Bible Reading Tips

Need Help Reading Your Bible?

Here are some tools that I use to read my Bible. But my biggest suggestion would be to find whatever works best for you.

S.P.E.C.K. Method

I would suggest the S.P.E.C.K. Method as a starting place to reading God’s word. You’re not always going to have something for every letter in a single passage, but the point is to slow down when you read so you don’t miss God. You can use this for any book of the Bible. A great starting point when reading God’s Word is the book of John. You’re going to meet Jesus and how He comes to people wherever they are at in life.

NavPress Study Book

What I have found that works for me is using a NavPress Study Book as a guide. I found these at a local book store and have now used these books ten different times. I keep recommending them because they offer so much! Some lessons are longer than others, but it’s not about quantity but quality time. So if you only get to read 3 verses, that’s okay. It’s not a race or competition. If you slow down when you read God’s Word, that’s when you’re opening the door to truly experience Him. These books offer a “For Further Study” option, personal application questions, study guide questions, key pieces of information to help you better understand the context or historical significance, and so much more. I genuinely would love to have the whole series, but I’m not quite there yet.

 

Again, these are simply ideas to help you get started.
