3.c. Study Continued:

4) List ‘study’ next to, you guessed it, ‘keyboard’. Without the keyboard, you could only see what your computer was programmed to show you in whatever sequence it was programmed. With the keyboard, you can delve deeper into areas that interest you and perform useful searches to answer nagging questions. It’s the same with you knowledge of God, when you regularly add study to your Word processing habits.

Note: This is a "beginning" Bible study technique. Over time, you may wish to acquire the tools for more detailed study. If you have any questions about this study or the proper tools, email us.  

d. Meditate: Ps 1:1-2 "Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked…but his delight is in the law of the Lord and on his law he _________ day and night." Rom 12:2 "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be ___________ by the renewing of your ____." Meditation is not the absence of thought, as some Eastern mystics may tell us, but the purposeful mental application of God's Word to our lives. It's mentally imagining ourselves living in accordance with the principles of God. You may have noticed we've incorporated meditation in the study technique, above. Very perceptive of you! Meditation is, to your life, like the mouse is, to the computer. It points you in the direction you want to go and moves you rapidly toward that goal. Meditation is especially helpful when you’ve just had a life situation that applies to the Scripture you’re meditating. If you make a habit of meditation, God will arrange this. 

e. Memorize: Ps 119:11 "I have ______ your word in my _____ that I might not ___ against you." Jn 15:7 "If you remain in me and my _____ remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you." Pr 7:1-3 "My son, keep my words and store up my commands within you…write them on the tablet of you heart." Memorizing Scripture is very important, but not for the sake of memorizing. We don't recommend using some "Scripture Memory" program and doing a certain number every day or week. You may have noticed we've incorporated memorization in the study technique, above. Very perceptive of you! This is how Scripture memory should work; as you find Scriptures that are especially meaningful to you in your study, take the time to memorize them. It’s easier to memorize, makes meditation automatic, and provides your own life application in memory with the applicable Scripture. This will come in handy, because God will give you opportunities to share what you’re learning. Memorization is like the printer because it prints the Word in your life and makes copies in the lives of others as He leads you to share.  

f. Do: Ja 1:22 "Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. __ what it ____." Think about your computer for a moment. How useful are all those components without the processor they plug into? Not! That’s exactly how useful it is to do any of the above without actually doing what God’s Word says. Let me make the point even more obvious.

If you aren’t going to do what God’s Word says, why study it?

The purpose of this course isn’t so you will know the Word, it’s so you will live the Word. This is the ultimate goal of this whole Discipleship School, that we learn to have our every action and thought shaped by the Word of God, living in us.  

So many are satisfied just skimming the surface of life in the Lord. You wouldn't have gotten to this point in the Life Cycle courses if you were one of them. You've already been "cut out of the herd". Start asking the Lord, "Why?" He has a wonderful plan for each of us. As you continue in regular prayer, reading and study time, He will make His plan for you clear to you. Jn 15:14-15 "You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends…"

Memory Verse: Hebrews 4:12
