Bible Reading: A Help

1. In the beginning, ask God to send you His Holy Spirit to help you understand this Scripture, because without him I can not understand God’s Word.
2. Read the text several times, preferably loud, so that it can memorize.
2. Ask the text, perhaps with the questions of a Martin Luther:

What is written?
What do I have to thank?
What do I have to confess?
What can I ask for?

Questions today could be:

What does the text say about God?
How does God see us humans (me)?
Where does the text touch my life?
Where is it similar?
Where does the text question me?
What consequences does the reading have for me?
