How Do I Study the Bible?

Yesterday at CrossWay Church we wrapped up a three-week series called TXT with a message about how to study the Bible.

The very term “Bible study” can be intimidating, but it’s actually a process we learn very early in life.  Carolyn’s kindergarten students use a similar method whenever they begin a new unit in their curriculum.  It’s essentially three parts:

(1) Read the Bible passage and ask: What does it say?

(2) Read the Bible passage again and ask: What does it mean?

(3) Read the Bible passage a third time and ask: What should I do in response?

A good dose of prayer woven throughout is especially helpful.

Major bummer–the podcast was lost!  Not sure what happened, but it cuts off around the time the offering was taken.
