How To Study the Bible Systematically

2 Timothy 2:15; 3:13-17

Here we will share some methods and ideas to help accomplish the desired goal of successful Bible study. These are ideas not offered as the last word on the subject, but rather as a motivational tool to help you on your way.

God tells us to study His Word (2 Timothy 2:15). Study in this verse comes from a Greek word meaning to use speed, make effort, be prompt, earnest, give diligence, endeavor, and labor. If we are to learn and excel, we must exercise discipline and give the Bible priority. Casual reading, skipping from place to place, or non-meditative and disrupted study will never produce the needed knowledge of God’s Word. Dig Deep (Luke 6:48), build upon the sure foundation, and then the wind, rain, and flood will not destroy what you build.
