cph.org 2 You probably know that God calls His people to study the Scriptures. Good intentions and excitement get you started—but you might be wondering where to go from there. Before you figure out what to study (see the next page for more on that), it's important to understand why we read the Bible. First, God has promised to meet us in His Word, so when we read the Bible, we encounter the living God. God is directly present there, so reading God's Word is one way we can experience God this side of heaven. Through Scripture, the Holy Spirit works in our hearts to give us faith. Gathering in community around Scripture is crucial. Whether you go to a Sunday morning Bible class, attend a midweek community group, or meet with a friend over coffee, having Christian relationships where you learn more about your Savior is imperative to your Christian life. When you study God's Word with others, you're able to hold one another accountable and rightly study the Scriptures. The Christian life is all about relationships—relationships between God, you, and your neighbor. As you gather together around God's Word, you'll grow closer to your Savior and to your brothers and sisters in Christ. You'll be able to comfort one another with the Gospel, confess your sins to one another, and selflessly serve one another. And it all starts with God's Word. I want to study God's Word! Where do I start?
