how to shape
Here at Legacy Church we have a bible reading program called SHAPE. SHAPE is a great way to grow deeper in your relationship with Jesus.
S - Scripture: Start by finding the sections of the Bible for the day and read them. (You can find these readings by clicking on the “Readings” tab to the left or visiting the Mountain View Church app) Mark in your Bible, highlight, underline or star the verses (Scripture) that speak to you. Then write one or two of them in your journal.
H - Hear: When we read the Bible, we expect God to speak to us. Take some time to hear from God and what He has to say to you about the verses you wrote down. Write out, in the voice of God, what you believe the Lord is speaking to your heart.
A - Apply: This is where the rubber meets the road. Write down how you can apply what you’ve just read and heard to your life.
P - Pray: Take some time to write out a prayer to God of what is on your heart. Ask God to help you, encourage you, and strengthen you to follow through on your commitments and desires for the day.
E - Exalt: This is a great opportunity to praise God for His blessings. There is so much to be grateful for in our lives!
If you miss a day, don't be discouraged, just pick up the next day and keep going.
