SOAP Devotional Plan
The S.O.A.P. Method of Bible Reading

S.O.A.P. stands for Scripture, Observation, Application, and Prayer.

It is a method of Bible journaling developed by Pastor Wayne Cordeiro. It’s a great way to get more out of reading your Bible, and allows you to record your thoughts, emotions and the revelation you receive from God’s Word.

Read meditatively and thoughtfully through a portion of Scripture. Pick a verse or two that stood out to you and write it in your journal.

Now write some observations about the verse(s) or passage. What is this passage or verse saying? About God? About people? How is Christ revealed in this?

Now write a few sentences on how this passage applies to your life. Is there truth about God that you are to believe? A promise to receive? Is the Holy Spirit convicting you of something you need to do or stop doing in light of God’s truth? What specific principle are you challenged to practice based on Scripture, prayer, and reflection? Be doers of the word and not merely hearers. (James 1:22)

Now write out a prayer to God in response to this Scripture. This is a way to turn God’s Word to you back to Him. Be honest and express your heart to Him. God always listens and He delights in your prayers. (Psalm 34:15; Proverbs 15:8) 

October - December Church-Wide Devotional Scriptures:


The phrase “one another” is derived from the Greek word allelon, which means “one another, each other; mutually, reciprocally.” They are specific commands teaching us how (and how not) to relate to one another. Obedience to these commands is imperative. It forms the basis for all true Christian community and has a direct impact on our witness to the world (John 13:35).



  • Do not lie to one another (Col 3:9)
  • Stop passing judgment on one another (Rom 14:13)
  • Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other (
  • Gal 5:26) 
  • Do not slander one another (Ja 4:11)
  • Do not grumble against one another (Ja 5:9)

We do all this because we are in a real sense “members of one another” (Romans 12:5, Ephesians 4:25)
