40 Days in the Word

40 Days in the Word

At True North Church we believe in the power of the Bible. 40 Days in the Word is designed to equip us to hear the Voice of God through Scripture. Over these 40 days, our Sunday services and Connect Groups will all be focused on digging deeper into the truth of Scripture. Together we will commit to spending 40 days in God’s Word!

40 Days Reading Plan (PDF)

  In conjunction with your 40 day reading plan we suggest you use the ‘SOAP” method as a simple way to get more out of God’s Word. What is S.O.A.P.? S.O.A.P. stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. It is a way of getting more out of your time in God’s word. We did not invent it, we just decided to use this tool in conjunction with ’40 days in the Word’ to help you dive deeper into scripture. How does it work? It’s quite simple. When you do you daily scripture underline or make note of any verses that jump out at you with special significance. This is the basis for diving deeper and using S.O.A.P.

  •  Scripture – Write down in a journal the verse or verses that stuck out to you in your reading, making reference to where you found them in scripture for the future when you may want to find it again!
  •  Observation – What did you observe about the scripture that struck you. This can be one sentence or a whole page.
  •  Application – How can you apply the observation you made of this scripture to your own life so that you can allow the scriptures to keep working in you.
  •  Prayer – Write out a prayer to God based on what you just learned and ask him to help you apply this truth in your life.

Thats all there is to it! Are you ready to get started? We hope this 40 day reading plan can birth a passion and love for the Word of God that will last your lifetime. https://vimeo.com/133873332

Frequently Asked Questions

  As we focus on God’s Word during the 40 Days series, we will spend 4 weeks in our evening service addressing some of the Frequently Asked Questions of Scripture that at times keep people from fully engaging or trusting the Bible. If you or someone you know has ever wondered about these questions, come along as we wrestle with what the Bible says to questions like these:

  • July 26 – What does the Bible say about same-sex marriage?
  • August 2 – How can you know if the Bible we have is even trustworthy?
  • August 9 – Don’t the Bible and science only contradict each other, especially when it comes to creation?
  • August 16 – What do you do with all of the violence in the Old Testament?
