How To Make The Most Benefit Of Your Bible Reading by Bendzamin(m): 6:24am On Nov 15, 2015
The bible is a priceless gift from our loving God. It contained many valuable messages and lessons that when applied in our daily lives, our lives will never remain the same. However, reading the bible, understanding it and applying what is being read may be a tedious task for some because they conclude that the bible is a mystery book which can never be understood by common men except the pastors and the likes. Therefore, below are few steps to follow in order to read the bible, enjoy it, extract the lessons therein and apply what you read in your life as well as using it to help others in your neighbourhood.
In order not to bore the reader with many information, I am going to make use of a few bible verses as an example. Before reading, pray to God to give you understanding and insight to what you wants to read, and after careful reading, ask yourself these 3 questions:
1. What does this verse(s) tell me about God?
2. How can I apply this in my life?
3. How can I use this to help others?
Now, lets consider the bible book of Psalms 103:8-10. "Jehovah is merciful and compassionate, slow to anger and abundant in loving kindness. He will not always find fault nor will he stay resentful forever. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor has he repaid us what our errors deserve"
Question 1: what does these verses tell me about God?
These verses show that Jehovah God is a merciful, compassionate and forgiving father.

Really nice. Only the fear of God can make you succeed. Sudying the bible will guide you on the right part to success. Just try God and see success at your doorsteps. Goodluck nigerians.

Fvcktards, use your brain. There is no f ucking GOD!!






Christianity claims that worshipping Ifa (am yorùbá) and all other orishas, is bad. Because God showed himself to some plagiarist and psycho ISRAELIs. If the so called religion, just like Ifa, didn't start simultaneously all over the world, but from an handful people, how can they be right?




Ifa started from yorùbá land. Christianity started from Antioch. How can Christians claim the good God since he is a punny to start from a place, just like Ifa??

He shows loving kindness to all people by giving us rain and sunshine and other good things of life either we serve him or not. He doesn't always find faults in all we do because he knows that we are made of dust. He doesn't dealt with us according to our sins or repay us for what we deserve whenever we sinned against him, rather he encourages us to repent and turn a new leaf.
Question 2: how can I apply these in my life?
One thing is to read and understand, and another is to apply what you have read. Ephesians 5:1 urges us to become imitator of God as beloved children. These verses can help us to do just that because it's lessons are applicable in all facets of life. How? Your friend may offend you greatly because he/she is imperfect, do you imitate God and show mercy by forgiving your friend when the offender apologizes?. Do you partners or marriage mates always record your partner's offences in order to make references later? Do you husband always battered your wife at the slightest opportunity over a mistake? Or do you because a fellow worshipper has wronged you ceased to greet or communicate with the person? Everybody irrespective of our age, gender or social status can learn a great deal from these bible verses.

Question 3: how can I use these verses to help others?
After you have prayerfully considered the lessons you have learned from these verses and try to apply them in your personal life, then the happiness and joy you derived will prompt you to tell others about it. Share what you have read and benefitted with your workmates, friends and family members so that they too can make the most out of their bible reading.
Many thanks for your time.
Ps: May the appropriate mods please move this topic to the front page so that everybody can learn from it.

Nice one. I really don't think any verse in the bible is useless; and even d seemingly 'boring' ones contain great lessons, which most of us are yet to find out.
