Daily SOAP: God’s Word Sets Our Hearts On Fire

SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. Today’s journal comes from reading Luke 24.

Scripture

“They said to one another, ” Were not our hearts burning within us while He was speaking to us on the road, while He was explaining the Scriptures to us?” –Luke 24:32

Observation

Their hearts were set on fire by God’s Word.

This was not a formal teaching but simply talking while walking down the road.

Application

Never, ever share God’s Word in a boring manner. This is God’s LIVING Word; it is meant to set us on fire. Aim for the heart.

Fire is caught, not taught. To set others’ hearts on fire, I must first be on fire for God.

Talk of God’s word “on the road” –not only during formal meetings.

Prayer

Father, nothing in this world is more precious than Your Word.  Too often do I allow myself to be set on fire and speak with great enthusiasm about things far less important.

Set me on fire with Your Word, I pray, and anoint me in such a way as to cause men’s hearts to burn within them as they hear me teach it, preach it and speak of it. This I pray–not for my glory– but for Yours.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
