Grow in the word with us in 2021!
We are using the S.O.A.P. method of meeting with God and journaling your conversation through the Word:
How to meet with God using the SOAP Bible Study method:
Remember that these are conversations with God. Hebrews 4:12 says, "the word of God is living and active" - so we are hearing from God whenever we read His Word. Follow these simple steps in this conversation with God.
Begin with a time of prayer, where you ask God to speak to you through His word today. Ask the Holy Spirit to open your eyes (Psalm 119:18) so you can understand the Word and its application to you. (John 16:13)
S - SCRIPTURE - Read the passage and find one verse or paragraph that stands out to you. Write that passage down by the "S" in your journal.
O - OBSERVATION - Study what that passage means in its context as written by God's author to His people. Write down your observations by the "O" in your journal.
A - APPLICATION - Ask the question,"How does this passage apply to my life today?" Write down the application to your heart by the "A" in your journal.
P - PRAYER - Here is where you respond to God: Pray back to God what He has said to you in a response. Then, write down that prayer or a summary of it beside the "P" in your journal.
