In Living by the Book (amazon affiliate link) by Howard Hendricks and William Hendricks, they emphasize bombarding the text you read with questions. This is a good approach when you are making OBSERVATIONS, but it is also true when it comes to your APPLICATION.
Here are 9 Application Questions you can ask whenever you come to the Word:
- Is there an example for me to follow?
- Is there a sin to avoid?
- Is there a promise to claim?
- Is there a prayer to repeat?
- Is there a command to obey?
- Is there a condition to meet?
- Is there a verse to memorize?
- Is there an error to mark?
- Is there a challenge to face?
