Life Devotional Groups
Life Devotional Groups consists of people who meet to read the Bible together, write in their journals using the SOAP method, and share their devotions.
S - CRIPTURE
Take time reading and allow God to speak to you. When you are done, look for a verse that particularly spoke to you that day, and write it in your journal.
O - BSERVATION
What do you think God is saying to you in this scripture? Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you and reveal Jesus to you. Paraphrase and write this Scripture down in your own words in your journal.
A - pplication
Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, revelation of a new promise, or corrections for a particular area of your life. Write how this Scripture can apply to you today.
P - rayer
This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this Scripture, or it may be a 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!
"How will I be different today because of what I have just read?"
Using the 20/20/20 method helps to keep the group at a good pace, 20 minutes reading, 20 minutes writing, 20 minutes sharing and closing in prayer.
