Have you ever sat in a Bible or book study and thought, “I can’t believe I haven’t noticed this before?”
Has scripture you’ve read in the past now come alive in a whole new way?
As you read scripture and learn more about it’s meaning, do you want to share this new found knowledge with someone else?
Here is your opportunity to Love a Bible alongside your Bible or book study and share your eye opening experience with others!
5 Tips for Loving a Bible at Bible Study
1 – Did you know that you can take your Bible Study workbook an get it spiral bound? Just take it to your local office supply store, they cut the edge and add a coil. It only cost a few dollars and it makes it so much easier to take notes!
2 – Take LOTS of notes. Anytime you hear scripture, jot it down or look it up in your Loved Bible. You can highlight it right then! You can also add notes in the margin.
3 – Most of your notes won’t fit in your Loved Bible, so use your workbook or journal to take notes. Star notes and quotes that really stuck out to you. Don’t worry about your handwriting or scribbles! My note taking is crazy!!! I like to jot down the powerful quotes/notes on a Post-It note pad and it helps me separate the ideas.
4 – I usually don’t do my Loved Bible entries during Bible Study, unless it’s simply highlighting the scripture and quickly capturing the point made by the teacher. Most of the time I find it helpful for me to digest what I learned if I simply take 15 minutes after the study, and before I start the next week, to add any key takeaways from the lesson to my Bible.
5 – Usually Bible Studies have homework each night. While I do my homework, I try to focus on one key lesson, idea, or prayer and add it to my Loved Bible. I really like this because it makes me think about one thing I learned during my time of study and it becomes easier for me to share it with others. Another general tip while reading or studying is to ask yourself, “What is one thing I learned on this page?” And, add it in the bottom right hand corner. I like doing this when I’m reading a non-fiction study type book as well.
Bonus Tip – Keep your Loved Bible with your workbook. You’ll love seeing at the end of a 7-8 week Bible Study all of your key takeaways in one Bible dedicated to just that study!!
