SOAP Sunday

June 06, 2021  

Dear Saints,

I feel like the Lord is challenging me to stay true to the purpose of SOAP Sunday. Down below are the instructions for what a SOAP looks like.

Many pastor friends of mine are shocked that I would allow a time of sharing from the congregation on a monthly basis. But I believe that it has real value if it is done right. SOAP Sunday is not a time to preach at the rest of the congregation. It is not a time to get up and share stuff that you want to say. THAT’S NOT IT! It is not a time to bring everybody up to date on what’s going on in your life.

A SOAP is something you share that comes out of your own personal devotional life. As you are spending time in the WORD everyday, God will quicken a verse or passage of Scripture to you. When He does that, take some time with it using the SOAP acronym (Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer). Take the time to write down where it leads you (to journal it). SOAPing is a way to journal that is very effective.

When you share it you are opening up your personal devotional life to the congregation. It’s about what God is saying to you, not what you want to say to the congregation. It’s about your observation and your application that culminates in a prayer. It is personal! It’s what God is saying to you! It’s what God is asking you to do!

I love SOAP Sunday. I love hearing about what God is doing in YOUR LIFE.

Dave
