The way we want to study the Bible is precept upon precept. We learn a little at a time and over time it becomes layers of meaning. The Bible is too big a book to get in a single read.
We meet Jesus through a simple prayer of repentance and commitment. It takes a moment. But getting to know Him and living our lives for Him takes a lifetime. So we spend time studying His Word.
“I gave an account of my ways and you answered me; teach me your decrees. Cause me to understand the way of your precepts, that I may meditate on your wonderful deeds.” Psalm 119:26-27
What a good prayer to pray as we open the Bible “...teach me your decrees. Cause me to understand the way of your precepts.”
He wants us to know Him. He wants us to understand how He works and who He is. But it is up to us to spend the time learning the Book He has given us. Take it a little at a time, praying over it, and learning.
You have given us Your incredible Word and allowed us to get to know You through it. Help us to take the time to study and obey.
