Last week we announced our new Fall On-line Bible Study in the book of I John.
For those of you who have printed out the free reading plan here is what you will do beginning Monday, September 19th.
Get your Bible and a fresh journal. Read the passage of scripture for the day and apply the SOAP method. Here is what SOAP stands for:
1. S- Write out the scripture passage for the day.
2. O- Write down 1 or 2 observations from the passage.
3. A- Write down 1-2 applications from the passage.
4. P- Pray over what you learned from today’s passage.
By the end of the 12 weeks, you will have written out the entire book of I John in your journal. You will have meditated on every single verse in I John as you have written it out and pondered each verse bit by bit. Doesn’t that excite you to know God’s word this well!!! It really excites me!
When you come to a passage that you do not understand, I recommend Crosswalk’s Bible Study Tools found here:http://www.biblestudytools.com/ On this page in the lower right hand corner, you can find links to Bible dictionaries, commentaries, concordances, and other Bible translations, etc. I have been using this website for 8 years! I LOVE it!
I recommend Matthew Henry’s Commentary’s found here for gaining more background understanding to the passage we are SOAPing.
Our Web Schedule:
Angela is on maternity leave for the first month of this session - but when she returns – on Mondays she will be kicking off our week in God’s word. Wednesdays are feedback day – we hope you will share what you are learning in the comments section and visit the bloggers in our Women In The Word Wednesdays Blog Hop. On Fridays, I will be posting one-minute videos that correlatate with our study for the week.
We look forward to taking this journey with you!
We can’t wait for September 15th to begin! Please spread the word and this link to your friends! Invite them to join us!
Walk with the King!
