Hey guys!! So i just wanted to do a quick post because I do not have a lot of time but wanted to still put something up on the blog for you guys. So i thought that maybe I would talk about how to approach and eneter the word, or the bible. With all the talking about God and the bible that I do, i though it might be a good idea to quickly talk about some good books to read when first getting into the bible and how to approach it. So here we go!!
Firstly, just to suggest some good books to start reading the bible in: there are tons. Some short but really good ones that will challenge, teach you, and encourage you are James, Hebrews & John. I have read all of these and they are all really awesome and as I said teach you alot about faith and love. I know that the bible can be hard to understand and get into at times but some tips to help with that or just by praying before you start reading it. Asking god to just lead and guide you through it and help you to understand.
Another few tips I would have are just to approach it with an open mind and a willingness to give it a shot. At first it might be hard, but once you start it gets easier and the more you read it the more you will want to read it. Be open to what it might show or teach you and what God could teach you through it.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions and want to understand it better. If you don’t understand what a word means, look it up like you would any other book. After all, the bible is one big book. If you wanna no more about the towns and cities talked about in the bible, look those up to.
I promise you, yo won’t regret going into the word. I know personally, the bible has taught be so much and by extention, allowed me to take new persoectives on certain situations or circumstances in my life. It has offered me a bucket full kr comfort and healing in the time i have needed it and i hope, pray and know you can get thise things from reading it as well. So, why not give it a shot?? What do you have to lose?
