I shared with some friends over the summer that I had begun copying Scripture as part of my daily Bible study. I am still doing that. So far I have copied Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Timothy. I began Titus yesterday. I did take a short break from copying when I began working in a topical Bible study book that I bought. But after one lesson in that book, I got back to my copying. For now, this is what I want to do.
Copying Scripture may not be for everyone. But if it sounds beneficial to you, I encourage you to try it. I have a pretty pink leather journal that I am using for this. I also use a Frixion erasable pen, because inevitably, I make a mistake here and there. I love those pens! Staples sells them in black, red, and blue, but Amazon sells a multi-color pack (my favorite).
I try to copy the amount of Scripture that equals one page in my journal each day. I write only on one side of each page, the right hand side of the book. At the end of each chapter, I outline the chapter on the first blank left hand side page. I use the other blank left hand side pages for copying (again) specific verses that I want to comment on. I also make notes about certain verses on these blank left hand side pages. Does that make sense?
I read the chapter in its entirety before I begin copying each day and also one more time when I finish copying the chapter.
As many of you know, I am also a fan of reading the Bible cover to cover. Seeing and understanding the big picture of the entire Bible has innumerable benefits. I am not reading it in 90 days this time, but I am reading whenever I have a spare minute, using my iPad. I hope to finish this Bible reading by January or February. During these Bible reading sessions, I do not take any notes or copy any Scriptures, I just read.
Whatever your Bible reading/studying plan is, I encourage you to just do it.
