At Element Church we desire that everyone would hear from God daily through the Bible! SOAP gives us a shared method of engaging the Bible and applying what we read in a practical way. As a result we believe God will re-pattern how we think, transform our hearts, and help us become more like Jesus!

 

SOAP Bible Reading Method

  • Scripture | Read a passage of scripture and write down a verse or two that jumps out to you.
  • Observation | What is the context and main observations that you note from this scripture? What did the original author intend to say to the original audience?
  • Application | How does it now apply to your every day life?
  • Prayer | Write a personal prayer based on your observation/application and talk to God.
