How to R.E.A.P. the Word of God
Read: Read the passage carefully and prayerfully.
Examine: Read the passage again, noting key words, or phrases. Be careful to note the context surrounding the passage. Ask questions about the passage. Who is the audience? What situation is the speaker or author addressing? What is the main theme of this passage? Note in particular what you learn about the Lord from the passage.
Apply: Consider carefully the impressions on your heart as you read. How does this passage touch on specific areas or situations in your life? What wisdom are you gaining from this passage? What are you learning about your Lord in relation to your current spiritual experience?
Pray: Use what you the Lord has revealed about himself or about you personally in this time as an opportunity to respond directly to him. Pray to him in praise, or repentance, or in petition for others as the Holy Spirit guides you. Treat this time in God’s Word not as a devotional exercise, but as a personal encounter with your holy God and your loving Savior.
