- 在过去的一周里,有多少人试着读过圣经?

- 进展如何?

- 我们上周谈到的方法中,你试了哪些?

- 哪种方法效果最好?

- 哪种方法最难?

- 如果你上个星期在读圣经时遇到了困难,是什么困难?坦白说,是什么阻碍了你以你想要的方式学习?


今天,我们想在学习圣经的池子里再深入一步。希望通过我们过去几周的讨论,进入圣经可以成为你余生保持的一个属灵习惯。


深入学习(25分钟)

大家翻到新约《提摩太后书》。


读:提摩太后书3:16-17

这两节经文你可能已经听说过了。大多数人在试图证明《圣经》是神所默示的时都会提到这两节经文。然而,我们常常错过后面的内容。


这节经文说,圣经是有益的,有用的,对事物有益。你想过这个问题吗?圣经不是一个毫无意义的故事集。我们所读的经文不仅适用于它们被写的时候--它们也有当代的意义。


问题讨论:

1. 根据这些经文,圣经有什么用处?(教训、督责、改正、在义上的教导。)

2. 根据第17节,这种训练的最终目的是什么?(使我们有能力做善工。)


因此,我们对圣经的研究应该集中在一件事上,使我们的生活有所改变。我们读圣经并不是因为神说要读,传道人建议要读,也不是出于责任或义务,更不是为了把它从我们的清单上划掉。圣经应该改变我们。让我们更详细地介绍一下阅读和研究圣经的目的。


教导

圣经在教导方面是很好的。我们也应该认识到,它不是教导我们所有的事。如果你想知道一个奶酪汉堡里有多少卡路里,或者从巴西到瑞士有多远,圣经没有说这些。然而,在圣经所要教导的主题上,它有大量的有用的指导。


读:罗马书15:4

圣经就是为了这个目的而写的:指导我们,给我们带来盼望。

问题讨论:

1. 你在阅读圣经的时候学到了新东西吗?是什么?


督责

我们不常使用这个词,但督责是一个非常属灵的概念。这个词在圣经的其他地方被用来描述斥责或责备某人的行为。在旧约中,这个词实际上带有某种苦的意思。有时,对抗和责备可能是苦的,但这个词也带有改善的意思。


写圣经不是为了冒犯我们,让我们生气,而是为了让我们清醒,使我们得到改善。这并不是说《圣经》是一本自助书,但当我们面对神的话语,并把它们放在心上时,我们应该会有更好的改变。


问题讨论:

1. 你在阅读圣经时有感到被责备的时候吗?

2. 无论你是否喜欢,这种与神的话对峙的结果是否在某种程度上改善了你的生活?


归正

这个词的含义与前面那个词相似。同样,当我们学习圣经并理解它的内容时,我们可能需要纠正我们的生活。不要把神的话视为理所当然。当我们接触到他的教导时,我们应该准备好接受纠正。


读:使徒行传2:36-37

这段经文在更受欢迎的使徒行传2:38之前,彼得在那里指示众人受洗。不过在这些经文中,我们看到了改正的第一手资料。


问题讨论:

1. 在第36节中,神通过他的仆人彼得说了什么话?(耶稣是基督。)

2. 这对第37节中的人有什么影响?(觉得扎心。)

3. 人们在被定罪后问什么?("我们当怎样行?")


每当读完一段圣经,我们都应该问自己:"我们当怎样行?"


操练

提摩太后书3:16指出,圣经的最后一种帮助方式是通过操练--特别是在义的方面。


如果你想解数学问题,你就得学习数学。如果你想成为一名工程师,你就得去读一所好的工程学院。如果你想成为优秀的乐器演奏者,你就得在音乐大师手下接受训练。


同样地,如果你想知道如何过一个虔诚的生活,你就应该学习圣经。最重要的是,你应该学习耶稣的生活,他是这一切的主。


但这并不那么容易。"操练"这个词也可以翻译为 "纪律"。你不能每天略读一次圣经,只读几分钟就指望在你所做的一切中讨神喜悦。这需要训练、纪律和努力去作。


读:希伯来书12:11

问题讨论:

1. 圣经中关于操练的想法对吗?为什么对/不?

2. 在生活里,管教在哪些方面被说成是不好的?


操练和管教在当时可能并不有趣,但事后我们会有巨大的收获。这一点在我们通过学习圣经与神的关系上是再真实不过了。


应用(20分钟)

所以我们可以看到,圣经对某些事情--很多事情--都有益处。在结束今天的学习之前,我想回到将我们所学的东西应用到我们的生活的做法。我们究竟该如何做呢?


刚刚我们指出,我们应该像彼得讲道中的听众一样,问:"我们该怎么做?”


本周我想向你们提出挑战。当你读经的时候,每次读完一段经文都问自己:"我该怎么做?"


也许你上周每天都读了一章箴言。在本周结束时,问自己:"对于我刚刚读到的内容,我需要做什么?" 也许你写下了一些经文,把它们放在你的镜子上。在准备上学的时候读它们。这周,当你读完后,问问自己,"今天我怎样才能把它付诸实践?"


我想现在就和你一起实践,这样你就能清楚地知道我的意思。希望你能快速掌握,并发现这是对你新形成的读经习惯的一个简单变化。


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

活动(15分钟)

我应该做什么?

找一段你认为你的小组会受益的经文。也许你的小组一直在为团结而努力,或者他们正在为一些特别的事而挣扎,如同伴的压力、醉酒或闲言碎语。查阅对他们有帮助的经文,给他们时间自己读。如果时间允许,让学生自己找一个安静的地方来完成这项活动。


要求他们读2-3遍这段经文,他们完成后,在他们的作业本上,或在一张纸上写下他们对 "我应该怎么做 "这一问题的答案。在你把大家重新召集起来之前,给他们几分钟的时间自己做。然后请每个学生分享他们对以下问题的回答。


- 读完这段话后,你对要完成的任务的想法是什么?

- 要体会到这样的收获是否很难?为什么是/不?

- 这段经文与其他段落相比,难度如何?

- 你如何能轻易地把问 "我应该做什么 "的做法变成你生活中的一种属灵习惯?

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

记住,所有的经文都对某件事有帮助。如果看不出有什么收获,那可能只是因为你没有完全理解那段经文。花点时间,反复阅读。要有收获,并不总是能一蹴而就的。向我或其他你信任的人寻求建议。大多数人都愿意帮助的。


结束祷告(5分钟)

为学生祷告,盼望他们能在本周的圣经学习中实施这一应用过程。下周一定要问他们作得如何。

Spiritual Habits (Part 1)

Lesson 3: Studying the Bible (Part 2)

LESSON OBJECTIVES Goals

1. For the students to understand the importance of regular Bible study

2. To inspire students not just to read the Bible, but to study it closely

3. To equip students to apply what they study into their own lives


Topics

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


Scripture Memorization

2 Timothy 3:16-17


OPENING PRAYER (5 to 10 minutes)

GROUP BUILDING (15 minutes)


GETTING STARTED (10 minutes)

(The following questions reflect upon the previous lesson: Studying the Bible, Part 1)

• So, how many of you tried some Bible reading this past week?

• How did it go?

• Which of the methods we talked about last week did you try?

• Which one(s) worked the best?

• Which one(s) was the hardest?

• If you struggled to read your Bible again this past week, what made it difficult? Honestly, what hindered you from studying the way you wanted to?Today, we want to go one step deeper into the pool of Bible study. Hopefully, with what we’ve talked about the past couple of weeks, getting into the Bible can become a spiritual habit you maintain for the rest of your life.

DIGGING IN (25 minutes)

Everyone turn to the New Testament book of 1 Timothy.


Read 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Those are two verses you’ve probably heard before. Most people reference them when they are trying to give evidence that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. However, we often miss what comes after that.The verse says that the Scriptures are profitable, useful, and good for stuff. Did you ever think about that? The Bible is not a collection of stories that are pointless. The verses we read don’t just apply to when they were written—they have a contemporary meaning as well.


Discussion Questions:

1. According to these verses, what are the Scriptures good for? (Teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness.)

2. What is the ultimate goal of this training, according to verse 17? (That we would be equipped to do good works.)


So, our study of Scripture should be focused on one thing—making a difference in our lives. We don’t read the Bible just because God said to, our preacher advised it, out of duty or obligation, or so we can check it off our list. The Bible should change us. Let's cover the purpose of reading and studying the Bible in more detail.


TEACHING (Doctrine)

The Bible is great for teaching us things. We should realize that there are limits on what it can teach us. If you want to know how many calories are in a cheeseburger or how far it is from Brazil to Switzerland, the Bible doesn’t have much to say. However, on the subjects the Bible teaches, there is an ample amount of helpful instruction.


Read Romans 15:4The Scriptures were written for this very purpose: they instruct us, thus giving us hope.


Discussion Question:

1. Can you think of a time when you were reading the Bible and you learned something new? What was it?


REBUKING (Reproof)

We don’t use this term a lot, but rebuking is a very spiritual idea. This word is used elsewhere in Scripture to describe the act of rebuking or reproofing someone. In the Old Testament, the word actually carries the idea of something being bitter. Sometimes, confrontation and rebuke can be bitter, but the word also carries the idea of improvement.The Scriptures aren’t written to offend us and make us angry, but to jolt us awake and cause our improvement. It’s not like the Bible is a self-help book, but when we come face to face with the Word of God, and take them to heart, we should change for the better.


Discussion Questions:

1. Can you think of a time when you read the Bible and felt rebuked?

2. Whether you liked it or not, did the outcome of this confrontation with God’s Word improve your life in some way?


CORRECTING (Correction)

This word carries a similar meaning as the one before it. Again, when we study the Bible and understand what it says, we may need to correct portions of our lives. The Word of God is not so plentiful that they should be taken for granted. When we come into contact with His instructions, we should be ready to be corrected.


Read Acts 2:36-37

This passage precedes the more popular Acts 2:38, where Peter instructs the people to be baptized. In these verses, though, we see correction first-hand.


Discussion Questions:

1. What is God's Word, through His servant Peter, in verse 36? (That Jesus is the Christ.)

2. How did this effect the people in verse 37? (They were “cut to the heart.”)

3. What did the people ask upon being convicted? (“What shall we do?”)


Every time we finish reading a Bible passage, we should ask ourselves, "What shall we do?"


TRAINING (Instruction)

2 Timothy 3:16 states that the final way the Bible helps is through training—specifically in righteousness.If you want to solve math problems, you study math. If you want to be an engineer, you go to a good engineering college. If you want to be great at a musical instrument, you train under a master musician.In the same way, if you want to know how to live a Godly life, you should study the Bible. Most of all, you should study the life of Jesus, the Master of it all.But it’s not all that easy. The word “training” can also be translated as “discipline.” You can’t skim the Bible once a day for a couple of minutes and expect to please God in all that you do. It takes training, discipline, and work.


Read Hebrews 12:11

Discussion Questions:

1. Does the idea of discipline in the Scriptures sound right to you? Why/why not?

2. In what ways has discipline gotten a bad rap in our world?


Discipline and training may not be fun at the time, but later we reap a great reward. This couldn’t be truer than with our relationship to God through our study of the Scriptures.


MAKING IT REAL (20 minutes)

So we can see that the Bible is good for something—lots of somethings, really. Before we finish up for today, I want to go back to the practice of applying what we study to our lives. How do we actually do that?


We pointed out a second ago that we should be like the listeners in Peter’s sermon, who asked, “What shall we do?”


I want to challenge you this week. As you read the Scriptures, ask yourself each time you finish a passage, “What shall I do?”


Maybe you read a Proverb every day last week. At the end of that exercise this week, ask yourself, “What do I need to do about what I just read?” Or maybe you wrote some verses down and put them on your mirror. You read them when you were getting ready for school. This week, when you’re done reading them, ask yourself, “How can I put this into practice TODAY?”


I want to practice this with you now so you know exactly what I mean. Hopefully, you’ll catch on fast and find it an easy alteration to your newly formed Bible study habits.


Workbook Activity (15 minutes)

What should I Do?

Find a passage of Scripture that you think your group would benefit from hearing. Maybe your group has struggled to be unified, or maybe they are struggling with something in particular like peer pressure, drunkenness, or gossip. Look up a scripture that would be helpful to them and give them time to read it on their own. If time permits, let your students find their own quiet place to complete this activity.


Ask them to read the passage 2-3 times and then, when they’re done, to write down in their workbooks, or on a piece of paper their answer to the question, “What should I do?” Give them a few minutes to do this on their own before you pull everyone back together. Then ask each student to share their response to the following questions:


• What was your idea of a task to complete after reading this passage?

• Was it hard to identify a take-away message like that? Why/why not?

• How do you see this as being difficult with other passages?

• How easily could you make the practice of asking "What should I do?" a Spiritual Habit in your life?


Remember ALL Scripture is helpful for one of those things. If some sort of take-away isn’t obvious, it may just be because you don’t understand that passage fully. Take your time, read it again and again. These insights don’t always come instantly. Ask advice from me or someone else you trust. Most people would love to help.

CLOSING PRAYER (5 minutes)

Pray that your students can implement this application process into their Bible study this week. Make sure next week to ask them how it went.
