Are these similar reasons that people might not be very familiar with the Bible as they could be? Maybe it has been a while since they read it? Maybe they don’t pay as close attention to it? Or maybe they don’t read it very often?
While knowing the shapes of animal crackers is probably not very important, hopefully you see that being familiar with the Bible is a much more important thing!
2 Timothy 3:16-17 says: “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” (ESV)
Bible believing Christians have recognized the Bible as Scripture where we can learn and hear God’s Word. While one way to learn from the Bible is by studying it when we come together at church or youth group, we can become much more familiar with the Bible as we also study it personally on a regular basis.
I encourage you - and me - to spend time regularly to study the Bible. Don’t do it just because you feel guilty, or just to get it over with, or to try to make yourself feel better than other people, or to try to earn points. But do it to grow in knowing God, His truth, and to grow who He wants you to be and in your relationship with Him.
Maybe start in one of the Gospels - Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John. And maybe start with just 5-10 minutes a day (and perhaps that can grow over time). Pray, read a passage, think about what it means, look up or ask a more mature Christian about things you don’t understand, and pray for God’s help to apply what you learn to your life (whether it is something to obey, confess, believe, etc.)
If you’d like some more specific ideas for doing Bible study, ask a more mature Christian parent, friend, or leader for some ideas and resources!
