A word of encouragement from a sojourner for Truth

Problems studying

II Peter 3:15-16 ….Paul…hath written unto you;….some things hard to be understood….
Several problems arise as we begin to study the word of God. First, just reading the book presents quite a hurdle. Second, reading with understanding stands in our path. Our tendency is to scan it and then jump to application. However to read with understanding requires a methodical approach. Thus we need to observe the text asking ourselves, what does it say. Take down notes and ask lots of questions about the text. Who, what, where, when and why.
