Need help understanding Bible Verses?

An important part of living the life of a true Christian is reading the Scriptures. The Scriptures itself is divided into two main sections, the two biggest portions: the Old Testament, which discusses the Lord’s prophets and their wisdom and teachings before the birth of the Son of God, Jesus Christ, and this portion of the Scriptures was intended for the Jews; and the New Testament, which discusses the life, Gospels and teachings, and death of the Son of God on the cross, Jesus Christ.

When you find a corner to sit down and read the Bible verses about love, you need to put into your head the various methods employed in order to get the most out of the text from the Scriptures. It is in your best interest to take note of the following methods:

1.   Read the Scriptures within a given time frame

There are times when the most effective way to motivate yourself to read the Scriptures all the way from start to end is to give yourself a schedule, some sort of timeframe, when you intend to finish it and get it done.

Some prefer to finish the Scriptures within a year. Others prefer to take it slow and absorb the teachings and do it within a span of three years. Create a schedule for you to finish the Scriptures at your own comfortable pace.

2. Read the Scriptures in chronological order

The Scriptures, even though it is no doubt the Word of the Lord, was written by many different people during many different times in history. If anything, it was not compiled in a strictly chronological order.

Some individuals, like a few we know,  like to read the events in the Scriptures in the order that they took place in history.

You should search online for guides on how to read the Scriptures in chronological order if that is what you like.

3. Read the love Bible verses all the way from beginning to end (from Genesis to the Revelation)

One of the most common and still the most viable way to understand the Scriptures is to read it all the way from start to finish—from Genesis all the way to Revelation.

But it would be best to not read it all in one sitting because it could cause brain overload or mental exhaustion! A good rule of thumb is to tackle down around four to six chapters a day, no more no less, and then resume again the following day. By reading the Scriptures from cover to cover, you ensure that you get to read everything and hopefully miss nothing.

There are many different ways to read the Scriptures. You should be able to find one that suits your lifestyle and mood. Experiment and find out your personal reading approach. If you want Jesus to help you understand the Scriptures better, simply pray this simple prayer;

Dear Jesus,

I invite you in my life to become my personal Lord and Savior. Come in my life and take control. Help me learn more about God. Help me learn more about you and help me read and understand the Bible which is filled with Bible verses, I ask and pray. -Amen
