Start your journey by saying a prayer.

Take a moment to pray to God prior to reading. This is a wonderful chance to communicate to God your desire to learn the more you can about God’s word. While reading, you should make a prayer for insight and understanding as well as direction on how to apply the lessons to your life.

It is also a helpful reminder of the fact that God will be with you on this journey and is waiting to assist you with any questions or confusion.

Select a topic of interest

Do not assume that you need to begin from the beginning! Jumping immediately into a subject or subject that interests you is among the best ways to create Bible study more enjoyable. For instance, if you want to understand more about Jesus, start reading Jesus’s gospel through the New Testament gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Select a particular topic, like forgiveness or trials, to focus on instead and this will allow you to relate to the material more deeply and make your study more relevant.

Be sure to make it relevant

Pick a subject that you are passionate about. This is a fantastic approach to enhance the relevancy and intimacy of the Bible. Look up verses on that topic and then carefully read them. In order to assist you, ChurchofJesusChrist.org also provides resources and suggested passages for typical topics.

Discover a Character

Explore any information you can locate concerning the person you’ve picked from the Bible. You’ll gain more knowledge of the verses’ context as well as of the larger context of the Bible if you do this. Consider how they are related to each other and how they came to be acquainted with Jesus as well as the things you share with them and what you could be able to learn from them.
