I spend about an hour a day on the Scriptures. I choose 8 Chapters of the Bible quite at random. Some of them I like to repeat because they are so important to me. Like John 15, Hebrews 10, 2 Thess 2. And so on. I think it is a good thing to try to learn as many Chapters as you can of the Bible. Make an objective depending on your age, to learn a number of the Bible Chapters. Then you can bless many people.

I study when God says to study. I tried one day to study in my theology book, couldn't get anything in studying. So, I put the book down went and layed down ask God, "don't you want me to study theology"? He said, "I want you to spend sometime with me". Couple days later I opened the book again and I had a great time studying. The moral in this is study when you feel like it is the right time. Everything is the leading of the Holy Spirit. Then you can learn something.

I don't study as much as I should. but before I read I ask God to open my mind up and let me have the ear to hear what his word is saying.

I agree Catherine...we should seek God more and pray for guidance. Bible study is great but we must move on and be ministers of God and doing the works of God.

I would say, put your bibles down for a week and seek the Holy Spirit in prayer so He can teach you and lead you. We need to be led by the Spirit to know anything. To just memorize bible verses is not what we are to do.

Sanctify them in thy word is truth(John 17:17)How can you know objective truth but by God's Word? There is no other open revelation..(2 Pet.1:3) The Bible has been given to all. 1 plus 1 = 2. Period. Gal.1:6-9 if you have any other message than Paul and the apostles preached the same message applies!

God wants His people to put down the Bible and TALK to Him. PRONTO!
---catherine on 3/28/07

God also wants His people to spend more time with Him in talking to Him. And listening to Him. So many people are studying and are using the scriptures to through at the Saints. I found this to be true. Somewhere in the Bible what I preach it's in there. But yet people seem to know more than I do. In one word-- BUNK.
---catherine on 3/28/07

I study the Bible about an hour everyday. I write down the verses that I want to meditate upon and research them. I bring them to prayer to seek more understanding and/or praise the Lord in them. Before I study, I ask the Lord to reveal new truth - what He would have me to learn and apply.

Bible study has been a part of my life since being old enough to read. I read the Bible often, and kept a NT and Psalms in my purse or backpack. I attend Church weekly, which is a form of Bible Study, the OT reading and the Gospel reading are designed to complement each other. The Homily takes them and makes them relevant for today.

I have read the Early Church Fathers to complement my scripture studies and I enjoy some of the online Bible Studies with Dr. Scott Hahn.

I am always open to revelation from God, even when different from my current beliefs. I have been corrected more than once. But, I only listen to God, not to men who know less of the scriptures than I do.
---lorra8574 on 3/28/07

don't ask people how much time YOU should spend with God it is not correct for sure. it all depends how much you are hungry...
and always be open for God's revelation no matter what other told you but examine at the same time if it is really from God himself or maybe from you because you would like it to be that way..
---Kasia on 3/28/07

My current beliefs are what is in the Word of God. Jesus said: "Thy word is truth." If it is a revelation from the Word of God, then yes, I am open. Jesus also said, "When HE, the Spirit of Truth comes, HE shall lead you and guide you into ALL truth." To those that are open to truth, the Holy Spirit will open their eyes to see deeper truths in God's word. My study practice is consistent, detailed, exhaustive and spend hours upon hours studying.

Well tofurabby I can't gaurente we'll always agree, but we always agree on his Lordship, and ever presant coming. Amen!
---Pharisee on 6/22/06

Debbie,I have scripture that I know 100s of favorite passages that have applied to my life ciorcumstances so many times that their spiritual solutions have become part of my being.When you know who God is,Who his son is,Why he died for you,And where your going. Study disappears and is replaced by heart filled mind blowing passages.I apply scripture to daily situations thats the best study for me.

#2 It is good to seek God and His revelations on your own. Man does not always hae the right answers, but God always does. When you possess the word of God in your heart, you possess Jesus and He possesses you! As time grows closer to the return of Jesus, we need of all the wisdom of the Word that we can consume.

#1 Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

The Word of God is a never ending treasure hunt. It is alive and always exactly what you need at any particular time.
---Debbie on 6/22/06

Amen Pharisee! I used to just follow along with whatever the pastors would say (before I was really saved), but now reject anything if I cannot find validity for it in the Word. I have changed my views on many things, such as: once saved always saved, suicide being guaranteed damnation, divorce, etc.
---tofurabby on 6/22/06

I carry a little New Testament Bible in my back pocket to read when not busy, anywhere, anytime. I listen to audio versions of the Bible while driving. I read 3-4 chapters to my children every night. I love studying it and find something new almost everytime. I have definately changed some beliefs thanks to my new found dedication to reading the scriptures. I used to go by doctrine I learned from past churches I went to, but upon my own study, I have found things arent quite like they said.
---tofurabby on 6/22/06

I'm guessing, because each day is different, at least an hour a day at home. I give sermons constantly, just because it's what I do, and always have willing hearts to listen. Thank God! I have been known to preach to cats and dogs too.

At work I am blessed with alot of down time and probably spend at least 25-30 hours of worktime in the word preparing studies and sermons.

I reject anything that comes by revelation by myself or another that doesn't match the revealed word of God.
