Understanding the Bible

 

Understanding the Bible

If you don’t remember anything else from this little booklet, please forge this into your memory bank:  There are Three (3) necessary, but simple steps for understanding the Bible:

  1. Open your Bible
  2. Pray
  3. Read your Bible….every day.

It really is no more complicated than that.  You can’t even begin to imagine the things you will learn about God, about Jesus, about life, about yourself, from the Bible, until you  1.  open it and 3.  read it.

But….I know so little to start with….I’ll be confused….it won’t make sense….there will be words I can’t understand….I can’t pronounce all the names….so many people have so many different opinions about what things mean….how will I ever understand it?

That’s where 2.  pray  comes in.  You see, God Himself wrote the Bible.  He “breathed” it into 40 men over a period of 1,500 years.  Everything each of those 40 men wrote agrees with everything the rest of the 40 men wrote.  It is all from God.

So, if He wrote it, He knows how to explain it to us.  He knows where to direct us for answers within the book itself.  After you open your Bible, pray – talk to the Author – and ask Him to open up your understanding.  He wrote it for you.  He will answer your prayer.

  1. Isn’t it great that God doesn’t make it hard. He says to ask and we will receive.
