  2. Bible Study Tip 2: Apply It!
    Think about ways you can use the Bible reading in your life. As you do your Bible study, look for:
    An example to admire or avoid
    • A command to obey
    • A sin to confess
    • A promise to embrace

    Write, highlight, and underline those passages and words that stand out during your Bible readings. It helps you get engaged with the Scripture, and research shows the actual act of physically writing something down helps to register the text. Surprise Bible study tip: Crayons can be your Bible’s best friend. They don’t bleed through the pages. They’re cheap. And you can use different colors for a color-coding system to help you emphasize certain ideas or words over others.

9 Thoughts on “5 Tips to Getting More Out Of Your Bible Study

  1. I really appreciate all that you had to say here. These tips will help me apply what I learn, like you said it point two. Listening sometimes and reading other times will help change things up a bit. Making a note to help myself remember and make the lessons I learn stick with me is a great idea. Thank you so much for the great post.

  2. When it comes to my Bible studies, I have to have a plan with my study or else it often doesn’t happen. I always have a purpose as I study and begin with a prayer. I have found a study journal to be helpful so I can write down what I learned and then I go out and share i with others.

    • Jason, I’m so glad you share what you glean from your own study! This is an incredibly helpful and loving way to share God with others. 🙂 God bless you!

  3. I try to read my Bible every day, however, I want to make sure that I’m doing this effectively. That being said, you suggest to write in your Bible because this will help you to be more engaged, and I agree! Additionally, I think that writing thoughts and highlighting scriptures will not only help me to engage more and understand what I’m reading more, but it will help me to be able to go back and remember what I was thinking or feeling, which makes the scripture study a lot more solidified. Thank you for your insight!

    I underline in red or blue with a fine point pen that does not bleed. I also use a ruler to keep it neat. I only use yellow colored dry high-liters. I get distracted by other colors and I won’t own a high-liter in any other color. Call me weird, but it’s the truth.

  5. I’m trying to get into the habit of marking my bible, however i dont want to go over board with it so how can i minimize my marking my bible, also can you recommend some material on bible marking.
