THE SPECK METHOD
It is important to continue to dig into Scripture on your own past the Sunday service. Below is an inductive Bible study method called the SPECK method. This is to encourage and help you better comprehend and understand the truth and application of scripture in your life. We want to appropriately observe, interpret, and apply God’s Word.
Sins to Avoid
Make a list of any sins – wrong actions, attitudes or thoughts – mentioned in the passage. These are the things to avoid in your life.
Promises to Claim
Make a list of all the promises in this passage. Promises give us confidence when we doubt God or face difficult times. So take them to heart and believe what they say.
Examples to Follow
What examples do you find in the passage? Is there a right way of thinking or acting described in the passage that you should take as an example for your life? Write it down.
Commands to Obey
Write out all the commands you find. If a passage encourages you to take a certain action, take it as a command and write it down.
Knowledge of God to Apply
What does the passage teach you about God? How do these truths about God apply to your daily life of faith? God’s character shines throughout the Bible as an example for us.
