S.O.A.P.S. Bible Reading
As a follower of Jesus, we should be reading Scripture daily. A good guideline is to read through a minimum of 25-35 chapters in the Bible each week. Keeping a daily journal daily using the S.O.A.P.S. Bible Reading format will help you understand, obey and share even more.
Here’s an example of S.O.A.P.S. at work:
S – “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9
O – As a human, I’m limited in what I know and what I know how to do. God is not limited in any way. He sees and knows EVERYTHING. He can do ANYTHING.
A – Since God knows everything and His ways are best, I’ll have much more success in life if I follow Him instead of relying on my own way of doing things.
P – Lord, I don’t know how to live a good life that pleases You and helps others. My ways lead to mistakes. My thoughts lead to hurt. Please teach me Your ways and Your thoughts, instead. Let your Holy Spirit guide me as I follow You.
S – I will share these verses and this application with my friend, Steve, who is going through a difficult time and needs direction for important decisions he’s facing.
In the comment section or in your own journal go ahead a start putting SOAPS into practice.
