Over the past several days, I wrote several posts about questions to ask to help with meditating on and praying Scripture. Ultimately, these questions help us to aid in heart-level application of Scripture. This is the only kind of application that will have lasting value. Now, these questions are not the only ones we should ask, but they are important ones. For quick reference, here are the links to those posts with a brief summary.
- Moving from Reading to Relating. Asking questions to help get us from information to life transformation.
- Law and Gospel: Four Questions. Asking questions to help us feel the weight of the law and the grace we see and receive in the gospel.
- Jesus, the Greater Satisfaction. Asking questions to help us identify heart-idols and cultivate repentance and faith in Jesus as our supreme delight.
- From General Principles to Christ’s Fulfillment. Asking questions to help us identify a principle in the text, seeing how it is fully accomplished in Jesus, and then moving toward understanding how I am empowered by God to walk in obedience.
