I’m [name], and I’ve been studying the Bible for as long as I can remember. My parents are both pastors, so it was always important in our house to know the Word of God—and then to apply it to our lives. It was only after I grew up and started working with kids at church that I realized how many people don’t know what the Bible says or how to apply it to their lives. That’s why I started this blog: so that everyone who wants to learn more about God’s Word can feel welcome in taking part in this amazing journey of discovery!
I’m so glad you’re here. I hope you’re ready for a Bible study that will challenge and encourage you, because that’s what this blog is all about.
Hey there! We’re so glad you’re here. We’re excited to take this journey with you and learn more about what God has in store for us all.
We know it can be hard to find time to study the Bible, especially if you have a busy schedule. That’s why we’ve created a community where we can start each day focused on God’s Word.
Here, we’ll be sharing insights from our studies, as well as prayer requests and encouragement. If you have any questions or comments, we’d love to hear them—just leave us a comment below!
Interactive Bible Study For Adults
If you haven’t been to church in a while, or if you’re just getting started with your Christian faith, it can be overwhelming to pick up a Bible. Where do you start? How much time should you spend reading the Bible? What should you read and how? The answer is simple: Start with whatever passage interests you most! Even if it’s only a few verses at first, read those verses slowly and carefully. Then write down what you think God is saying to you through this text. If something doesn’t make sense to you or makes your head hurt (or both!), talk about it with someone else who knows more about the Bible than you do.
Begin with a prayerful heart.
Prayer is a vital part of Bible study. We are no different from the people in Bible times—we need God’s guidance, strength and wisdom to understand His word. Before you begin your study, it’s important that you pray for these things:
- Guidance – as we read the Bible, God will show us what He wants us to see. Pray that He will give you eyes to see and ears to hear His message in the passage(s).
- Strength – sometimes there will be difficult passages or words in our studies; pray that God will give you strength so that those things do not cause offense or hinder your learning process.
- Wisdom – ask God to help you understand what He is trying to tell us through His word during this time of study.
Read the text slowly and carefully.
- Read the text carefully and slowly.
- Read the text aloud, out loud if possible, to yourself or someone else who is willing to listen.
- Read the text silently, in your head or out loud to no one except God, who is always listening even if you don’t think He is paying attention at all times (and He really is).
- Ask yourself questions about what you have just read: “What does this mean?” “How does this apply to me?” “How does this apply to other people?” “What does it say about our world?”
Free Bible Study Lessons With Questions And Answers
Study the text by asking questions of the scripture.
Asking questions of the text is one way that we learn and grow in our faith. Questions help us to think about what we are reading, understand it better so that we can apply it to our lives, and share it with others.
In your adult Bible study group, you may want to consider the following questions:
Write down what you think God is saying to you through this text.
- Write down what you think God is saying to you through this text.
- Pray for those mentioned in this book and the problems they face.
- Think about the way God’s message applies to your life today.
Discuss your thoughts and ideas with someone else.
The best way to understand the Bible is by discussing it with someone else. Discussing your thoughts and ideas with someone else helps you to understand the text better, as well as see its relevance for today’s world.
Remember, reading and studying the Bible can be a great adventure for adults — both beginners and more experienced students of God’s Word!
You may safely and confidently navigate all the mazes of this world with God’s Word in your hands and mind. The true and narrow path is so boldly outlined that even a runner can read it. A traveler, even a fool, can safely navigate it (Isaiah 35:8) because it is clearly marked with God’s laws, even though the rest of the world can’t see them. The Spirit of Truth, who is unseen, guides us and reassures us when we are unsure of what to do, saying “This is the way, walk ye in it” (Isaiah 30:21). As a result, you can continue on your journey to the city of God with peace of mind as you rely on the Bible as “a lamp to your feet, and a light unto your path” (Psalm 119:105), a route that no one knows save He who leads you.
The path brightens as you travel over mountains and through valleys, eventually leading to the ideal day. That’s what the wise say (Proverbs 4:18). If we pay attention and steer our rickety schooner by God’s Word, we will reach the promised land of eternal peace and rest without hitting any snags along the way. But if we are not careful and arrogant and rely on our own conceits, we will sink our faith. A young lieutenant in the English navy recently reported a previously unknown and potentially hazardous rock in the Mediterranean to the admiralty. The directive to include it on all charts was sent via telegraph to every station.
The first vessel to pass over the spot was captained by an elderly man who, upon seeing the fresh warning on his map, was curious as to who had first reported the rock. When told this, he said, “There is no such rock there.” Twenty years of sailing this sea has left me without evidence of such a rock. Then, full of self-importance, he ordered his sailing-master to take the ship straight over the target. The brave ship sailed straight through the perilous area. The ship crashed with terrible force, taking the lives of everyone aboard. Many a Christian has gone down in flames due to arrogance or ignoring his infallible compass. We pray that the Holy Spirit would prompt us to carefully examine the course laid out for us by God.
Bible study can be a great adventure for adults — both beginners and more experienced students of God’s Word! Bible study can be done by anyone, regardless of their experience, age, or education. The important thing is to learn how to study the Bible in an effective way.
