Before you start playing using the pens, it’s best to read through the entire passage and absorb the meaning. After that, you can begin marking and color coding various themes. If the entire section is a prayer, it might be beneficial to draw a line around it using your preferred color rather than highlight every word, since you might discover other themes in the prayer you wish to emphasize.
When you go through the story again, think about questions such as “Who’s the main character in this tale? What does it tell us about God? Does it have something to say about the way I should or should not be living my life What do you think?. These kinds of questions help me identify what I’d like to draw attention to.
Then look for words that have been repeated, different themes (like actions that occur without Christ as well as with Christ), and words that connect.
At this point, you should be aware of the primary point that the author is trying to convey. Note it down and read through the passage with your newfound knowledge in mind. You might notice different themes and patterns.
By following this method, you’ll go deeper into the Scriptures and perhaps discover an undiscovered treasure that you never noticed before!
