If we’re honest with ourselves, studying the Bible can be a little intimidating. Not everyone has the opportunity to get a seminary degree or sit through theology classes, but let me tell you, that’s not necessary. Because each of us, every single believer, has the Holy Spirit of God inside us to bring knowledge and understanding through the Word of God.
I created these worksheets in order to help myself dive deeply into the text in a way that wasn’t overwhelming. Walking through these worksheets as I study my Bible helps me to focus solely on the Word itself. It also guards me from making my quiet time or the Bible about ME or what I want to get out of my time in the Word.
Click the links below to access the PDFs. The first PDF is intended to guide you through prayer and bible study. There are also worksheets for each chapter of 2 Corinthians and Ephesians with space for making notes and markings during your study.
I find it helpful to print out the text and put it into a binder or on a clipboard. I then make all of my markings, underlines, word study notes, and questions in between the text or in the margins.
I hope you find this to be a helpful tool in seeking the character of God through His Word.
*I plan to add more books of the Bible in the future. If you have any specific requests please let me know!*
