5 Tips for Learning to Study the Bible

So, the best way to really study the Bible is treat it like you would any other text that you are going to be studying…get serious about it! In today’s busy world with lots of expectations to adhere by, it can be difficult to just sit down and read. I know, boring as it may sound but the benefits truly outweigh the bore. Here are five tips on learning to study the Bible, in other words, the precursor or the ways to get motivated!

  • Pray first and ask the Lord to teach you His truth through the Holy Spirit.
  • Grab a notebook and highlighters. Don’t be afraid to write in your Bible, either. Underline, circle, and dissect Scripture in a way that helps you understand.
  • Grab other tools or apps that can help you understand what you are reading – many can be accessed online (concordances, study guides, Bible dictionaries, blueletterbible.org, etc.).
  • Don’t just read a verse and walk away! Ask questions about that verse (the 5 w’s are a good start – who, what, when, where, why). These questions help you understand the context.
  • Find a Bible study method that really works for YOU! Verse mapping could be a great way to get organized for beginners and map out your topics and goals each day and/or week.

These may seem like “no-brainers” but it’s easier to come up with excuses to not study rather than start. We hope this little bit helps get you motivated and make the process easier for you to reach your spiritual goals.

How to Memorize Scripture

Pray

Like I said earlier the Lord desires for us to know his word and whenever we are obedient to him and seek to do his will, he will give us the strength and ability to do it. So before you start trying to memorize scripture by your own power make sure you take a moment to ask him for the power to do so and he will provide.

Start Small

Instead of memorizing a verse that is 60 words or more, start with something smaller. Perhaps a verse that is around 30 words or less. Or if there is a verse you really have the desire to memorize that is quite long, break it down into sections. Take a few days to memorize the first part and then a few more days to memorize the second part and so on.

Write it Down

When trying to retain information one of the best tools we have is a pencil and paper. There’s good evidence that the act of writing itself helps us remember things better. I suggest writing down your memory verse between 5 and 10 times in a notebook every few days until you have it memorized. Writing them down in a notebook is also a great way to keep track of all the verses you’ve memorized.

Display the Verse Around Your Home

Write the verse on a chalkboard in your home. Write it on a mirror. Find the image of the verse on Pinterest and print it out and display it in areas of your home that you spend the most time. Constantly seeing the verse really helps to imprint it on your mind

Repeat, Repeat, Repeat

This kind of goes without saying but you definitely need to be constantly reciting the scripture out loud or in your mind. I like to do this when I’m in the shower, doing dishes, cooking or basically whenever I’m doing something that doesn’t require too much brain power. This is where having the scripture displayed around your home can be very beneficial as well.
