STEP VIII: CHARTING YOUR PATH
The Eight Step of
Inductive Bible Study is,
Study with a Pen and Notebook
“Then Jesus said to his disciples, "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it. What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matt. 16:24-26)
This is the step where you keep track of what you learn. By writing it down in an organized fashion, God’s Word will become more clear and crisp. We are able to record what God says to us, this way we will be able to take more ownership and then greater transformation. Then can look back and see God at work in our lives and this will be a great encouragement in times of struggle, and in times of joy. Plus, now you have notes to refer back to and even teach from!
Then, write your reflections in first person singular.
A book chart will help you greatly!
