STEP VI" APPLICATION!

This is the step where the rubber of the tires meets the road. All the previous five steps lead up to this. This is the main point of why we study the Bible, to do something with it.
KNOW IT!

Just as the Customs Officer asks you with a deep stern and convicting look when you enter a country, "do you have anything to declare," so must we declare Christ with even more passion and conviction! And we can only do it with knowing it, knowing Him and His Word. This is the step that helps us "internalize" what we are learning.
QUESTIONS: ASK AND LEARN!

Asking questions are the tools to take God's Word and examine it. After this, we learn and grow.
Be aware of the CONTEXT!

The Bible cannot mean something else from what it does say. The Bible cannot mean what it never meant!
OBSERVE IT. ASK WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

When observing, we first ask what it says, then and only then can we observe what it means. Too many people like to get into a hurry and "cut to the chase" for the meaning, and miss a lot and even get the meaning wrong!
"OBSERVE IT."(II TIM 2:15) ASK WHAT DOES IT SAY?

Here you can record your Bible reading progress!
Is not the Holy Spirit giving all Christians the same truth? The Holy Spirit is giving the same truth; the problem is not Him; but us! I once believed that the many different beliefs in the Christian faith demonstrated that it was not true. After all, how could there be so many disagreements about something that was supposed to be true?
I found over the years this is easily answered; the case is that we have more in common than not, but we tend to focus on the negative distinctions and not our unity.
