Here is a really good acrostic to remember while reading the Bible. These questions can help us slow down, think about what we are reading, consider our heart and respond.
S – Sin to confess? Do I need to make any restitution?
P – Promise to claim? Is there a universal promise? Have I met the conditions?
A – Attitude to change? Am I willing to work on a negative attitude and begin building toward a positive one?
C – Command to obey? Am I willing to do it no matter how I feel?
E – Example to follow? Is it a positive example for me to copy, or a negative one to avoid?
P – Prayer to pray? Is there anything I need to pray back to God?
E – Error to avoid? Is there any problem that I should be alert to or beware of?
T – Truth to believe? What new things can I learn about God the Father, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, or other biblical teachings?
S – Something to praise God for? Is there something here I can be thankful for?
