READ AND STUDY THE BIBLE

Rev. Vazilai ( MEC Pastor)

 

 

Introduction
       I greet all of Mara University Students, and all audiences and readers in the name of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Saviour who is the sources of our life and our wisdom. These days in my mind coming are to write how to read (study) the Bible for students those who are in secular field. I therefore entitled the topic as “Read and Study the Bible” whether you accept it or not. It is needed to read and study the Bible for every one because it is very important for spiritual growth as well as for physical and intellectual development for all. The Psalmist claimed that “Thy word is a lamp to my feet, a light for my path” (Ps.119:105). Therefore we must read the Bible. We should give a time to read the Bible because it is very important for entire life.

Why is it Important to Read and Study the Bible?

     The Bible is the word of God. Why is God’s word so important? Because it contains God’s mind and will for our life. (2Tim.3:16-17). It is the only source of absolute divine authority for as a child of God and a servant of Jesus Christ. It is infallible in its totality: “the law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul, the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.” (Ps.19:7) It is inerrant in it parts: “Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add to his words, lest He rebuke you, and you be found liar. (Prov. 30:5-6). It is complete: (Rev.22:18-19). It is authoritative and final: “Forever, O Lord, your word is settled in heaven” (Ps.119:89). It is totally sufficient for our needs: (2Tim.3:16-17). It will accomplish what it promises. (Is. 55:11). It provides the assurance of our salvation. (John.8:47; cf.20:31).  And everyone does have reasons for reading. God has spoken to us. (Heb. 1:1-2) and we need to know what He has said.

How will We Benefit from Reading and Studying the Bible?

        Millions of pages of material are printed every week. Thousands of new books are published each month. This would not be surprising to Solomon who said, “...be admonished... Of making many books there is no end.”(Ecct.12:12).
       Even with today’s wealth of books and computer helps, the Bible remains the only source of divine revelation and power that can sustain Christians in their “daily walk with God”. Note these significant promises that can sustain Christians in their “daily walk with God”. Note these significant promises in the Scripture.

01.                        The Bible is the source of truth. (John 17:17)

02.                        The Bible is the source of God blessing when obeyed. (Lk. 11:28)

03.                        The Bible is the source of victory. (Eph. 6:17)

04.                        The Bible is the source of growth. (1 Pet 2:2)

05.                        The Bible is the source of power. (Rom 1:16)

06.                        The Bible is the source of guidance. (Ps. 119:105)

07.                        The Bible is the source of to know Lord. (Rm. 3:10)

08.                        The Bible is the source of our life.

What Should Be Our Response to the Bible?

     Because the Bible is so important and because it provides unparalleled eternal benefits, then these should be our responses.

01.  Believe it. (John. 6:68,69)

02.  Honour it. (Job. 23:12)

03.  Love it. (Ps. 119:97)

04.  Obey it. (1 John 2:5)

05.  Guard it. (1 Tim. 6:20)

06.  Fight for it. (Jude 3)

07.  Preach it. (2 Tim 7:10)

08.  Study it. (Ezra 7:10)

We are to practice what we read and reflect upon it. This is in action. God wants us to confess our sin, believe Him, and obey His word.

 

Who Can Read and Study the Bible?

     Not everyone can be a Bible student. But everyone can be read and study the Bible. Everyone should read the Bible, regardless of background, heritage, race, position, age, education, or even spiritual relationship to God. Check yourself on these necessary on these qualifications for studying the Word with blessing.

 

(a). Are you saved by faith in Jesus Christ? (1 Cor. 2:14,16)

(b). Are you hungering for God’s Word? (1 Pet. 2:2)

(c). Are you searching God’s Word with diligence? (Acts. 17:11)

(d). Are you seeking holiness? (1 Pet. 1:14,16)

(e). Are you Spirit-filled? (Eph. 5:18)

(f). Are you need God?

(g). Are you want to know the will of God?

 

What Are the Basic of Bible Study?

Personal Bible study, in precept, is simple. I want to share with you 5 steps to Bible study which will give you a pattern to follow:

 

Step One: Reading

            Read a passage of Scripture repeatedly until you understand its theme, meaning the main truth of the passage. Develop a plan on how you will an approach reading through the Bible. There are many good Bible reading plans available, but here is one that I have found helpful. Read through the Old Testament at least once a year. Read the Bible at least once in everyday.

 

Step Two: Interpreting

          In Acts 8:30, Philip asked the Ethiopian eunuch, “Do you understand what you are reading?” Or put another way, “What does the Bible mean by what it says?” It is not enough to read the text and jump directly to application, we must first determine what it means, otherwise the application may be incorrect. As you interpret Scripture, several common errors should be avoided.

 

01. Do not draw any conclusions at the price of proper interpretation. That is, do not make the Bible says what you want it to say, but rather let it says what God intended when He wrote it.

 

02. Avoid superficial interpretation. The first step in interpreting the Bible is to recognize the four gaps we have to bridge: Language, Culture, Geography, and History.

 

03. Do not spiritualize the passage. Interpret and understand the passage in its normal, literal, historical, grammatical sense, just like you would understand any other piece of literature you were were reading today. The books of the Bible were written many centuries ago. For us to understand today what God was communicating then there are several gaps that need to be bridged: the Language gap, the Cultural gap, the Geographical gap, and the Historical gap. Proper interpretation, therefore, takes time and disciplined effort.

 

Step Three: Evaluating

          Not it is time to consult others to insure that you have the proper interpretation. Remember, the Bible will never contradict itself. In your evaluation, be a true seeker.

 

Step Four: Applying

          We should have one question is “How does God’s truth penetrate and change my own life?” Studying Scripture without allowing it to penetrate to the depths of your soul would be like preparing a banquet without eating it. Bible study is not complete until we ask ourselves, “What does this mean for my life and how can I practically apply it?” If you skip this step, you will never enjoy your Bible study and the Bible will never change your life.

 

Step Five: Correlating

          By correlating and cross-referencing, you will begin to build a sound doctrinal foundation by which to live. When you read and study the Bible, use the basic study step as I have mentioned above. Don’t miss reading and studying the Bible because the Bible will teach you for your life. Bible is the source of all what you needed for your daily lives.

 

Conclusion

          It is not enough just to read and study the Bible. We must meditate upon it. If there is a command to be obeyed, we have to obey it. If there is a promise to be embraced, we have to claim it. If there is a warning to be followed, we need to be done it. If there is a way to have faith, we must believe it. This is the ultimate step: we submit to the Scripture and let it transforms our lives, our attitude, our life and our land as well as our country. Let’s read and study the Bible during youth and apply it for life and nations. May God use you in a mighty way for his Kingdoms.
