As we begin another year of Bible reading, Pastor John takes us back to the basics: feed your motivation, grow in skill, and pray for illumination.
Happy New Year! We are again talking about Bible reading in 2019. Here’s today’s question. “Hello, Pastor John, I am Kennedy from Uganda. I have been listening to your sermons, and I thank God for using you to impact our lives through the word that you preach. My question: Whenever I am reading the Bible, I find it hard to understand what the author intended for me to understand when he wrote it. Currently, I am doing my devotions in the book of Genesis, but I so often find myself totally blank after I’ve read a text. What’s the first basic skill in Bible reading to find meaning for myself?”
