Bible Basics - Reading And Meditating On Scripture

 

Ice Breaker:   What was one of your favorite stories you read?

Questions:   Reading the Bible does not come naturally; what is the progression these verses show?

 Exodus 24:7  -  Joshua 8:34-35  -  Dueteronomy 31:11  -  1 Timothy 4:13-14 

Romans 10:14-17  -  Ephesians 3:1-7  -  Colossians 4:16  -  1 Thessalonians 5:27

Acts 8:28-31  -  1 Timothy 4:15-16  -  2 Corinthians 3:2

 

To meditate can conjure up many definitions in our minds, but in the least it means to think about something.  What do these verses want us to think about?

 

Psalm 19:17-14  -  Psalm 48:9  -  Psalm 77:11-15  -  Psalm 119:97,99  -  Psalm 143:5

 

Read Joshua 1:8 and Psalm 1:1-3.  Meditating on God’s word can help in obeying God even in the midst of hard circumstances.  What happened to Joseph in Genesis 39 and how did David prosper in Psalm 25:12-15?

 

Prayer:   Pray for personal help in reading the Bible or how to meditate on God and His attributes.
