“Personal” Bible Study

We were in Mark 14 this week.  Second week for that chapter.  One of the men listed all of the people in the chapter and how they related to Jesus.  His chart is below.
“Personal” Bible Study
The next thing he did was an excellent example of application.  He when through each of those attitudes and asked the question is he relating to Christ in that way.

It was hard for him.  It brought up some issues that he is praying through.  It was hard.  It was very personal.
We all need to follow his example.  We are not to do Bible study to make us smarter.  No, it is to change our life and give us a closer relationship with our Lord.

My friend did that this morning.  He is a gifted teacher of the Word.  He dives deep into the text with access to the original languages.  Yet one of the men in the study remarked that in all the years he has known him this was his best study.

Why?  It was personal.
