主题

操练,习惯, 安静的时间, 关系, 神的话语


背诵经文

提摩太后 3:16


开头的祷告(5-10分钟)


团队建造(10分钟)

这是谁的声音?(游戏)


让三个学生到房间的一个单独的地方,在那里他们不能被看到。也许可以把他们放在窗帘或墙壁后面。如果没有其他办法,就让其他学生转过身去。


游戏的目的是让每个被选中的学生说一个特定的句子。他们每个人都得说出这句话,小组的其他人要猜是谁的声音。为了增加难度,让被选中的学生尝试改变他们的声音。可以选用幽默的短语来增加一些笑声。


例如,"今天将是阳光灿烂的一天!" "同义词又可称为什么?" "美国需要提升信仰。"


课堂起头(5分钟)

- 是否很难猜到谁在说哪句话?

- 是什么让你难以或容易正确识别每个人?


今天我们要讨论的是,学会好好学习圣经为什么可以帮助建立我们与神的关系,因为这是我们直接听从神的方式。没猜测的必要! 我们可以相信,神正在通过祂的圣经与我们交谈。


深入学习(25分钟)

让我们从创世记开始,更详细地了解这个问题。


读:创世记2:7-22(请一位或多位学生阅读这段经文。)

问题讨论:

1. 神与亚当和夏娃的关系如何?

2. 他们的接触有多直接?

3. 这种接触在哪些方面与我们今天的接触不同?


读:出埃及记3:1-10

问题讨论:

1. 神与摩西的关系如何?

2. 他们的接触有多直接?

3. 这种接触在哪些方面与我们今天的接触不同?


读:使徒行传9:1-8

问题讨论:

1. 神与保罗的关系如何?

2. 他们的接触有多直接?

3. 这种接触在哪些方面与我们今天的接触不同?


有时人们会羡慕亚当、亚伯拉罕、摩西或保罗。但即使是门徒也没有我们所拥有的完整的神的启示。我们有圣经--神对人完整的启示。有些事情我们知道,而亚当不知道,我们有亚伯拉罕所没有的应许。有些关于神的事实是摩西所不知道的,有些与神的亲近是连保罗都没有享受过的。读经是我们听从神的方式--直接、彻底、亲密。


应用(20-40分钟)


- 你曾经从这个角度来看读经吗?

- 有多少人认为读经是枯燥的、搞不清的、困难的,或者是一件苦差事?

- 这种看法对你的读经行为会有什么影响?

- 你读圣经的程度如何?

- 这种看法会如何影响你与主的关系?


如果想与神建立密切的关系,你需要听祂说话。听祂说话最好的方法是读圣经。现在让我来试着帮助你开始更多地听从神。


开始一个习惯:

我想与你们分享各种方法,让你们开始养成通过圣经听从神的习惯。当我们读这些内容时,你可能想作些笔记。

  • 一日一箴言

你可能听说过《箴言》这本书。这是一本旧约的书,充满了智慧的话语和生活的指导。有趣的是,它有31章,试着在这个月的每一天都读一章。从第一章开始,每天读一章。如果已经是第九天了,就从箴言第9章开始。还要挑战自己,每周背一节箴言。你会发现它们相当容易背,这样这些真理就会永远留在你的脑子里。

******************

一日一箴言(可选活动)

给学生一个机会,让他们读今天的一章箴言。如果今天是15号,让他们读箴言15章。这将帮助他们看到需要多长时间,也会从那段经文中收获一些真理。请他们分享他们学到的。

******************

  • 镜子里的经文

你很有可能每天都会在镜子前呆上一段时间。无论是刷牙、整理头发还是化妆,你在镜子前花的时间应该足够来读一些经文。查阅一些鼓舞人心、有帮助或有力量的经文,把它们写在索引卡或纸条上。然后,把它们贴在你卧室的镜子上或浴室的水槽上。当你早上洗漱时,就在你的脑海中重复这些经文。这是开始新的一天的好方法,也是背诵经文的一个简单方法。此外,你也不会对自己的外表那么在意了。

******************

镜子里的经文(可选活动)

分发一些索引卡片,让学生查阅并写下一两句他们最喜欢的经文。挑战他们每周用一张卡片,一旦第一张卡片被记住了,就用新的卡片代替。

******************

  • 圣经博客

以前,读经最有效的方法之一是记笔记。有些人仍然在记笔记--把笔放在书页上,思考他们刚刚读过的东西。而免费的在线记能把你的想法以博客的形式和大家分享。也许你可以用博客来读《圣经》,或《圣经》中的一本书,帮助自己消化你所读的内容。从某本福音书开始,思考耶稣的生活。或者从使徒行传开始,将你所读的内容与现代教会进行比较。思考你所读的内容,记录祷告,或鼓励其他读者。邀请朋友关注你的博客并发表评论。

******************

圣经博客(可选活动)

在网上寻找类似上述的博客。如果你简单地在谷歌上搜索 "穿越圣经的博客",就有好几个。如果你有办法,给你的学生看一个,甚至帮助他们建一个。更妙的是,也许你可以以小组的形式建立一个,并分担任务--可以是一个讨论区,学生们在网上分享他们对圣经经文的解释,以帮助整个班级消化所读内容。

******************

  • 慢读/慢思

不要觉得你必须一下子读完一堆东西。专注于理解,而不是想着钻研整本圣经。读一节经文,然后思考几分钟。它是什么意思?你学到了什么新东西?然后再读一遍。在第二次读时,你是否注意到或学到更多东西?这种做法会帮助你从读经中得到最大的收获,而不是只读最多的圣经。

******************

慢读/慢思(可选活动)

让学生选择一篇诗篇来读。让他们慢慢地读,一节一节地读,默想他们所读的内容。甚至可以让他们在每节经文后暂停一下,以便真正沉浸在所读的内容中。然后,让他们分享他们学到的东西。他们可能会有不同的见解,但这种做法会让他们知道这样做其实不难。

******************

  • 找一个读经计划

外面有各种圣经阅读计划。你可以在一年内读完整本圣经,或者只读新约圣经。这些计划将圣经分成若干部分,让你每天读一段经文。也有一些圣经是带这些计划的。大多数计划可以让你在一年内读完一遍圣经,每天花20分钟左右的时间阅读。新约的时间甚至更短。


这些只是一些想法,还有许多其他想法。当我们今天在这里试用它们时,盼望你们能找到一个可以作为习惯的方法。


下次我们互相检查,看看我们的新习惯做得如何。试试吧!让我们现在就开始培养学习圣经的习惯。


结束祷告(10分钟)


为学生们祈祷,让他们对学习圣经产生终生的热情。

Spiritual Habits (Part 1)

Lesson 2: Studying the Bible (Part 1)

LESSON OBJECTIVES

Goals

1. To help students understand that Bible study is a way they can hear directly from God

2. To help students understand that the relationship they can have with God is just as good as the relationship Biblical characters had with God

3. To give students an opportunity to start the habit of Bible study by practicing some ideas with them during your time together


Topics

Discipline, Habits, Quiet Time, Relationships, Word of God


Scripture Memorization

Timothy 3:16


OPENING PRAYER (5 to 10 minutes)

GROUP BUILDING (10 minutes)

Whose Voice is That? (Game)


Send three students to a separate part of the room where they cannot be seen. Perhaps you can put them behind a curtain or wall. If nothing else have the rest of the students turn away.


The object is for each of the selected students to say a particular phrase. Each of them says it, and the rest of your group has to guess whose voice is whose. To make it more difficult, you can have the selected students try to disguise their voices. Use humorous phrases to add some laughter to the mix.Examples: "It's gonna be bright and sunny all day!" "Why do they call it a pew?" "What's another word for thesaurus?" "America needs a faith lift."

GETTING STARTED (5 minutes)

• Was it hard to guess who was saying which statement?

• What made it difficult or easy for you to identify each person correctly?Today we’re going to discuss how learning to study the Bible well can build up our relationship with God because it is how we hear directly from Him. There’s no guessing necessary! We can have confidence that God is talking to us through His Scriptures.

DIGGING IN (25 minutes)

Let's look at this in more detail, starting back in the book of Genesis.Read Genesis 2:7-22 (Have one or more students read this passage.)Discussion Questions:

1. What type of relationship does it seem like God had with Adam & Eve?

2. How direct was their contact?

3. In what ways is that contact different from ours today?


Read Genesis 12:1-7Discussion Questions:

1. What type of relationship does it seem like God had with Abraham?

2. How direct was their contact?

3. In what ways is that contact different from ours today?


Read Exodus 3:1-10Discussion Questions:

1. What type of relationship does it seem like God had with Moses?

2. How direct was their contact?

3. In what ways is that contact different from ours today?Now, let’s go to the New Testament. Find Acts 9.


Read Acts 9:1-8Discussion Questions:

1. What type of relationship does it seem like God had with Paul?

2. How direct was their contact?

3. In what ways is that contact different from ours today?Sometimes people are jealous of


Adam, Abraham, Moses, or Paul. But not even the disciples have the fullness of God’s revelation that we have. We have the Bible—God’s complete revelation to mankind. There are things we know that Adam didn’t, promises we have that didn’t belong to Abraham. There are facts about God that Moses wasn’t privy too, and a closeness to God that not even Paul enjoyed. Bible study is the way we hear from God—directly, thoroughly, and closely.

MAKING IT REAL (20 - 40 minutes)


• Have you ever thought about Bible study this way?

• How many of you think of reading the Bible as boring, confusing, difficult, or a chore?

• How does this change the act of reading from the Bible?

• How much do you read the Bible?

• How do you think this effects your relationship with the Lord?If you want a close relationship


with God, you need to hear from Him. The best way to hear from Him is by reading the Bible. I told you last week that I didn’t want to guilt you into anything, and I don’t. So instead of telling you that you don’t read the Bible enough, I want to help you start hearing from God more.


Start a Habit:

I want to share with you a variety of ways that you can begin the habit of hearing from God through the Bible. As we go through these, you may want to jot down a few ideas.


A Proverb a Day

You’ve probably heard of the book of Proverbs. It’s an Old Testament book that is full of wise sayings and guidance for life. What’s cool is that there are 31 of them. Try reading a Proverb for every day of the month. Start on the first, and read one every single day. If it’s already the ninth, just start with Proverbs 9. Also challenge yourself and memorize one verse from proverbs each week. You’ll find them pretty easy to memorize, and then those truths will be in your head for good.


A Proverb a Day (Optional Activity)

Give students a chance to read one chapter of Proverbs for today. If it is the 15th, have them read Proverbs 15. This will help them see how long it takes, and there will be some truth they can glean from that passage afterwards. Invite them to share one thing they’ve learned.


A Verse in the Mirror

There’s a pretty good chance you spend time in front of the mirror each day. Whether you’re brushing your teeth, fixing your hair, or putting on make-up, you spend enough time in front of the mirror to actually read some Scripture. Look up some verses that are inspiring, helpful, or powerful, and write them on an index card or scrap paper. Then, tape them to your bedroom mirror or over your bathroom sink. As you get ready in the morning, repeat these verses in your mind. It’s a great way to start the day, and an easy way to memorize Scripture. Plus, you won’t fuss over your appearance so much!


A Verse in the Mirror (Optional Activity)

Pass out some index cards and have students look up and actually write down one or two of their favorite verses. Challenge them to keep one card up each week, replacing it with a new one once the first one is committed to memory.


Blog Through the Bible

In the old days, one of the most helpful disciplines in reading Scripture was by journaling. Some people still journal—putting pen to page and reflecting on what they’ve just read. But free online journals put your thoughts out there to share in the form of blogs. Maybe you can blog through the Bible, or a book of the Bible, and help yourself digest what you’re reading. Start with one of the Gospels and reflect on the life of Jesus. Or begin with the book of Acts and compare what you read with the modern-day church. Reflect on what you read, record prayers, or encourage other readers. Invite friends to follow your blog and post comments.


Blog Through the Bible (Optional Activity)

Look online for a blog like that described above. There are several if you simply Google “blog through the Bible.” If you have the means, show your students one—or even help them set one up for themselves. Better yet, maybe you can set one up as a group and share the task—it can be a discussion board of sorts with students sharing their interpretations of Bible passages online to help the entire class digest the readings.)


Read Slow/Think Slow

Don’t feel like you have to read a bunch of stuff at once. Focus on understanding, not plowing through the whole Bible. Read a verse, then think about it for a few minutes. What does it mean? What are you learning new? Read the same verse again. Did you notice or learn anything more upon your second reading? This practice will help you get the most out of your Bible reading instead of just reading the most of the Bible you can.


Read Slow/Think Slow (Optional Activity)

Have students pick a Psalm to read. Have them take it slowly, reading verse by verse, contemplating what they’re reading. Maybe even have them pause after each verse to really soak in what they've read. Then, have them share what they learned. They might have different insights, but this practice will show them how easy it is to do this.


Get a Bible Reading Plan

There are a ton of Bible reading plans out there. You can read through the whole Bible in a year, or just the New Testament. These plans split up the Bible in parts and have you read sections of Scripture each day. There are also Bibles that are produced with these plans included. Most plans can get you through the Bible in one year spending around 20 minutes reading per day. The New Testament takes even less time.These are just some ideas. There are many others. But as we’ve practiced them here today, hopefully you’ve found one that you can adopt as a permanent habit.Next week we’re going to check up on each other and see how we’re doing with our new habits. Try them out! Start developing the habit of Bible study now.

CLOSING PRAYER (10 minutes)

Pray that your students develop a life-long passion for Bible study.
