Dig Deeper with Purpose and #TuesTalk

Dig Deeper Logo

Who has the time to do in-depth Bible study with little ones running around? Not me! Ugh, I struggle with finding the enough time and energy to engage with scripture, not just read it.

I’ve spent the past few weeks creating a special PDF just for you! You can print them out and put them in your journaling Bible or just keep as bookmarks.  Hopefully these little cards will remind you to read with purpose, perspective, process, and prayer.

Today, let’s dig deeper into reading the Bible with Purpose!

The purpose of the Bible is to tell a story. A story repeated in each poem, prose, narrative, and even in the history of Israel. We see the themes of Creation // Fall // Redemption // Restoration throughout scripture.

Before you begin, write out on your {{FREE}} printable what each of these phrases mean, to be able to reference back as you study.

Use whatever passage you are reading in your Bible right now to answer the following questions. {And if you don’t have a current reading place, let’s start with the book of I John!} Start in chapter one:

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life— the life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us— that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. And we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.

This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

Pick up your Bible and read through a few verses (or an entire chapter would be better). Ask yourself: How does this passage fit into the big story of the Bible? Does it speak about creation, fall, redemption, or restoration? Chances are, you will find your passage will contain more than one general purpose. Remember, all of scripture is telling ONE story: Our God created us, but because of sin, He has sent a Savior to restore us!

Print this {{FREE}} printable, cut out the cards, color them, and stick them in your Bible as reminders to read with PURPOSE! You can use the pictures and different fonts to cut out and place in your Bible. It doesn’t matter if you have a journaling Bible or not. You can use the questions as reminders to look for PURPOSE when you read each and everyday!

  1. I honor your commitment to studying, even though there are little people around your feet. Those little ones are seeing the example of a godly mum who is hungry for the Word and making it a priority! What a gift to them!

  2. Visiting from RaRa link-up, love what you are doing here. I am not a young mom, all my babies grown, but so glad you are reaching mommas, so important.

  3. Although it’s been a long time ago, I remember the days with little ones and trying to find time for Bible study. But those precious years go so fast. First they will all be in school, so a little extra time for you. Then they are grown and you have an empty nest with lots of time for you! Enjoy these precious years with your little ones.
    Now retired, Ican attend more Bible study at my church. I also enjoy Focus 15 studies with Katie Orr. Easy to do quickly except for those days when she has us studying Greek and Hebrew! Ha! I also very much enjoy reading your blog.
