‘REAP’ is a simple Bible reading technique to encourage daily reading and reflection on scripture.

READ: Read a passage of Scripture. Be on the lookout for the verse, word or sentence that jumps out at you. Write that down in your journal, with the Bible reference next to it.

EXPLORE: Rewrite it in your own words as though you were trying to explain it to someone else.  Note what jumped out at you and why?  What observations would you make  about what you’ve just read in its context?

APPLY: How might you apply what you have just read to your own life?  Don’t rush. Use this time to meditate on what you feel God might be saying to you through this passage.

PRAY: Ask God to help you hear and understand His Word.  Write down what it is you want to say to, or ask of God in light of what you have just read. Don’t be afraid to pause and listen!  Ask Him to give you direction for the day, for the week, and for your life.

This year, we have devised a New Testament reading plan that tracks through key sermon series throughout 2018. This will encourage our Church family to be engaging in many of the Scriptures that will be expounded on Sundays. We pray that as we journey together in God’s Word, we will indeed see more people, more like Jesus.

To encourage our families to engage in these conversations together, we are also following the same REAP methodology with our Kidzlife, Youth and Young Adult communities. This is a great opportunity to walk together with your children through the Scripture and wrestle with and reflect on the Word of God as a family.

Each day one of our Ministry Team will provide their personal reflections here, which you can read and reference as a guide to help you with your own devotions. Feel free to join in the conversation and add your own insights and revelations on the passages we read together here on the blog, or feel free to share these posts on social media.

Any questions or concerns please contact us at hello@church.nu.
