What is S.O.A.P.?
S.O.A.P. stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. It is a way of getting more out of your time in the bible. Open Life did not invent it, we just decided to use it for this reading plan to help you get the most from your experience through Romans.
How does it work?
It’s quite simple. When you sit for your daily reading time you can underline or make note of any verses that jump out at you with special significance. This is the basis for diving deeper and using S.O.A.P.
You’ve finished this step already…it’s where you focus on the scripture that impacts you the most.
What did you observe about the scripture that struck you. This can be one sentence or a whole book.
How can you apply the observation so that it affects your life today.
Write out a prayer to God based on what you just learned and ask him to help you apply this truth in your life. Thats all there is to it! Are you ready to get started?
