Many people express a desire to learn how to study the Bible. There are many reasons people give for not following through on their desires. The most common complaint concerning unwillingness to follow thru in Bible study is the question of relevance. Many see the Bible as antiquated or obsolete. To overcome this one must study the Bible itself… studying and learning will inculcate the truths of the Bible, which upon examination are timeless. By studying we learn the principles of God’s Word. The principles do not change.
Another common roadblock to Bible study is the perceived lack of time. Like all our other demands in our life , time is a necessary component we cannot overlook. We must evaluate our priorities and allot time accordingly. However much time you allot stick with your regimen. Your diligence will be rewarded and you may soon find what was once a chore is now a cheer.
Then there is the fact that we just don’t know how. This can be true for those who have tries unsuccessfully. The problem is one of method and approach to study. Given the correct tools this obstacle can be overcome.
