How a 70 year old guy who’s been in ministry 40 years reads the Bible

I’m reading the book Leaders Who Last by Dave Kraft. It’s a very simple book on leadership but one with great insight from one with seasoned experience. Dave served with the Navs for 38 years and is now the leadership development pastor at Mars Hill Church (Mark Driscoll’s church).

I loved his simple reminder on how to read the Bible. I quote it from page 33.

  1. Read. Reading and marking the words and verses that speak to me.
  2. Reflect. Thinking about what I have marked.
  3. Respond. Focusing on truths I marked to pray about and obey.
  4. Record. Capturing what God has said in writing (a journal).

What ways have helped you in reading the Bible?
