A New Way to Read the Bible! 

What is SOAP?

SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application, and Prayer.  SOAP is a journaling method that helps us grow in God’s Word by recording our thoughts, emotions, and connections when Reading the bible.  We use the SOAP method, along with the SOAP reading schedule to help us in our journey to a better life found in Jesus Christ.

Scripture

Write down the portion of Scripture you will journal on. This is usually a short section that you have underlined or marked as you were reading.

Observation

Write down your thoughts and observations of the passage.

Application

Write down how you will apply this passage to your life today.

Prayer

Write down a prayer to God about your experience today.

How to use a SOAP Journal: 

Before you start, pray for God to show you how to apply the reading to your life today. Use the reading schedule to find today’s Scripture. Then begin reading today's scripture.  As you read, underline or write down anything that speaks to you as a personal word to be applied. When you read with an open heart, God will give you words of encouragement, direction, and correction. When you finish reading, use SOAP to write down how God’s word impacted you.
