Making Observations, then bringing questions based on the observations can help us to look deeper at the Word of God.
Sometimes when we don’t look at the deeper context or wider sections of scripture we miss the character of God. Or maybe we come up with different theological points not based on the Scriptures. Or it can lead to a life without the transformation, both in perspective and action. It might make us feel good, but it may not be leading to transformation and change.
Your belief in who you are, and seeing others, but also our perspective towards horrible situations and traumatic moments.
You can have incredibly strong faith and love for God, but still not know how to read the Bible. And when we truly learn to read the scriptures we can get the fullness of the promises in scripture.
In order to get a true context of a text within John 3 we would need to read the gospels. But this doesn’t mean we have to read everything first to understand. To really understand a passage in its depths we need to have read all the Gospels, and many other books of scripture. We should dive in and relish the Gospels as Christians.
When the whole of the bible is unraveled as we read it can change our heart. What if we start out with a lack of desire to read the word. That’s a problem with the heart. So the solution is actually found in the Word. The more we read it, and study it, and hide it away in our hearts, the more we want to open it.
As a good Bible Student looks at the questions, how does one start to understand what all these words mean, Born Again, Kingdom of God. We can find these explained within the scriptures throughout the new testament.
Noting the observations and getting the questions answered, is similar to a detective or a scientist, and is a great study technique for the Christian.
By getting our observations and questions answered or starting to look at these questions we find we can develop an interest in the outcome or the final answer.
