How to Read the Bible

The Bible is the book that has changed millions of lives over the last few thousand years. It is a life changing book. This “book” has changed my life. Yet, the Bible can be challenging to read.

John Wesley, the 18th century founder of the Methodist Movement, called “searching the scriptures” (reading and studying the scriptures) a “means of grace.” He was saying that the scriptures are a means we can experience God’s grace.

In this video, I share a few thoughts on how to read the Bible. I pray the transformative words of the Holy Spirit speak to you as you read and study this incredible library of books we call the Bible.

I would also love to hear any other “tips” you may have to help others read and learn from and hear the Holy Spirit through the pages of scripture.
