“Read your Bible, pray everyday and you’ll…grow…grow…grow…” If you grew up in the church or around a Christian influence you are probably familiar with this song. It seems oversimplified. And to one degree it is. The Christian life is not just a 1+1=2 walk. However, there are certainly disciplines of the Christian life that really are means of grace from God. Two of the vital ones are Scripture reading and prayer.
But aside from reading random passages daily and muttering a few short prayers a day at meal time, how can one go deeper in your Bible study? Be encouraged! You are not the only one to have asked or be asking that question. A 13 year old girl once asked Pastor John Piper that very same question. You can find his letter of response here.
Enjoy! And as always, be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day!
