How Can We Understand the Bible?

Study earnestly to present yourself approved to God, a workman that does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth. (2 Timothy 2:15 MKJV)

What does the Bible tell us to do to understand truth?  We are to study earnestly.  We are to apply what we learn to our life and walk according to what the Bible says.  Our life will be a testimony to God’s word living in us.  Study scripture comparing it with what the Bible says about that topic.  Sometimes we can read one verse and get a false understanding if we don’t compare it with the rest of the Bible.  I have heard people say that the Bible contradicts itself.  The Bible does not contradict itself, we misunderstand what it is saying.  The Bible does not contradict itself when you compare scripture with scripture and get the big picture.  It is important that you study to know God’s Word.  Do not rely on what someone says.  Test what they say against what the Bible says.
