Sunday 1/21/24 Recap: SOAP Journals

Beyond: The Bible

  • the Bible should give us a bigger heart, not a bigger head

  • You can't do the will of God if you don't know the word of God


Spend time in God's living word:

  1. Choose a Bible translation you understand (NIV, ESV, NLT - ask Pastor Scott for additional information regarding translations)

  2. Pick a time and place to spend time in His word

  3. Understand the context (Who wrote it? To whom was it written? What was the purpose?)

  4. Read slowly and ask questions

  5. Pray for God to speak to you through His scriptures

  6. Start with a book of the Bible, a person in the Bible or a topic

Wanting to know about God? Read Genesis or Exodus

Wanting to know about Jesus? Read the gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John

Dealing with a difficult person; looking for help managing your money; looking for practical insight in daily living? Read Proverbs

Are you hurting or in pain? Read Psalms

Want to learn about sin and forgiveness? Romans
