Reading the Bible

Gino 5 Doves May 2022

Am I doing this?
Ezra 7:10 For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments.


When I read the scriptures, do I simply begin to read?

Or have I prepared my heart to seek the scriptures?

Do I tremble at his word, or do I simply read it?


Isaiah 66:5a Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word;


Do I read the scriptures only after I've eaten, or after first taking care of my physical needs?

Or how do I esteem his words?


Job 23:12b I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.


Is his word really the joy and rejoicing of my heart?
Jeremiah 15:16 Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.
Before I begin reading, do I at least pray something like?
Psalms 119:18 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
Do I only read the scriptures, or do I study the scriptures?

II Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.


Do I only read the scriptures, or do I search the scriptures?


Acts 17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
