FAMILY DEVOTION

BIBLE FOCUS

Joshua 1:6-9

DISCOVERY POINT:

It’s easy to find things in the Bible.

KEY VERSE:

“Study this Book of Instruction continually.”

(Joshua 1:8a) 

How Do I Use the Bible?

GENESIS 1:1

Here’s the book…the chapter…the verse.

See? It’s the book of Genesis, chapter 1, verse 1. It’s kind of like each verse has its own address. Let’s try another one! Let’s look up a verse about when Jesus was born.

LUKE 2:7

Ok, first you find the book of Luke. Next, you need to find chapter 2. Finally, look in chapter 2 for the little number 7-that’s verse 7.

Now read it! See? You just found a verse that tells a very important part of the history of the world. Way to go! Just look for the bigger numbers.

Try looking up these verses!

JOHN 3:16

Write what you think this verse means:

1 CORINTHIANS 13:13

Write what you think this verse means:

DEUTERONOMY 6:5

Write what you think this verse means:

JEREMIAH 29:11

Write what you think this verse means:

Now, try looking these up on your own!

MATTHEW 28:5-7

Ha! Here’s a tricky one! When there’s a short line between the verse numbers, it means to read more than one verse. So here it means: Read verses 5 through 7.

Write what you think these verses mean:

MARK 2:23–3:6

Another tricky one? When you see a longer line between numbers, that means you should read from one chapter into another. So in this next one, you go from the book of Mark, chapter 2, verse 23, all the way to Mark, chapter 3, verse 6. Try it!

Write what you think this verse means:

FAMILY CHALLENGE:

Together as a family, talk about how to find Scripture passages in the Bible, and then look up the Scriptures on this page. Help family members take turns finding each passage. Talk about what each passage means.
