HOW DO I S.O.A.P.?
Do you practice the daily discipline of reading God's Word? Not only are we hopeful you are finding that quality time with the Lord, we have a journaling tool that will help you make the most of it. Connect Church has adopted a great way for you to observe and apply what you are reading daily in a way that can change your life and magnify your reading time. The following are the general instructions for doing your daily S.O.A.P. journaling.
Read the passage of Scripture for the day and allow God to speak to you. Look for a verse that spoke to you. Write it down.
Write your observation as to what is happening in the text. What do you believe is the point of the passage?
Ask yourself how this Scripture applies to your life right now. Write down how is can it apply to you today.
This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this Scripture, or even a prayer for 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! Now, write it out.
You can now get connected weekly in a men's, women's or couple's Connection Group to share the passage together. Join us on the Royal Palm campus Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM or any of our Connection Groups throughout the week.
