Do you struggle to find time to study Scripture in a meaningful way?
Are you distracted from getting into the Word, especially with so much else that needs to be done?
Maybe you crave spiritual growth, but reading your Bible doesn’t seem to translate into evidence of the investment of your time.
Although I came to know Jesus as my Lord and Savior in college, it was years before I actually began reading my Bible for myself. Sure, I’d pick it up from time to time, looking for a verse that related to a particular challenge or trial. I’d browse the concordance hoping to find an answer. But I wasn’t committed to a daily time of reading Scripture because as a young Christian, I didn’t realize that should be a part of my faith practice and I didn’t know where to start. It wasn’t until my friend challenged me to get real with God that I learned for the first time that daily Bible reading was key to growing in my faith.
We can’t hear from God if we don’t know His voice.
We can’t use the wisdom He provides us with, if we don’t learn the wisdom He conveys to us in Scripture.
We can’t experience the blessings that come from obeying the Word if we don’t know the Word we’re called to obey.
Experiencing growth in our faith is utterly dependent on the discipline of daily Bible reading.
There is no other way around it. Just like we can’t grow physically stronger without engaging in a strength-training exercise routine, we won’t grow spiritually stronger without studying Scripture.
It’s the long-haul investment that bears the results.
So, if you’re willing to take the first step and start the process of spiritual growth, we’ve got a Scripture study method that makes the process simple for you!
The R.A.W. Scripture Study Method makes reading the Word a daily doable endeavor!
How does the R.A.W. Scripture Study Method work?
This R.A.W. Scripture study method is super simple! It provides you with a pattern for studying a particular verse within the context of the chapter
- R – READ the verse in context in the chapter.
- A – Consider how the verse APPLIES to your life today.
- W – WRITE out the key verse as a way to remember the Scripture.
Repeat the pattern for each verse on the R.A.W. Scripture Calendar in whatever pattern works best for you.
This R.A.W. Scripture Study Method is exactly what you need to take that next step in growing in your faith. Plus you can gain accountability and encouragement in the More to Be Tribe Facebook group. Each week we study and discuss the key R.A.W. Scripture verses each week.
In 2018, we used the R.A.W. Scripture Study Method to study two key passages of Scripture a week. You’ll find those calendars in this resource bundle.
In 2019, we used the R.A.W. Scripture Study Method in partnership with Brave Together: Devoted to God and Each Other, which is a 52-week devotional focusing on 52 principles that we, as women of God, can walk out bravely together. You’ll find that the R.A.W. Scripture Calendar includes these key principles and verses.
In 2020, we’re using the R.A.W. Scripture Study Method in partnership with Encounter God: 52 Scripture Cards for studying the names and attributes of God.
