At The Rock Church we believe that the Word of God is the bread and breath of Life! As disciples of Jesus Christ we need the Word daily in the very same way that we need air and water. It may sound overly simplistic, however until you have tried reading throughout the bible in a daily and systematic way, you will never know the life giving power that comes from God's Word.

For 2017 we're introducing a new 5-Day Reading Plan that will take you through the whole Bible in one year. With the 5-Day Plan you read Monday to Friday the readings that are listed and then you have the weekend to catch up if you have fallen (and you will) behind. Life is busy and often we start out with great intentions of sticking with a Bible reading plan but once we fall behind we give up. With the 5-Day Plan there is time to catch up.

To get more out of your daily readings try journaling using the SOAP Method. Check out this outline for the SOAP Method.

TRY THE SOAP METHOD

S.O.A.P stands for Scripture, Observation, Application, and Prayer. It is a way of getting more out of your time in God's Word.

Scripture

Open your Bible to the reading found under today’s date of the reading program.  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.

Observation

What is God 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.

Application

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

Prayer

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!  Now write it out.
