Questions from today’s speaker. You can use some of these in Growth Groups or alone:

Read through 2 Timothy 3:10 – 4:5

  • What do you enjoy about reading the Bible?
  • What do you find challenging about reading the Bible?
  • What do you think are the main purposes of the Bible?
  • Paul writes to Timothy that all scripture is ‘God-breathed’ (inspired) in verses 16-17. How do you think this works out in practice?
  • Paul writes that scripture is ‘useful for teaching, correcting and training in righteousness’. Have you had experience of this?
  • What helps you read the Bible? How could you adopt a habit of reading it more often?
  • If someone said they’d just got a BIble for the first time. How would you advise them to start reading it?

Reading the Bible – Where to Start?

It’s good to get into a daily habit of reading the Bible. There are lots of ways to do this. Have a look at our page ‘How can I read the Bible?’ for some ideas. If you need help, do ask us – we’d love to help!

Recommended Reading for this Series

There are plenty of good books on ‘Healthy Habits’ (or Spiritual Disciplines). Here are a few:

  • The Life You’ve Always Wanted – by John Ortberg
  • Holy Habits – by Andrew Roberts
  • Celebration of Discipline – Richard Foster (an old classic)

What can I pray for?

  • Watch the Bible Society Video from the service here
  • Take time to pray – for the work of the Bible Society in Ukraine and the people there
  • Give thanks for the Bible and pray for our local community that more people would read it and get to know God better.
