Essential Journey to the Cross: Apply

Lenten Bible Reading Guide  

ApplyYour Lenten Essential Journey to the Cross will begin soon and we're almost finished with reviewing the five step Scripture Union Bible Reading Method on which it is based. The first 3 steps are Pray, Read and Reflect.

Now, we're ready for the fourth step.

Step 4: Apply

God gave us his word for "teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness" (2 Timothy 3:16). Its purpose is not just to give us information about God but to help us live in the proper relationship to him.  If we are willing, the Holy Spirit can use God's Word to shape our lives in the direction of greater godliness. That's why this step is so important. After you've reflected on the meaning of the passage, read the "Apply" section for that day. It will help you apply God's Word that day to your life.

Remember, your goal is to use what you've learned that day to become more like Jesus.

Get Ready! Lenten Bible Readings Start Monday, March 6!
