The Word

"... train yourself to be godly.   For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. "  1 Timothy 4:7-8

Are you paying attention to your spiritual growth?  Attending to your relationship with God is the most important thing you can do!

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.

  The P3R Approach to Reading the Bible      

God wrote the Bible with you in mind. He wants you to understand it! Try these simple steps to help understand any passage in the Bible:

1. Pray
Prayer is always a wonderful way to begin reading! Ask God to give you the understanding and wisdom to see wonderful things in His Word. (Psalm 119:18)

2. Read
You can begin anywhere! There’s no right or wrong way to do it! You can read the Bible straight through or skip around, read a few verses a day or read entire chapters.

Some passages are easier to understand than others. That’s ok. If you’re puzzled by what you read, write down your questions. Ask someone who is familiar with the Bible to answer them or send an e-mail to our Pastor Randall. I’d love to wrestle with the text with you!

3. Reflect
Consider carefully what you read. Ask questions like:
    •  What does this section teach me about God?
    •  What does this section teach me about people or myself?
    •  How does God want me to respond to what He's teaching me?

4. Respond
Reading the Bible is an interactive experience. God speaks to us…and we respond. (James 1:22) You might feel led to pray, to give thanks, to acknowledge you’ve done something wrong, or be moved to act in some way. When you read and respond to God’s Word, your life will be filled with purpose like you’ve never known before.
