The Cornerstone Plan

Jesus Christ is the Chief Cornerstone that the builders rejected. Building your life on Him with the foundation of the Apostles and the Prophets changes everything. We will walk you through the "3 A Day" plan and help you get in the rhythm of regular bible reading with a simple walk through the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and a chapter a day from the Apostles from Acts to Revelation, and a chapter a day from Genesis to Job. The "4 A day" adds another chapter from the Prophets in the Old Testament from Psalms to Malachi. Try the "3 A Day" with a daily S.O.A.P.S. Reading your bible and doing a daily S.O.A.P.S. everyday you will begin to see God change your life from the inside out. It's really simple to get started. 

Here is a brief summary of how to do your daily S.O.A.P.S.   

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 25-30 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. 

S.O.A.P.S. is: 

  • Scripture: Write out one or more verses that are particularly meaningful to you, today. 
     
  • Observation: Rewrite those verses or key points in your own words to better understand.
     
  • Application: Think about what it means to obey these commands in your own life.  
     
  • Prayer: Write out a prayer telling God what you’ve learned and how you plan to obey. 
     
  • Sharing: Ask God who He wants you to share with about what you’ve learned / applied. You can make or choose a verse image to share with your daily SOAPS. 
     

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.
