This is a specially-designed devotional journal utilising the S.O.A.P. method to help you meaningfully engage with and profitably benefit from God’s Word.

[*Note: Please feel free to utilise this devotional according to your own time and at your own pace. This is simply a tool to help you with your daily Bible intake. The key is to get ourselves into the Word – and the Word into us!]
The book of Genesis, which spans from the creation of the world (i.e., “in the beginning”) to the death of Joseph (ca. 1800 BC), is foundational in that it provides us with the necessary background for all that follows in the biblical storyline. It records for us the beginning of the world, humanity, and sin – as well as the initiation of God’s grand plan of redemption through Abraham and his offspring. This grand redemptive plan is something that is gradually unfolded throughout the pages of Scripture and finds its fulfilment and culmination in the person and work of Christ.
Reading the book of Genesis helps us gain a better understanding and deeper appreciation of who God is, who we are, the problem with the world, and what God is doing to redeem the world. And this, in turn, should lead us to worship and adore the one true and living God from whom, through whom, and to whom are all things!
