By taking these tips into consideration, you can better determine what online Bible study program will be the best for you and your season of life.

How to Engage Effectively with Your Online Bible Study

Active Note-Taking

It’s vital to not just passively consume information, but actively take notes as you go.

Whether you use a pen and paper, or you prefer taking notes digitally, be sure to write down what you learn.

The habit of active notetaking reinforces what you learn and creates a log of information to return to as you continue deepening your understanding of the Bible.

Application to Your Life

As you engage with an online Bible study, it’s important to ask the Spirit of God to show you how to apply what you’re learning to your life.

Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you how you can begin living out what you’re learning today.

This practice helps to bridge the gap between simply learning information and applying it for transformation in your life.

Assessment and Reflection

Be sure to set aside time to review what you’ve learned.

This might look like reviewing your notes, reflecting on how you’ve applied the information during the week, or even teaching the material to someone else.

Reviewing your material and reflecting on it is a great way to reinforce what you’re learning during your online Bible study.
