Before you begin your study of the Word of God, take a few moments to make sure that you are in fellowship with God, filled with the Holy Spirit. Comprehension—like everything else in the Christian life—is a gift that can be appropriated only by faith. The Bible clearly lays out three requirements that must be met before we can expect to understand God’s Word. All three require nothing from us but faith. 1) We must be believers in Jesus Christ 1Co2:14; 2) We must be filled with the spirit 1Co2:12; and 3) We must approach in faith John 7:17.
