SOAP is a method of reading scriptures from the Holy Bible, and applying to your life. Spending time in the Bible, thinking about what it says, and praying to God about how He can help you in your family, and other relationships, is a healthy daily habit.
Here's how it works:
1. Pick a few friends or family members to join.
2. Pick/create a daily reading plan & share it with your group.
3. Each person spend daily time in God's word using SOAP.
Read God’s word slowly and thoughtfully
Reread the passage again, aloud. You may even use different translations. Write it down any words, phrases or verses that stand out.
What does the passage say about God?
What does the passage say about people?
What does the passage say about obedience? (a sin to repent of, a promise to believe, an example to follow, a command to obey?
I Will -What is God calling you to do in response to the scripture?
Share – Who needs to hear this?
Thank Him for His love and instruction. Ask God to help you hide His word In your heart and to help you have wisdom, strength, and courage an obey.
4. Meet weekly with your group. Take turns sharing what God has done throughout the week in daily time in God's word and prayer. God will do great things in you, your family and other relationships as you spend time in God’s word together.
