The Bible tells us God’s Word is living and active (Hebrews 4:12).

It gives us wisdom, hope, peace, comfort and so much more.

The reason it can do so is because this Word is from God himself (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

In these difficult days filled with uncertainty and fear we want to help you and the church to remain rooted in God’s Word.

Scripture. Observe. Apply. Pray.

SCRIPTURE : pick a passage – maybe from the Bible 2020 App reading or our Daily Bible Reading Guide. Write it out and highlight anything that stands out to you initially

OBSERVE : to go deeper ask yourself; what does the passage say about God? About us? What’s happening? Who’s involved? Where is it taking place? And anything else you notice.

APPLY : we don’t just read God’s Word to learn, but also to live. Write down one personal and/or one practical way you could practise something you have observed from the passage in your everyday life.

PRAY : lastly pray. Take a moment to write a prayer, giving thanks to God for his Word and what he has revealed to you. Ask for his help to live it out in your life.

Why not give it a go today?

We’ll be posting examples on our social media in the coming days and weeks to encourage you and many others to keep engaging with the Bible.
