How to Read the Bible

I’ve said multiple times over the past several days that we need to read the Bible to navigate all that’s happening. We need to understand God’s truth in order to love and act justly – to understand how to respond and come together in unity.⁠⠀

But after chatting with a friend recently who is new to reading the Bible on her own, I was reminded that many I’m speaking to on this platform might not know how to do that. I get it. the Bible can be super intimidating at first! I didn’t grow up reading it on my own or understanding it. I only started reading it for myself eight years ago. It’s never too late to start.⁠⠀

Even for seasoned Bible readers, keeping this little “roadmap” in mind as we read the Bible can be super helpful:⁠⠀

1) Pray. Ask God to give you understanding.⁠⠀
2) What’s the context?/What are the facts?⁠⠀
3) What did you learn about God? Yourself? Humanity?⁠⠀
4) How will you apply what you learned to your life.⁠
