Before we begin, 2 common observations to consider:
I feel like something is missing
Look up the Book of Romans in the New Testament, chapter 1, and read verses 18-20. There you’ll find the evidence of God is inherent within each of us. And when we don’t understand, choose to ignore or reject that evidence, it feels like a hole in our lives. Blaise Pascal, a famous French mathematician and believer in Jesus, described this as a “God shaped hole in each of our lives that only Jesus can fill.”
I want to understand the Bible, but I don’t
Look up 1 Corinthians, chapter 2 and read verses 11-16. There you’ll see the Bible is God’s book and no one knows it or understands it like Him. Ask God to help you understand what He wants you to know.
