As you read your Bible daily be sure to have an open notebook with you to write down the verses that speak to you and the lessons God has for you. As well, write down any comments or questions you may have. God wants you to be a student of His Word, 2 Timothy 2:15.
Follow these four simple steps to properly understand the Bible:
1. Find who is giving the message
2. Find who is receiving the message
3. Find what the message is
