How Should I Apply Scripture?

In The Spirit's divine work of carrying men along as they spoke from God in writing Scripture, we mustn't forget an important aspect of Bible reading and studying. Every book has a specific readership who heard the writings of that specific author first. And because this is true, there are some things that the author is trying to communicate directly to that audience that would impact the way they lived their lives and the things that they believed about God. So, before we can accurately make an application of a text we read, to our own lives, we must first honor the author's goal in writing, learn about the original audience who was on the receiving end and see what the text is overall communicating about the triune God.
