COME ON OUT AND ENJOY SOME LIVELY DISCUSSIONS AS WE ALL GROW IN OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST AND WITH EACH OTHER.
WANT TO LEARN ON YOUR OWN?
HERE IS AN IDEA TO HELP YOU GROW SPIRITUALLY.
As you read and study scripture, one of the ways to get more out of it, to dig deeper is using the H.E.A.R. method of study.
H. stands for Highlight. highlight what pops out at you, who is talking, who are they talking to, what are they talking about, the good and the bad. the consequences and the blessings. I like to copy the scripture then use different colored pencils to mark the important points.
E. stands for explaining, rewrite it in your own words as if you had to tell others the same message. remember that each of us will interpret it differently and use it differently also.
A. stands for Apply. What are you being called to do differently, or what are you being called to make a stand for or against. We are all being called to do the work of the Lord.
R. stands for Respond. Write a prayer that responds to what you have highlighted as being called to do, or that you may walk in the light of what has been revealed to you and not have to pay the consequences.
Take Ephesians 5:1-22, read it then break it down into verses 1-2. then 3-6, 7-11, 12-16, 17-21. Then try the HEAR system and see what new insights you gain. You will be surprised at what new insights you gain if you come back to the same text a month or so later also.
Have fun because God will open your eyes to a new revelation each time you read his word.
Blessings and safety as we travel through this storm together.
