My Top 15 Elements for Successful Bible Study – BibleGateway.com

As we grow in our walk with Christ, knowing God’s word (and seeking it with zeal) is one of the most important things we can do.  After all, he’s revealed himself to us in two primary ways: Through his Holy Spirit, which we received as a gift when we became Christians, and in his Word.

This post is the fourth of 15.  In each post, I’ll be examining my personal “Top 15″ things leading to successful bible study.  I want to be clear that this may not be your top 15.  But I’ve observed that over the last six months, all of these things play an important role in my spiritual journey.  Maybe a few of them will be valuable for you, too.

Source Materials – Bible Gateway.com  When I’m writing (I keep my journal online in the form of this blog), it’s really helpful to have an online bible that is incredibly easy to search by text, topic or keyword.
I most frequently use BibleGateway.com to easily find and link the scripture I’m referring to.  This is particularly handy when searching for a passage by keywords (no, I am nowhere near memorizing the bible yet!).
For bloggers, there is also a handy embedding feature that allows you to search for the passage you want, and to embed it into your blog with one click.  Bible Gateway is also really nice for flipping between translations, browsing passages by themes (e.g., mourning or eschatology) and listening to audio versions of the text.

  3. Hey there! I’ve been reading your web site for a while now and
    finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a
    shout out from Porter Texas! Just wanted to tell you keep up the great job!

  4. Hey! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog such
    as yours require a lot of work? I’m brand
    new to running a blog however I do write in my journal every day.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and thoughts
    online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!

  5. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading
    properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.

    I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the
    same outcome.
