How to read the Bible?

 

We believe that the Bible is a unified story that leads us to Jesus. Crucial to growing in relationship with Jesus is spending time reading the Bible. The Bible is often called God’s Word, because it is the way that God speaks to us; telling the story of how God has been faithful to his people and revealing his plan to restore the whole world, including us!
If you are new to reading the Bible, a great place to start is in one of the gospel books. We recommend the book of Mark or the book of John using the NIV or NLT translation. To get the most out of reading the Bible, create a daily rhythm of reading at a set time of day. As you read, be expectant that God will speak to you through the words and stories. Make space to reflect on what you are reading by asking what the passage reveals about God, about humanity, and God’s plan to restore. Consider how the Holy Spirit is working in you to help you become more like Jesus and an action step that you could take to grow in this area.

Prayer

How Do I Pray

One of the best ways to connect with God is through prayer. Prayer is talking with God, listening for God’s voice, and spending time in his presence. In conversation with God, we can speak to him, he hears us and can respond to what we say. He is not far off or distant. He is deeply concerned with our lives, thoughts, and feelings. He desires to hear from us. We can speak to him, and we can be honest with him about our lives as they really are.

In prayer we can also learn to listen for God’s voice. He can speak to us internally through things like impressions, thoughts, or feelings. He can also speak to us externally through things like the Bible, our circumstances, or other people. The best way to learn what God sounds like is by reading the Bible. the Bible is always the measure by which we discern if what we are hearing from God is accurate, because God will always speak and act in ways that are consistent with his character as he is revealed in the Bible.

Prayer Practice

Prayer starts by making space to be present to God. You can speak to him and listen for his voice. Many believers find it helpful to set aside specific times of day to practice prayer. A simple format for prayer is to start by giving thanks to God for who he is and what he has done in your life. Next, move into a time of sharing your heart, experiences, thoughts, and desires with him. Afterwards, make some space to listen for his voice speaking to you internally. Next, turn to a time of intercession, praying for him to move in the people and situations in your life. End by choosing to trust in Jesus and resting in his love for you.
