I’m on the hunt to give 7 examples in 7 days of the 3 Applications of Scripture. My goal is to try to help people learn to enjoy reading the Bible themselves and get something out of it.
I’m having people read a passage themselves and take a shot at writing 1 sentence for each of the 3 Applications first. Then they can compare their answers to my (imperfect) examples.
Here’s my second example. First, read 1 Corinthians 10:1-6. Then, check out my examples.
- Historical — "Paul was writing the church at Corinth about how Israel’s failures in the wilderness applied to them."
- Doctrinal — "The rock that Israel drank from in the desert teaches us about Jesus, Who fulfills all of people’s desires."
- Inspirational — "God, would you help me to not to lust after evil things in my life as Israel did?"
If you are interested in trying it again tomorrow, try reading Psalm 1.
