Simply Blessed was born out of a local church’s discipling culture that recognized a need to assist believers in further developing personal Bible study skills. After years of development, the first edition of Simply Blessed was produced in 2018 to equip believers in this important discipline. As it was used by groups and individuals, feedback poured in, and many helpful revisions were made.
In 2022, the study was revised and updated to create this current version. While the core concept (Truth, Principle, Application) is still the same, the presentation of the material is significantly improved. It includes clearer step-by-step instructions, enhanced explanations of the observation and interpretation process, diagrams that visually express the organizational structure of the paragraph, an organizational worksheet, and an updated self-study section. This edition has proved itself to be a more user-friendly discipleship tool that equips saints in studying and understanding God’s Word personally.
