As we start a new year, I thought we’d kick it off by sharing with you a simple tool to help you grow as a disciple and a disciple maker. I’m borrowing this from our friends at www.moredisciples.com, who borrowed it from someone else, and it goes by the acronym “SOAPs.”
- S – Scripture: Choose 1 to 4 focus verses and write them out word for word.
- O – Own: Now paraphrase the focus verses in your own words.
- A – Apply: Ask God how He wants you to apply any truths in the focus verses in your life today
- P – Pray: Pray that the Lord will give you strength, courage and boldness to put these truths into practice today.
- s – Share: Share these focus verses and the lessons you’ve drawn from them with someone you meet today.
It’s easy and practical, but also deepens your time in Scripture in a great way. Why not commit to doing your SOAPs for the next 14 days, and see what God does?
