SOAP Bible Reading Method

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!

S cripture | Read a passage of scripture and listen for God’s leading
O bservation | What is the context and original intent of this scripture?
A pplication | How does the original intent apply to your every day life today?
P rayer | Write a personal prayer based on your observation and talk to God.

We all read the same chapter from the Bible each day.
We will all read through the Bible every 3 years.
We can all talk about how the Bible is impacting us together.
