How To Get The Most Out of Bible Reading

By: Jenifer Metzger

Bible study is vital to your Christian walk. The Word of God is one part, the other being prayer, of our communication with God. But knowing how to study the Bible isn't always easy.

I've shared before 5 ways to study and understand the Bible. To read the details of each each step, click HERE.
1. Read the information before the book.
2. Utilize YouVersion.
3. Read the commentary.
4. Cross reference.
5. Journal.

But today I wanted to share with you how to get the absolute most out of reading your Bible. It's simple really.


How to get the most out of Bible reading. #Bible #Biblestudy #w2wwordfilledwednesday

Pray before you open your Bible. Ask God make your heart tender and ready to accept what He wants you to learn. Ask God to help you see, really see what the Word says. Ask Him to help you understand what you are reading and to know how you need to apply it to your life.

Then pray again after you read your Bible. Thank God for His Words. Thank Him for speaking to you in this way. Ask Him to help you meditate on what you read throughout the day as it comes to mind. Ask Him again to help you know how to apply it to your life.

Prayer is the key to really getting something out of reading the Bible.

Do you make a point to pray before and after you read the Word? If not, will you start? Share your own experiences in the comments.

  1. It doesn't have to be complicated does it, Jennifer? Just talk to Him before and after reading His word to us. I also enjoy praying the scriptures, reminding God of His promises and accepting His truths into my life. Have a blessed week!
