Reading, hearing, and studying God’s Word WILL help us grow in our faith as a Christian. It renews our mind and gives us wisdom for our daily life. Holy Spirit will help us remember God’s Word in different situations, as we memorize and meditate on it.
When we read the Word, we need to do it reverently. We must also be open to do what God indicates is important for our own walk with God and/or how it can help others.
The process for studying, meditating, memorizing and applying the Bible should include:
- Observation: What does Scripture say?
- Interpretation: What does this Scripture mean to me?
- Application: How does this Scripture apply to my life personally, or how can I help someone else with these truths from Scripture?
In Christian meditation, we focus on Jesus and His truths and principles in GOD’S WORD. To live out God’s truth, we need to understand and actively pursue OBEDIENCE to the Word of God.
