S.P.E.C.K.A. Bible Devotional Approach

Sin to confess: Is there a sin I need to confess or avoid?

Promise to claim: Is there a promise I need to believe and claim for my life?

Example to follow: Is there an example I can follow or avoid?

Command to obey: Is there a command in this text to obey?

Knowledge to understand: Is there knowledge about God or how he works?

Application to make: What will I do in response to what I have learned?

How to use S.P.E.C.K.A.

Personally: Read the whole text, then ask each SPECKA question, re-read the text and answer each question.

Growth Groups: In Bible time, share what you’ve learned. Hold each other accountable to the Application. Weekly, share the text with an outsider and share their response with your Growth Group.
