So I have been having a bit of an emotional week. Considering I'm not THAT emotional of a person, my emotions have me a bit exhausted. Unfortunately, I can't escape pain and instead of naively thinking I can pray the pain away, I need to embrace that pain happens and that I'll need strength and peace to endure.
I earnestly believe that we all genuinely have the heart to want to study and get into the Word but when we crack open the Bible, we get lost. From past experience, when I tried to read the bible on my own, in a version I didn't understand, without a plan and try to understand, it never worked. Here's part two of Understanding the Bible.
To date, my most consistently asked question has been: where in the world do I start reading in this Bible? People want to read, but don't know where to start. Before I answer the question of where to, I think it's important to start with how to understand the Bible first. This is part one.
