How to Dig Deeper during Bible Study

How to Dig Deeper during Bible Study

Recently my Mom asked me a question that caught me off guard. Who is God to you?

I was stomped. As much as I read the bible, reflect on what I've read, and share my spiritual journey. I didn't have an answer.

Quite honestly, I partly didn't understand the question. So I asked her, what do you mean?

She said, who is God to you? I replied, huh. She said I'll give you a hint, read John 1:1-2. I told her I had already read it.

She told me to read it again. So I read it again. But the answer seemed to simple.

God is the word.

I thought that was to easy to be the answer. So I read it again and again. Not learning anything new from rereading the bible verse. I decided to read it in different translations.

I read about 5 different versions of the same passage using my Bible app. When I got to the Voice translation, I found something that stopped me in my steps.

The Greek word Logos which is often translated in English to word.

Logos, (Greek: “word,” “reason,” or “plan”) plural logoi, in Greek philosophy and theology, the divine reason implicit in the cosmos, ordering it and giving it form and meaning.

This one Greek word transformed the way I answered my Mom's simple question. My answer evolved in a way I honestly had not imagined.

Who is God to you?

  • God is the living word.
  • Christ is the flesh (human) version of the word.
  • The Holy Spirit is the guide Christ left with us before ascending back to heaven.
  • God word is the truth.
  • Jesus was with God when he created the word.
  • Jesus was sent to speak to the world by God.
  • Us being able to hear Jesus changed everything.
  • As a result of Jesus we are now able to hear and speak directly to God.
  • Christ, God, and the Holy Spirit are one

My mother's question forced me to think deeply.

Looking at different translations helped me to better understand several principles I have read over the years during my bible study. One Greek word helped me to understand a fundamental bible lesson.

7 Ways to Dig Deeper during Bible Study

  1. Read it twice.
  2. Read it in at least one other translations .
  3. Research the place where it happen.
  4. Research the word definition in it's original language (Greek). Chose words that are unfamiliar or powerful - the word could change the meaning of the passage.
  5. Ask questions.
  6. Write your thoughts down.
  7. Have a conversation with someone you trust. Read the passage together ans discuss your thoughts.

I have been reading Exodus for a while now -let's just say it's taking me longer than I'd like to admit. I'm still struggling to balance it all.

Anyways while reading Exodus I came across a verse that confused me. Honestly it seemed rather out of place. I found myself rereading the verse over and over out of fear that I missed something. There was simply no lead up to it.

At a lodging place on the way the Lord met him and sought to put him to death.Then Zipporah took a flint and cut off her son's foreskin and touched Moses' feet with it and said, “Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me!”So he let him alone. It was then that she said, “A bridegroom of blood,” because of the circumcision. - Exodus 4:24-26 ESV

I was lost. What had made God so angry so fast. Well after reading it in several different versions I realized what angered God.

Moses had failed to fulfill his end of his covenant with God. Although God wanted to use Moses to save the people of Israel. He wasn't going to do so without the covenant being met.

Zipporah being a Godly wife she recognized that she could intervene and save her husband life. Because she knew the word. Zipporah stepped out on faith and circumcised her son to save Moses life.

How to be a Godly Wife what I've learned from Zipporah 

  • As a wife, you have the power to save your husbands life.
  • You maybe physically smaller than your husband. Spiritual strength and power is just as important - if not more important than physical strength.
  • Let God's word be the instruction manual for your lives.
  • Don't be afraid to step out on faith on your husbands' behalf. Your prayers and spiritual action go a long way with God.

Never underestimate your value as his wife. You are his helpmate, he needs you.

Stand on God's word and don't be afraid to step up like Zipporah.

God's Grace | Morning Coffee ☕ with Chellbee

Bible Study | Discover the scripture truth about God's grace. This scripture bible study is perfect for women and moms who struggle to believe they are worthy.  Bible study plans | bible study reading plans | bible journaling tips | soap notebook #bible #biblestudy

Do you ever think I'm just not worthy? Why would God love me? How can He forgive me? When I've done nothing to show Him I deserve His forgiveness and love.

I can recall feeling like this quite often in the past. But once I learned what God's grace truly means the feelings of unworthiness finally stopped.

The truth about grace is we aren't being saved by God because of our heroic or faithful actions.

We were saved simply because of God's grace.
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. - Ephesians 2:8-9 ESV

I know you wanted to think God saved you because you pray, are saved, attend church, or memorize scriptures. But the truth about God's grace is in the word. There is nothing you have accomplished that makes you worthy of God's grace.

It is by your faith and faith alone that God grants you grace. We would be wandering souls without His grace. Being moved by our desires. Enslaved by the desires of our flesh.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us,even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved—For by grace you have been saved through faith. - Ephesians 2:4-5 ESV

Today I just want to encourage you during those moments when you're feeling stressed or unworthy. Remember that by having faith that God's word is the truth and the salvation bestowed by Christ. You already have the gift of God's grace.
