Getting the Most Out of Your Bible Study
We're a third of the way through the year...how is your Bible reading going? Are you feeling like you are in a rut in your Bible study or wanting to go deeper in your time in the Word? We'd love to help by offering some suggestions to help you go deeper in your study of God's Word. It is in this Word that we find the message of life and we are able to live according to it (Ps. 119:107), so it is well worth spending quality time in it.
