The Importance of Studying Our Bible

The importance of Studying our Bible

2 Tim. 2:15


In order to know our bibles really well I think it takes a combination of several things.

1.     We have to hear the word of God. Romans 10:17

2.     The next thing we have to do is read and study the word of God. Deuteronomy 17:18-19

3.     Memorize the word of God. Deuteronomy 6:6 Colossians 3:16

I want to share just a few tips for how I try to memorize scripture.

1.     Pick one scripture every week and make it your goal to have it memorized and etched in your brain by the end of the week.

2.     Write it down and take a few moments every day whether it's during your prayer or study time

3.     Start with a phrase and continue to add phrases to it until you know the whole thing.

4.      Spend one day a week reviewing verses that you previously memorized just so you never forget them.


The final thing you must do to really know your bible is to meditate on the words that God has given you and apply them to your life.

John 14:27

When meditating upon this scripture or any other for that matter, you enter it not as an observer or a reader, but as an active participant.
