Chuck Lawless, a professor at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary suggests:

  • Ask God to teach you something from His Word. God will simply teach you over and over again what the book is about while also challenging and convicting you.
  • Read slowly enough to grasp what you’ve read; absorb the reading.
  • Don’t skim or speed-read, especially as you read the book for the 5th or 6th time. The goal is to read thoroughly each time.
  • If you want to use a study Bible to understand the text better, feel free to do that—but focus on the Scriptures more than the notes.
  • Thank God for any insight you gain. Let your Bible reading be dialogue as you listen to God and respond to Him in gratitude, repentance, and trust.

Looking forward to diving into God’s Word together!
