For the past two weeks, our preaching team has dug into what it means to be a community of believers stirred by Scripture. Sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start with the Bible so we wanted to provide you with some resources for engaging with Scripture on your own.
1. Dig deeper into the themes of the Bible
Take a step back and see the big-picture perspective of what God is doing. Check out these resources: 66 Love Letters, The Bible Project, How to Read the Bible Book by Book, What’s in the Bible, or According to Plan.
2. Listen to Scripture
3. Sing the Bible
4. Bible Reading Plans
While we want to be sure that our goal is not just “getting through” Scripture—but rather that we spend time in the Word to let it get through to us—sometimes having a reading plan can be a help. Check out these resources: YouVersion Bible App., BibleGateway, or The One Year Bible.
5. Daily Devotionals
6. Inductive Bible Study
7. Meditate on God’s Word
Here are some methods of meditating on a particular passage of the Bible: Lectio Divina, Memorization, and Journaling. Additionally, here are some other resources: Praying the Bible or Scripture Memory Booklet.
