Ok, so I have grown up in a Christian home and Bible believing Church…Here’s my story. I have always been taught what is right and good and I have always been surrounded by loving people that love the Lord. I have great friends and I love them to death but being friends with them has stirred conviction in my heart. I feel so stupid in my lack of knowledge of the Bible I am saved and that is great but here’s the problem. They know a lot more about the Bible than I do and are always talking about different Bible stories, now I can pick up on what story they’re talking about and follow for the most part. The thing is they just remember all the details and I feel bad that I don’t know those details. I feel that as a child of the King I should know everything in the Bible. It seems that my friends do and I just don’t know what to do.

Please help and suggest how to get through this I’m lost and praying. I feel bad and don’t know what to do If you have any advice on how to remember the details or anything please comment!!!

Your Sister in Christ,
Ruth

Hey, girl!
Sounds like you’re going through what I went through a while back.
I wanna start off by saying that your friends DO NOT know everything about the Bible. As Christians we are always growing in our relationship with the Lord and it never stops, if it did we would get bored and think we don’t need Him anymore. God is so awesome and we can never fully experience or know His word. A lot of people know a lot about the Bible, even atheist study it but it doesn’t make them Christians. We need to be more concerned about our relationship with God and getting to know Him (through the bible and prayer) and Bible knowledge will come along with it. Don’t be so worried about “knowing all the facts” and study His word to get to know Him.

Some tips that helped me personally:
– Read His word and pray first! Ask Him to help you to be still and listen to what He has to say to you and that you would be receptive to His teaching.
– Take notes. Right down your favorite verses, prayer requests, or anything the Lord puts on your heart.
– Get involved in a Bible study!! This was such a huge turning point for me because it forced me to study the Bible and have my answers filled out for our next meeting. It made me engage in spiritual conversations with sisters in Christ whom I know and love and really helped to strengthen me!

To quote my mom (she might have quoted this from someone els though, I’m not sure. Haha!) “Prayer is our way of speaking to God, reading the Bible is His way of speaking to us”

Hope this helped! Let me know if you have anymore questions.
Love, E
