S.O.A.P. Bible Study
S.O.A.P. stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer.
It's a way of getting more out of your time in God's word. We didn't invent it,
we just think it's super helpful!
How does it work?
It's pretty simple! As you spend time reading the Bible, write down an S, O, A, and P on the left hand side of your page.
Then, as you read through the Scripture, follow these steps:
Open your Bible to your reading for the day. Take time reading and allow God to speak to you. When you are done, look for a verse that particularly spoke to you that day, 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.
Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, a new promise, or corrections for a particular area of your life. Write how this scripture can 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.
