Introduction: Ephesians Study

Happy February, friends! I hope you’re ready for a new month…and a new SOAP study!

Over the past month, I took a little bit of a break from writing here, contributed to our Acts devotional at The Journey, and enjoyed an incredibly refreshing time of 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting. As part of that time, I worked on a content map for the next few months, and I’m ready to reveal our next two studies today!

First up, we’ll be reading through Ephesians together beginning Monday, February 8th through Friday, February 19th. Like our Romans study, here’s how it’s structured:

  • We’ll be using the “SOAP” method for our devotional -- SOAP is a way of reading the Bible where you choose a Scripture, Observe what’s going on in that passage, figure out the Application for your life, and then end in Prayer.
  • We’ll read a few verses together everyday – Ephesians is only six chapters, so we’ll be able to thoroughly dive into it over the next ten days.
  • I’ll post a new devotional Monday through Friday at 5:00 a.m.

I love Ephesians. It’s a letter written to the people in Ephesus, authored by my main man Paul. For a short book, it holds so much wisdom and encouragement. Over the next two weeks, we’re going to explore the depths of God’s grace and love, what it means to be part of God’s family and the church, and how to live life full of confident hope. We’re going to take a look at how our relationships with spouses, parents, siblings, and friends can honor God. We’re going to dig into honesty and how to speak the truth and love. And yes, we’re probably going to talk at length about the 90s (you know you missed my Britney Spears references), my ridiculous antics, my obsession with making lists, and other random thoughts that I somehow tie into God’s Word. Who let me write these things again?! The internet is a beautiful thing, my friends.

After we finish Ephesians, we'll be taking a short break and then returning on Monday, February 29th, for a study through the Book of Mark, which will conclude right before Easter on Friday, March 25th. I'm looking forward to diving into this Gospel together as we prepare our hearts to celebrate Easter, taking an in-depth look at the life, death, and resurrection of our King, Jesus.

Last but not least, I set up a way for you to receive our daily devotionals delivered straight to your inbox. You'll receive an email each day with the content of that day's devotional. (You can unsubscribe at anytime.) Just enter your email address below!

I can’t wait! See you back here on Monday, February 8th.
