ENCOURAGEMENT

Are you keeping up on the reading?  3-4 chapters can seem a bit daunting if you're not already in the habit of reading the Bible daily, but once you get started, it's such interesting reading you won't want to put it down!


Reading this way also lets you get more of a "feel" for what's going on, and often, answers the "why" its going on as well.  


In the Bible study course we designed, called How to Read and Study the Bible, (quite original title I know) we encourage that you ASK QUESTIONS while reading, rather than passively taking in the words strung together into sentences.  And remember - the people are/were as real, passionate, human  and feeling as you and I are!  Emotions were at work in them, too.  Thirdly, don't assume you know the meaning of every word.  If it seems odd or out of place, definitions and word use change over time.  Grab a dictionary, use a concordance if you have one and get deeper understanding!


Above all - DON'T GIVE UP - if you get a little behind or don't understand something or even if you feel a bit bored at times!  The first - even the second, third or fourth time through Gods word can be overwhelming!  Stick with it and IT WILL STICK WITH YOU!  This living, powerful word of God will amaze you when you least expect it!
