Men's Journal Group (Wednesdays)
6:00am – 7:00am
Location: 6521 E State Rd 64, Bradenton, Florida 34208Category: Journal Group
Join us at Starbucks as we seek to grow deeper in our relationship with God
and with each other. We will be using the S.O.A.P method of reading / journaling our thoughts in regard to our weekly reading.
What is S.O.A.P.?
S.O.A.P. stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. It is a way of getting more out of your time in God’s word. We did not invent it; we just decided to use it as a model to help us in our study of God’s Word.
How does it work?
It’s quite simple. When you sit for your daily quiet time read the bible as you normally would with these thoughts in mind:
Read the scripture verse / verses assigned for that day (see the Bible Reading Schedule). While doing so ask the Holy Spirit to give you insight for that day’s reading.
What did you observe about the scripture that struck you. – write it out – this can be one sentence or a whole book. It is up to you – it is you putting into words what God’s Holy Spirit brought to your attention as your read the scripture verse / verses for the day.
How can you apply the observation so that it affects your life today. Ponder that question and then write down your thoughts on how you can apply your observation – how can you make it real in your life.
Write out a prayer to God based on what you just learned and ask him to help you apply this truth in your life.
Hope you join us; just show up.
