Don’t forget that the purpose of marking the text is to make you slow down as you read and to help you draw out the main idea of what you are reading. Too often we zip through a passage without really comprehending what it is saying. Get some colored pencils -or, better yet, these awesome pens from JetPens – and slow down as you read God’s Word. As you see repeated words or phrases, mark them in a distinctive way. And you will be on your way to studying the Bible inductively.
