Email Tips: Ask, Why

This "tip" was originally delivered on Saturday, October 17th, 2009 .

Before you study the Bible, pray.
Before you pray, ask ‘Why do I study the Bible?’

It is easy to go through the motions of Bible
study without the proper motivation. Doing something
with desire will make your study more effective. You
will catch things you would not otherwise.

Prayer can generate desire as you remind yourself
and tell God why you study his words everyday.

You can use this same technique in other areas of
your life that become routine: work, cleaning,
exercising, education.

Ask yourself “why?” and remember 1 Cor 10:31.

For his glory,

Justin Curtis Johnson
