-Directions on How to Hear Sermons


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

Most of the resources for study will be off-site links, but before you go, here are a few tidbits for you.

There are few things of equal value to the life of a Christian as the study of the word of God, and I don't mean just reading it, I mean truly studying it. Reading it is only the beginning of study, but true study includes all of the following:

1) Reading of scripture in humility, as though you are meeting directly with God.
2) Searching scripture out to build a web of connections, allowing scripture to interpret scripture.
3) Much quiet meditation on what you have found.
4) If need be, consult trusted commentaries for additional insight.
5) Application of what you have learned, to your life.
6) Measuring and contemplation of what has happened in your life because of it.
7) A continual adjustment and conformity to newfound understanding of God's word.
8) Having the whole process all the way through, bathed in prayer.

The key thing to remember is that we are doing our studying to learn of God, who is much higher than we are. His very nature being so much higher than us requires us to seek Him earnestly, not haphazardly, or when we get around to it. But He has promised that if we seek Him, we will find Him....

Jeremiah 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
