10 Weeks Can Change A Life
Revelation | A 10 Week Bible Study was designed to radically transform the way you study scripture. This has been designed from the ground up to get you into the Word of God and to get the Word of God into you.
With thought-provoking questions, insightful commentary and a reading plan to “get it in you,” this 10 week Bible study will not only transform how you look at Revelation but scripture as a whole.
The Meditation Principle
When we read scripture over and over again, it starts to inhabit our thought life. That’s why reading scripture every day is so important. When we read the same book of the Bible over and over again, it not only occupies our thoughts but it gives us an opportunity to gain something much deeper: revelation.
David starts the Psalms by saying,
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night. Psalm 1:2
David knew that if he filled his mind and heart with the Word of God he would meditate on it day and night. If we set our delight (giving of our time and thoughts) on scripture, we’ll end up thinking about it even when we’re not trying to.
By reading Revelation (or any other book of the Bible) once a week for 10 weeks, you get the Word in you so that you start meditating on it without trying. As you drive, wait in line or sit on hold on the phone your thoughts drift toward God’s Word. That’s the power of consistently re-reading scripture.
Micro vs. Macro Learning
Micro learning is where most Bible studies live. Micro learning is good, but it will never help you go deep in God’s Word by itself. You have to add Macro learning. When you attend a Bible study (or do a self-study), most of the time you’re only focused on some small piece of that book, often even a small piece of one chapter. There simply isn’t the time to gain a broad knowledge of what you’re studying unless you commit to it outside the study.
Macro learning is where, through repetition, you read and re-read a book of the Bible. As you dig into small pieces during your Bible study sessions, you’re also gaining valuable knowledge of the book as a whole. This can help you see things you never would with the Bible study sessions alone.
What is the #1 thing you look for in a Bible study? Is it Micro or Macro? Do you want to learn to Meditate on God’s Word?
