How Quickly to Find Scriptures in Books of the Bible While in Church Service

Updated on January 22, 2016

Train By Reading a Segment of the Bible Everyday

In order to get more familiar with the Bible we should read it at least once per day. You will be amazed at the many discoveries. The knowledge to be gained is invaluable. Too many people take the Bible for granted. It is not to be taken that way at all. It is the biggest selling book in history all over the world. The only problem is people may start living by it but have a tendency to fall off or and some people just do not live by it even though they may know it very well.

Being Led to Read the Bible

I had tried desperately for years to learn how to find books of the Bible so that when I was in any church service and the congregation was called on to look up a Bible passage then I could flip to the book, then to the chapter and on to the verse or verses.

Chicago is a Diversified City of Worshipers


Our Daily Bread

It was not until I started reading a small magazine, everyday and published out of the state of Michigan that started me to look up scriptures that went with the daily story of the magazine.

You may be familiar with the magazine or have seen it laying around in hospitals, nursing homes, churches and etc. It is a phenomenal book. The numerous writers of it tell some very inspiring stories and quote some scriptures within it but there is one main scripture that goes with each story and after reading the story, there is a scripture reading of the Bible book, chapter and a verse or a few that goes with the story. It does not take long to read from the story to the last verse. It make take fifteen to twenty minutes. What may you get out of this reading? Inspiration, motivation and where the book of the Bible is. As you are searching for the book you will notice where other books are. After a while of reading daily you will eventually notice what books are in the Old Testament from the ones in the New Testament.

It will all become so amazing.

You May Get Spiritually Drawn In

As you read the stories, the scriptures and have a tendency to apply what you read to your life, you may get spiritually drawn in by the spirit that you have needed all along your lifetime. You may get captivated and desire to have a closer walk with the Lord. Nothing is wrong with that. That would be a greater enhancement to your life.

It Is Easy To Get This Book and It’s Free

You can subscribe to this book by mail. If you read the actual book then it is better to have a Bible handy so that after reading the story, you may flip through the Bible to the book and scripture that the story pertains to. Of course, they would like a donation even as little as five dollars. It is more feasible to read it online because you will have the Daily Bread story and the click on the scripture link to go to. Online they have a picture that reflects what the story is about as well. Either way you choose it makes for wholesome, daily reading. It is good to take the book in your daily travels. It always comes in handy. Whatever way it takes to learn the placement of the books of the Bible is a sure good thing.

      Your article is a good promo for "Our Daily Bread." I have subscribed to it in the past and found it very useful. I agree with Blossom's suggestion of memorizing the order of the Bible books or referencing the order as on Dana's bookmark. It helps to know them in the church service.

      I love reading "Our Daily Bread" There's a church that gives them out free and I always pick up the newest one. I received a book mark for my bible which had the old and new testaments in order. So this is how I learned to find the books quickly. Before that no matter how hard I studied, sometimes I wouldn't find the scripture until the pastor started preaching. In answer to your question. I do think the Daily Bread" is a good way to learn the books more quickly.

      I used to use 'Our Daily Bread', too. It's a great little booklet and gives good guidance. Some other good ways of finding the Scripture you need quickly is to memorise the books of the Bible, or to have those tags that can be stuck on the beginning of each Book. An interesting hub.
