#2 Read and Mark the Text: Print out the passage of Scripture, double-spaced, and use to mark up the text and make notes as you read. To learn more on marking the text and questions to ask as you read, take a look at Reading Thoughtfully, Reading Purposefully, and Reading Selectively in the blog post, 10 Ways to Read the Bible linked below.

#3 Questions to Ask When Reading Any Bible Passage

As you read the Scripture passage, seek the answer the following questions from the passage and surrounding text:

  • Who is involved in the passage?
  • What is happening? Where is this taking place?
  • Is there a problem or concern being addressed?
  • Do you see any repeated words or phrases? How do they help you understand the main point of the passage?
  • What questions does the text raise? Can you uncover any of the answers to these questions from the text? (Unanswered questions are okay. Pray through them and be patient with the text and yourself as you study.)
  • What do you learn about God, Jesus Christ, or the Holy Spirit from this passage?
  • What do you learn about the gospel from this passage? What aspects of the gospel are seen in this passage?

*There is no Group Study Guide for the month of December.

READY FEET

Based on what you've read in this week's Scripture passage, is there something God is calling you to do?

How might God be calling you to prepare through giving this week?

We believe that giving for a believer is not a money issue; it is a heart issue. Knowing God as the Owner and Provider of all things, we use the resources He has provided each of us to help people and accomplish the purposes He has placed before us. Online Giving
