In the next four days, I will share a new section of our supplements to God’s Plan for His Church. We think this is so valuable for any student of the Scriptures that we are sharing it with you.
1 – OBSERVATION – “LOOK AT IT” - What does it say?
· Discover what the Bible says. (Observation Example: Read Acts 8:30)
· Read John 14:26 and pray the Holy Spirit will help you see it.
Observation is the basic key to understanding God’s Word; it is fixing your heart, mind and attention on a passage of Scripture or a verse and the context around that verse. Observation is spending time in looking for what is God saying, what is happening in this passage and what is God’s intended message for the hearers. It will be helpful to read the passage several times. Then in your own words write down your observations.
(Example) Read and observe 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (Also read and observe verses 10-17 to understand the context of verses 16 & 17). Write down some key observations of what Paul is saying about the Scripture.
In Paul’s final letter, he tells Timothy to follow his teaching and life because his teaching and life is based on Scripture which is breathed out by God. Thus, Paul says that all Scripture is profitable for teaching, reproof, correction and training in righteousness. Paul wants Timothy to know that Scripture is able to equip a man of God completely.
