Everybody loves to eat! Not only do we like to eat but we like to eat regularly. Just like we enjoy physical food and need it to live, so does our spirit hunger for spiritual food. We need spiritual nourishment regularly in order to maintain spiritual strength.
Although we receive a nice "meal" on Sunday from studying God's Word together, it's not enough to just "eat" one meal a week. In other words, we must be feeding on God's Word daily in order to maintain spiritual health. To help us get the most out of our "meal-times" with God, we use the Life Journal.
The Life Journal is a simple method of journaling about what you've read in the scriptures. The method is based on the acronym S.O.A.P. which stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. These four simple steps will not only help you to better understand the Bible but also apply it to your life. This is a very important step in your spiritual growth as many people know the Bible but haven't learned how to be self-feeding Christians.
The Life Journal is laid out completely for you so all you have to do is follow the guidelines. You will be amazed at how something so simple can make such a deep impact on your spiritual growth. Life Journals can be purchased at the Info Center in the lobby for $5.00.
