Scripture, Observation, Application & Prayer
We want you to Find and Follow Jesus Christ. Finding Jesus is a milestone, but knowing Him is a journey and we are committed to help you follow Jesus fully. As we read the Bible, we begin to see how God responds to things. Doing daily devotions re-patterns the way we think, transforms the spirit of our mind, and helps us become more like Jesus! SOAP is an acronym: Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer. SOAP journaling is a simple and excellent way to both record and process what God has spoken to you. It’s also a useful tool to use later, when you want to reflect on what God has shown you!
Take your time reading each chapter and allow God to speak to you. Look for a verse that particularly spoke to you and write it in your journal.
What do you think God is saying to you in this scripture? Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you and reveal Jesus to you. Paraphrase and write this scripture down in your own words in your journal.
Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Write how this scripture can apply to you today.
This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this scripture, or it may be a greater insight on what He may be revealing to you. Remember, prayer is a two-way conversation, so be sure to listen to what God has to say and journal about it.
