40 Days in the Word – Probe It!

Christian meditation means thinking about Scripture. You meditate on Scripture in the same way a cow chews her cud — by chewing on it and chewing on it and chewing on it. The “probe-it” method of Bible study is a great way to do that. When you use that method, you probe the text with questions, almost like a jackhammer. To help you do that, you will receive one of the strangest acrostics ever used: SPACEPETS. Each letter in the acrostic is the first letter of a key word of a question you ask of God’s Word. Probe It this week.
