Reading the Bible can be a challenge at times! However, the Bible is important to our relationship with God! It's it's truth or his reality. It shows us the way He designed life to operate. It deals with tough issues and guides us to His heart.
SO HOW DO WE UNDERSTAND?
A unique way to read the Bible is the "One Word Bible Study." Taking time and thinking through every word and writing other words that have similar meaning in the column." For example...
John 3:16-For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, so that whoever believes in Him will not die but have eternal life.
ONE WORD BIBLE STUDY...
John 3:16--For God so loved (valued) the world (all people), that He gave His one and only Son, so that whoever (everyone) believes (trusts) in Him will not die but have eternal life (on-going life).
I challenge you to continue to read God's text message every day. The one word Bible study forces us to slow down, meditate and think. It helps us digest the truth of what God is saying and makes it easier to apply to our lives.
