Studying the Bible starts with reading the Bible or at least it does for me and maybe you too.
We may want to think of the Bible as an eight-course meal or an all you can eat buffet, in both cases the experience is richer if we eat the entire meal.

Dear Lord, Thank You for all the many ways you have provided for us to worship you. Please forgive us for our continual disregard for the time you have blessed us with.

Tagline

Yesterday, through the mighty word of God, He blessed us with a tagline for this Key Word Bible Study thing! And our tagline is ... She planted a vineyard. Is this not the most awesome plus beautiful thing you've ever heard of? It may not be for you but it is for me! I just adore the thought of His words of truth planted deeply in our hearts. Like the one in the photo above! He will not cast out those who come to him!

NIV:
All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.
ESV
All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out.
CSB
Everyone the Father gives me will come to me, and the one who comes to me I will never cast out.

African-Americans {Black People} are more engaged with the Bible than any other group

Image
PHILADELPHIA, July 11, 2017—The results of the latest State of the Bible survey by American Bible Society showed African-Americans are more engaged with the Bible than any other group, overwhelmingly citing positive beliefs and hope found in the Scriptures. Among African-Americans, 71 percent are considered Bible engagedi or Bible friendlyii (compared to just 58 percent of all Americans). A small segment of African-Americans, just six percent, have hostileiii feelings toward the Bible; only four percent are skepticaliv; and 19 percent are neutralv. When asked if the Bible contains everything a person needs to know to live a meaningful life, 77 percent agreed that it does. And while all Americans believe morality is on the decline (81 percent), 35 percent of African-Americans blame the decline on lack of Bible reading. When African-Americans sit down to read the Bible, 29 percent read it for an hour or more—the leading timeframe for this category. Many cited feeling encouraged (51 perc…
