Bible Study – Like Getting Water from a Well

How to Study the Bible

The individual’s obligation is to learn of Christ (Matthew 11:28-30). There is no limitation as to how much scripture you may learn. In fact, the danger is in not learning enough of God’s Word (Matthew 4:4). Our study of God’s Word must be a daily task (2 Corinthians 4:16). You can never exhaust the Word of God.

As a child, I often studied the Bible with my grandmother Davis. When we finished, she would let me go to her well and draw a fresh bucket of water. She would tell me, “Bible study is a lot like getting water from my well. Every time you let the bucket down you get water; but it is a bucket of water you never had before.” She was right!

    Through the kindness of publisher Andy Sochor, owner of Gospel Armory, it is a joy to publish this six-lesson material entitled HOW TO STUDY THE BIBLE. As with the last work, Andy is the owner and I’m simply the author: please order the books from Gospel Armory.
    HOW TO STUDY THE BIBLE was originally a wintertime bible study. Since that time, no less than four other times have we used this series of lessons in a class format; ad once in a Sunday night preaching environment. The material also works well with one-on-one studies.
    It does not endeavor to formulate “new methods of study” but instead, formulate habits of study that WORK!. For eight years, I taught the Study Skills and Strategies classes for seventh and eight graders in a local middle school. Again we did not endeavor to form some method of study; but rather incorporate workable habits of study that resulted in retention of the material. This is what this book does: encourage daily habits of study that will encourage increasing diligence in learning and obeying the word of God!
