After I became a Christian, someone turned me on to looking for the 3 applications of every Scripture. Gave me focus. Helped me actually read the Bible. Changed my life.
What are the 3 applications of every verse/chapter/story in the Bible?
- Historical (John 5:46-47) — Agreeing that a passage is historically accurate (which grows your FAITH)
- Doctrinal/Prophetic (John 5:39) — Recognizing how a passage reveals who Christ is or what His Kingdom is all about (which grows your RELATIONSHIP)
- Inspirational/Personal (Mark 2:24-27) — Applying a passage to your personal life (which grows your CHARACTER)
I’m giving 7 examples in 7 days. Here’s my first example from Exodus 25:23-30.
- Historical — "God TOLD Moses to build a table for bread in the Holy Place of the Tabernacle."
- Doctrinal — "The table reveals who JESUS is…having 2 natures…carried by people…ready to meet with people in the Holy Place."
- Inspirational — "Jesus, help ME to meet You at the table of showbread in a greater way than every before."
