Gather small, go deeper & grow.
Ps Nathan & Bec have felt strongly that the Lord is calling Nexus Church towards discipleship in 2021. The invitation is for everyone in our community - new Christians, those always in church and everyone journeying with Jesus.
It's a mature ask; a nudge into daily devotion around scripture and deliberate deeper discussions with a small group.
You can begin anytime and don't worry if you miss a fortnight, or if you can only meet with a few people.
The goal is to consistently journey deeper with scripture and each other throughout 2021.
If you're new or would love to be connected with a small group, please let us know.
Our Pastoral Team will prayerfully partner you with friendly and trustworthy church members.
S.O.A.P. is a way of reading the Bible reading and can include journaling (a great use for our 2021 Prayer Journal!). It can be used with any daily Bible reading plan.
Open your Bible to today’s reading (according to whatever plan you are following). Take time reading and allow God to speak to you. When you are done, look for a verse that particularly spoke to you that day, and write it in your journal.
What do you think God is saying to you in this scripture? Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you and reveal Jesus to you. Paraphrase and write this scripture down in your own words.
How does this scripture apply to your life, your situation right now? Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, revelation of a new promise, or corrections for a particular area of your life. Journal how this scripture can apply to you today.
Take a moment to pray and ask God to speak to you, or bring revelation to the scripture you have read. You don't need to use fancy words or be overly formal, but aim to be honest and authentic.
