The R.E.A.P.

I dove into my first attempt at using the R.E.A.P. method for personal spiritual devotions last night.  It was good.  Developed by Austin Stone Community Church, it stands for Read, Examine, Apply, and Pray.  Most simply, it’s a structured and practical approach to spending time with the Word of God.

I test drove it last night as I finished out Philippians 4.  Sue actually did it as well (but she followed the suggested reading… lame.  j/k).  Again, it was good.

I’ll be typing my notes onto this blog, and it’ll sit under the category reap if you’d like to peruse them.
