The Best Decision for the New Year


Today is the last day of 2015.

The end of another year of reading through the Bible with the SOAP method. His written Word is our daily food, it’s alive and powerful. It’s not like any other book every written. It’s inspired by the Holy Spirit and every word is true.

Here are my SOAP (Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer) journal notes for this last day of 2015 as we finish the book of Revelation:

Anyone Who Wishes

S – “The Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come!’ And let the one who hears say, ‘Come!’ Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.” Revelation 22:17

O – After reading about those who will be outside of heaven and will not be allowed in, what wonderful words! Anyone who wishes, ANYONE who desires the water of life is welcome! Those who stay outside are those who choose to do so, those who refuse to come, who refuse to believe or repent. Jesus invites all who want His gift, to come in.

A – I am so thankful that I know Jesus. I am so thankful that He loves me and welcomes me into His kingdom. I can do absolutely nothing on my own. I am a helpless, wandering sheep without Him.

P – Jesus, thank you for giving me the water of life. I do wish. I do want that free gift and I have received it! Please take all that I am and use me for your glory.

Please join me as we start a new year reading through the Bible tomorrow! There are various reading plans that fit whatever your needs are.  You can choose from a snack, meal or a feast.   Find a journal, a notebook or use an online journal as I do to record your insights. God’s written Word changes our hearts and our lives when we mediate on it and choose to obey. Please comment below if you have any questions. You can also follow along with others as we read at Discover One Thing.
