Remember It

Contemplate these questions, then click on each question to see the answer.
1. What are some examples of “Bible Reading Projects” that the speaker gave?
Taking notes as you read through the Bible of specific topics, like prayer or the authority of God’s Word. Create your own concordance for specific topics.
2. How did the speaker explain what it means to add Bible reading to your prayers?
Using specific words and phrases from the Bible in your prayers. For example, using the prayer of Ephesians 1 and praying that back to God.
3. What does it mean to read-meditate on the Bible?
It means to contemplate and meditate on the very words and phrases of the Bible, not just surface reading. The goal here is not just reading large tracts of the Bible, but let the specifics sink in.

Discuss It

  1. How would you describe your Bible reading over the last five years? What plans or methods have you used?
  2. What new ideas for energizing your Bible reading have you learned from this lesson?
  3. What are the biggest hindrances in your establishing and keeping to consistent Bible reading? What steps can be taken immediately to overcome these hindrances?

Apply It

  1. Memorize James 1:22-24, which emphasizes becoming not just hearers of the Word, but doers of the Word.
  2. Using Paul’s prayer of Ephesians 1, write out that prayer in your own words. Where appropriate, use it to pray for someone else.
