Take a portion of your day to read the Bible, we will provide you with a reading plan and how to download the Bible App to make it as accessible as possible. We recommend doing so, first thing in the morning, it just helps start the day off right. Regardless of when, just make sure you do. The bible says that our faith is built when we read God’s word, and it the one place where we’re reminded of His promises for us. We’ll also provide a simple process call S.T.E.P. to help christians in every season explore new depths in their faith.
At The Movement Church, we are not perfect but we will grow; cultivating transformation through devouring God’s word. It is our prayer that you not only attend, but also hear from God daily through His Word! Doing daily devotions re-patterns the way we think, transforms the spirit of our mind, and helps us become more Christ centered!
S.T.E.P. Journaling is a simple and excellent way to both record and process what God has spoken to you. It’s also a useful tool for a later time when you want to reflect on some of the great things God has spoken to you. Without writing them down, you may forget his promises and important lessons! Furthermore, while journaling is a very personal time with the Lord, you may want to share some of your daily journaling with your spouse, close friend, or connection group, so having a written record becomes very important! Through discussion, you may be able to look deeper into what God is speaking to you, gain new insight, and even encourage others!
You will need:
Bible or download The Bible app here.
Paper and pen, or some type of digital journal.
S - Scripture: Open your Bible to your reading for the day. Take time reading and allow God to speak to you. When you are done, look for a verse that particularly spoke to you that day, and write the verse in your journal.
T - Think: Think about what God is saying to you in this scripture? Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you, reveal Jesus to you, and show you something new.
E - Execute: Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, a new promise, or corrections for a particular area of your life. Execute means: to carry out, accomplish, to perform or do! Right now, write how this scripture can apply to you today, and go for it!
P - Pray: This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this scripture, or even a prayer for a greater insight on what He may be revealing to you. Remember, prayer is a two-way conversation, so be sure to listen to what God has to say! Now, write it out.
