This sets the tone for a modest and open-minded approach to studying. It is also an excellent to remind yourself to remember that God will be with you on this journey and will be there to assist you with any confusion or questions.
Select a topic that is of interest to you.
Don’t think that you have to start at the beginning! Insisting on a subject or subject that interests you is one of the best methods to increase the enjoyment of your Bible study more exciting. For example, if you want to understand more about Jesus take a look at the New Testament gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Choose a single 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.
