Why we S.o.a.p?

At First LG, we believe meeting with Jesus everyday is a crucial part of being an "All-In" follower of Jesus.

As we read, we're transformed... Becoming more like Jesus in all we do & say!

Our calling is to change the world & be His light...

In order to do so, we must first know Him & have a relationship with Him!


S.O.A.P. journaling is a simple & excellent way to both record & process what the Lord is speaking to you.


Follow along with our Bible Reading Plan -- available in the lobby & below.

Also, we would love to teach you how to S.O.A.P...


how to S.O.A.P.

SCRIPTURE

Open your Bible to today's reading.  Take time reading & allow God to speak to you. When you are done, look for a verse that particularly spoke to you & write it in your journal.  


OBSERVATION

What struck you & caught your attention?  What do you think God is saying to you in this scripture?  Paraphrase & write this scripture down in your own words. 


APPLICATION

Personalize what you have read by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now.  Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, a new promise, or correction for a particular area of your life.  Write how this scripture applies to you today.


PRAYER

This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this scripture, or it may be 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!


The most important part... your interaction with God's Word & your application of His Word to your life!
