The Bible is God’s inspired word. It reveals the truth of who God is and the purpose He created us for. Devotion to the Bible is vital to the life of a believer and will lead us into a deep relationship with our Savior. Whether you’re new to faith, exploring faith, or have been following Jesus for years, we encourage everyone to use the SOAP daily devotional process to help you experience the power of the Bible Each day. SOAP is a simple acronym that will help you focus on Scripture and discover the truth within its pages. 

SCRIPTURE

Take time each day reading your Bible and allow God to speak to you. Look for a verse that particularly spoke to you and write it in your journal. If you’re new to faith, the four Gospels are a great place to begin.

OBSERVATION

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 a journal. Journaling is a tremendous tool as you grow in your devotional life.

APPLICATION

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.

PRAYER

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

PROVERB OF THE DAY

We encourage everyone to read one chapter of the Book of Proverbs each day. There are 31 chapters in proverbs, one for each day of the month. Proverbs is an incredibly practical book that takes the big concepts of the Bible and shows us how they look in our day to day lives.
