Going Deeper to Go Further
In order to go further in the mission God has given us, He said we need to go deeper in our relationship with Him. The more rooted we are in Him the more fruitful we become in the mission.
As with any tree or plant, the fruit is determined by the health and depth of the root. One way we have been going deeper is by reading and journaling through the Word every day. We’ve called it S.O.A.P.
- [S]cripture - Read the Word
- [O]bservation - Write down what God is saying/showing you
- [A]pplication - How do we apply this in our lives?
- [P]rayer - Pray through and over your life
As we do this we will grow in our relationship with God and become self-feeders, people who know His voice, who know what He is saying and know how we are to live it out. If we are to be effective in making disciples then being a self-feeder is essential so that we can show (disciple) those who are being saved to do the same.
Over the Autumn we’ll be continuing our Bible Reading Plan to press deeper into God so that we can go further in His purposes. Get yourself a Bible, a journal and a pen and SOAP your way through the scriptures!
