Have you ever felt like the Bible is a bit confusing? You want to grow in your relationship with the Lord and you know reading the Bible is part of it. However, every time you set out to read you feel you are in over your head. You don’t know where to begin, you can’t make sense of what you read and instead of the Bible changing your life for the better you find yourself bewildered and overwhelmed.
You even try reading books about the Bible, but they just leave you feeling more confused and frustrated, because they are too technical, they use theological language you can’t understand, or they just don’t seem relevant enough for your everyday life. When your frustration gets high enough you quickly return to a verse you are familiar with, or you just close the Bible altogether, say a quick prayer, and walk away. You may try again the next day but more often than not your Bible stays closed.
If you can relate to this, you are not alone. One of the reasons people give for not reading the Bible is they feel like they can’t understand it. You may be in this camp and if you are we’ve got good news. We know exactly how you feel, and we want to help change that. That’s why we created Bible Study Basics.
The Bible Study Basics course is designed to give you a solid foundation of how to study the Bible. Can you envision how it would feel to be able to read the Bible, understand what it says and learn how to apply it to your life? What if you were able to do this without having to become a Bible scholar or spend four years in Bible college or seminary?
Imagine the joy of growing in your relationship with God because of the time you spend with him in your personal study of the Bible. No more waiting for Sunday morning or the Wednesday night Bible study to get the revelation from the pastor. You will discover how to find those truths for yourself in your own personal time of study.
If you want to read your Bible and be able to discover truth in the scriptures that you can apply to your life. You are the person Bible Study Basics was created for.
