Sacred writings, specifically the Bible, believed to be "God-breathed" and divinely inspired. Scripture serves as the authoritative foundation for Christian theology, moral principles, and spiritual guidance, emphasizing their origin as not merely human constructs but revelations from God.

4 ways to Practice Scripture


Bible Reading and Memorization

  • Read one of the four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John.
  • Read the entire Bible/read the Bible every day.
  • Read every day with the Bridge’s Daily Bible Reading Plan.
  • Read an entire book of the Bible in one sitting.
  • Memorize a verse or passage of the Bible and keep it memorized (try to do multiple).


Journaling & Reflection

  • Journal through your Bible reading (if you don’t know how to, look up the SOAP method).
  • Meditate on the Bible passage you are reading. Read it over and over again to get a basic understanding, to think how it applies to you, and to listen for the Spirit’s guidance.
  • As you read, ask God to reveal one way this applies to you and be obedient.


Bible Study & Research

  • Outline a book of the Bible by writing out themes, keywords, and a summary.
  • Do an inductive bible study on a book of your choice or join an inductive group study.
  • Research the passage you are reading using a commentary, concordance, or study Bible- look for cultural, historical, contextual, or theological pieces you may have missed.


Applying Scripture to Daily Life

  • Filter your news, social media feeds, etc. through the lens of Scripture. Take confusing, evil, or overwhelming things you hear to the Bible to process through them.
  • Try to incorporate biblical principles or verses into your daily conversations. This can help you and others to see situations from a biblical perspective.
  • When faced with decisions, big or small, seek guidance from the Scriptures. Reflect on relevant passages that can provide wisdom and direction.
