The 52 Key Chapters of the Bible Fellowship Using the Devotional Bible Study Method For the Purpose of Personal Mastery of the Content of God’s Word
Suggested Resources:
1. A Bible you can mark up
2. The 52 Key Chapter Study Sheet
3. A personal journal (Moleskin or similar)
4. A MacArthur Study Bible (or similar)
5. A Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudem (or similar)
6. A portable Audio Bible (NIV/ESV Dramatized or similar)
7. An electronic Bible Study Program (Logos or similar)
A Simple Pattern:
1. First pray and ask God for the Psalm 119:18 (underlined or highlighted in your Bible) promised insight, before you study the Word.
2. Then read the passage (a verse, a few verses, or a chapter) looking for a simple summary of what that portion is about. Write that summary down in your journal.
3. Now go back through and find as many truths, insights, principles, lessons, or doctrines as you can find, briefly describing them and the verse reference for where you found them in your journal.
4. Finally, look over that list and pick the one or two most powerful lessons and apply that truth to your own life in the form of an application prayer that you write down. Frame your prayer as asking God to begin to unleash in your life the doctrine, insight, or lesson that you just found in that passage. Personal application is perhaps the most difficult part of any Bible Study.
The Goal:
God wants us as men to be constantly looking into the mirror of God’s Word (James 1:21-25), and wanting to be doers and not merely hearers; and being changed (2 Cor. 3:18) more and more into His image. As we study, grow, and change, those closest to us will be drawn to the lessons we are learning as we talk about how God is at work changing our lives. Our wife will be drawn to want to know what we are doing and at times even want to be a part. Our children can hardly resist the personal insights we are finding God pointing out to us in His Word. As the Spirit convicts us about various areas, by faith we invite Christ to be changing areas of our life.
Our co-workers will notice that we are talking about God’s Word in such a personal, familiar way, they will often ask how we understand the Bible. The net result in every dimension of our lives is: that we grow in grace (what God does) and knowledge (what we do) more and more each day (2 Peter 3:18).
