Connecting to Jesus is something that we do corporately on Sunday mornings, Wednesday evenings, and in Life Groups, but that should not be the only time we are connecting with Jesus. We want you to connect to Jesus every day. That is why we started the SOAP Bible Engagement project.
To learn more about spiritual habits to help you grow in your relationship with Jesus take the BECOME course.
Dates the course is offered can by found on the events page.
SOAP Bible Engagement helps you connect with Scripture via a method and a plan.
SOAP is an acronym: Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer. This is a method for engaging with the Bible on a daily basis. You may find it helpful to also journal every day. Journaling is an excellent way to record and process what God has spoken to us. Without writing our experiences down, you may forget those blessings and some very important lessons!
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.
We have created custom Bible reading plans that will be released each month. Our plans are organized around a monthly theme and are on average 4-10 verses long. There are new readings each weekday to allow you time on the weekends to catch up or rest and reflect on what you have read. You can find the readings in our App (Bible Tab on Right then look for the calendar icon.
