Using the three-step Bible study process—observe, interpret, and apply—you’re bound to learn new things about God.
The observe phase doesn’t require any tools beyond a copy of the Scripture itself. (If you’re in search of one, we have a recommendation for you.) The Faithlife Study Bible app is perfect for the interpret phase, with its built-in study notes, multimedia resources, and infographics.
When you reach the application phase, use the acronym SPECT to quickly identify truths to apply:
- Is there a sin for me to forsake?
- Is there any promise to claim?
- Is there an example for me to follow?
- Is there any command for me to obey?
- Is there anything to be thankful for today?
These simple questions help you quickly examine a passage from multiple perspectives. Let’s use them on today’s Verse of the Day. “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, and the former things shall not be remembered or come to mind.”
Do you see any sins, promises, examples, commands, or reasons to be thankful?
