Email Tips: By You

2 Corinthians 2:14 is a good example of how you can use a single verse to have family Bible study. Anyone can do this. Everyone should.

“Now thanks be unto God”
Start with prayer and thanking God in every situation, which is God’s will (1 Thess 5:18).

“which always causeth us to triumph in Christ”
Don’t let how your ministry is received discourage you. Paul thanks God that they always triumph in Christ no matter how they are received. Even Christ was rejected. Either they can glorify God by life or by death (Phil 1:20). This is what is called a win-win or always triumphing. Most ministry does not kill us – especially short ones done at home.

“and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge”
Teaching the truth of God rightly divided to your family will provide feedback concerning their spiritual growth by using the Bible verse taste test. Pepper the knowledge of God in your conversations and serve them up in your studies to see whether they think it sweet or bitter.

“by us in every place”
The knowledge of Christ is known to others “by us”. Christ is only known by people “in every place” where his ministers teach him. If you don’t take opportunity to minister God’s word in your home then the savour of Christ is not known in your home. How things smell around your home is controlled by you.

It’s that easy. End how you started: with prayer. There are 31,102 verses in the Bible. Thats enough verses to teach one a day for 85 years. Start with a 1-2 days a week.

There is plenty of material for doing 5-10 minute one verse Bible studies at home with your friends, family, spouse, or children. Start with Paul’s epistles. Teach each verse in context. Change the way your home smells.

For making all men see,
