We anticipate God to move like never before this April. As a church we are fasting, praying, and reading throught the book of John together. We encourage and challenge you to join with us! Let us know what you're learning each day by joining the conversation on our FACEBOOK PAGE or by tweeting on Twitter using the hashtage #RELATESOAP.
DAILY BIBLE + PRAYER TIME:
We are reading one chapter of the Book of John daily, beginning on April 3. The reading plan is as follows:
April 3 John 1 April 4 John 2 April 5 John 3 April 6 John 4 April 7 John 5 April 8 John 6
April 9 John 7 April 10 John 8 April 11 John 9 April 12 John 10 April 13 John 11 April 14 John 12
April 16 John 14 April 17 John 15 April 18 John 16 April 19 John 17 April 20 John 18 April 21 April 19
April 22 John 20 April 23 John 21
One great way to make daily Bible reading + meditation a daily practice is to use the SOAP method:
Scripture (Read the Bible Passage)
Observation (Write down what this scripture says to you)
Application ( Write down how it applies to your life)
Prayer (Spend time talking to God and listening to what He has to say to you)
We'd also encourage you to consider fasting for these 21 days. You may choose to fast food, junk food, social media, television... Ask God to show you. Fasting is the practise of putting God before other natural hungers. It doesn't change God, but it confirms and strengthens our heart towards Him.
Mt 6:33 "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."
Mt 5:6 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled."
We'd love to know what you're learning, how you're growing... And let us know if you have any questions!
