Acts Lesson 4/Day 1
Welcome to Lesson 4! Day One of every lesson is always set aside to read the passage we’ll be studying for the next 10 days. Many clever folks have developed tools to help people study the Bible in a systematic way. There’s the REAP method, the SOAP method, the IDEA, POWER, and even the APPLE methods. Depending on the genre of Scripture you’re studying any one of these methods can be very helpful. Today we’re going to use the method. It’s a simple approach I’ve developed that you can easily recall...
P for Pray – Pray for wisdom and understanding and for God to guard your heart from error and lead you to truth
R for Read – Read the Word, the whole word and nothing but the Word – no commentaries – just read through the entire passage for that day.
O for Observe – note the essential and straightforward details – who, what, when, where, why, how. Include emotional tone, motivation, and overall situation going on
B for Back and Build – think back to what you know to be true about God, the people in this passage, and build on that knowledge to help you understand
E for Expand and Embrace – expand and see the big picture of what God is doing, how it points to Jesus, and then embrace that truth, command, or promise as applicable to your life today.
Using the PROBE method, note your thoughts and responses for each passage in today's lesson.
