speakers with extraordinary speaking skills, why should YOU learn how to create sermons for yourself?

An old proverb once said, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day but teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” The same is true in the church today….Give someone a good Sunday sermon and you give him a meal for the day, but teach someone how to study their Bible for themselves, and you will feed them for a lifetime.

let your glory be over all the earth.
6 They spread a net for my feet—
I was bowed down in distress.
They dug a pit in my path—
but they have fallen into it themselves.
7 My heart, O God, is steadfast,
my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and make music.
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law. – Galatians 5:22-23
