Encouragements to Join a Small Bible Study Group
Today it is very common in evangelical churches to form small Bible study groups where anyone can join. Many church goers have at one time or another been a part of a small group Bible study. Joining a small group Bible study has its benefits which are only known to its attendees so if you haven’t tried joining one, you will not know what these benefits are. Here are some of the many benefits of joining a small group Bible study.
In a small group Bible study, you meet regularly with a small group of believers and have time and intimate fellowship with them. There are a lot of believers attending church services and although you are commanded in the Bible to have fellowship with them, it is almost impossible to make a significant connection with anyone because of the great number.
In a small group Bible study, you are together with a few other believers studying the Word of God together. Because of your common belief in God and His Word, you are bound to each other you are all strangers at the start. This fellowship can be very intimate because it is just a small group of believers. The goal of the people attending this small group Bible study is to learn more about God and His Word. By the time your Bible study is over, you may make a new friend of two who can be your friends for life.
Another benefit of joining a small Bible study group is that you will be strengthened in your Christian life. The sense of God’s presence in your life will be felt more as you meet regularly for Bible study to learn more about God’s Word. God will bless you if you study His word and keep His commandments.
In some ways, our relationship to God is like the relationship with have with people on earth. It has to be cultivated. If you want to have a better understanding of the other person, there need to be communication at all times. In a small group Bible study, you will be able to fulfill these requirements for a healthy relationship with God and this will also strengthen the relationship you already have with Him.
Some believers are able to quote scriptural verses even without opening their Bibles. The knowledge of verses shown by these people are truly admirable. If you take the Bible to heart, then one of these days, you will be like the person that you admire. Soon, it will always be in your mouth, and as the Scriptures say that from out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.
