As I discussed from the pulpit getting into the Word doesn’t mean we have to sign up for courses from a seminary. First we need to simply read. Don’t worry about your depth of knowledge; you won’t understand it the first time through, if you did why study. Let God speak to you through his word. This doesn’t mean we don’t prepare, we prepare with prayer. Ask God to help bring to mind what he has for you to learn. Use a study Bible, talk to someone who knows a little more (like your pastor or Bob Cannon), and dive in. As verses rise to the surface, strike you as interesting, or catch your attention, give them some extra thought. Mediate and memorize those verses that stand out.
