Studying the Word; Need Inspiration? {+Video}

This week, we are studying about the Word.  Why should I read it?  What should it mean to me?  What can I gain from it?

A couple of years ago, we found a wonderful video series by Dr. Howard Hendricks, the first being "Why Study the Bible?"

In this six minute video, Dr. Hendricks discusses three reasons for Bible study:
  1. Bible study is essential for spiritual growth (1 Peter 2:2)
  2. Bible study is essential for spiritual maturity (Hebrews 5:11-14)
  3. Bible study is essential for spiritual effectiveness (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
If you are joining me for this week's Bible study, you may find this brief video inspiring.  You may also view the rest of the series here.

Looking for more?  I've also been inspired by Dr. Hendrick's book, Living By the Book: The Art and Science of Reading the Bible.

How have you been doing this week?  Any thoughts to share?

For those of you who are not joining in on our study, what you are reading in your Bible right now?  I'd love to hear about it.

  1. Hi Jaime, I am following you back from New Friend Friday, your blog layout is so pretty! And I cannot wait to try that pretzel bread recipe!

    Have a wonderful weekend, and I look forward to reading more of your blogs!

  2. I love reading the Word! I'm presently reading through the Psalms - 5 a day and just finished 121-125. :D I can't wait to see what God has for me! Thank you for sharing!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Hi Tiffany! Nice to meet you... so glad you stopped by :o)

    Sherry, Psalms 5 a day sounds like a great idea! I was thinking of doing something similar next month! I'd love to know what you think when you're done.


I truly enjoy reading your comments. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts; you've all helped to create a wonderful little community here at Like a Bubbling Brook.

Please remember the old adage "if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all." While I love to hear from you, comments encouraging division and condemnation will not be published - rather, they will be promptly deleted.

I'm looking forward to reading what you have to say! I wish we could chat over coffee or tea one day ~
