Encouragements to Join a Small Bible Study Group
In many churches today, forming small Bible study groups are encouraged for more intimate fellowship with believers. Many church goers have at one time or another been a part of a small group Bible study. But if you have not tried joining one, there are benefits you can get from it that you may not be aware of until you join one yourself. If you join a small group Bible study, you will be enjoy the benefits given below.
Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of joining a small Bible study group is that you get to meet other believers on a regular basis and have an intimate fellowship with them. We always hear the importance of having fellowship with fellow believers in church sermons, but since there are so many people attending church, having fellowship with these believers will not help you to make a significant connection with anyone.
In a small Bible study group, you get to study the Bible together. You have something in common with everyone in the group even if you have not had the chance to talk to them before or even if you don’t have much in common with them. It is possible to have a more deep and intimate fellowship because you are only few in number. All the people in the group are there with one goal and that is to learn more about God and learn what His Word says about how you should live. This small group Bible study can be a venue for meeting new friends who can be your friends for life.
Being strengthened in your Christian faith is another benefit of joining a small group Bible study. When you meet regularly for Bible study and learn more about what the Word of God says, you will begin to sense the presence of God in your life more and more. God will bless you if you study His word and keep His commandments.
There are some things common without relationship with God and our relationship with the people around us. You have to do something to make it grow. If you want to have a better understanding of the other person, there need to be communication at all times. If you want to strengthen your healthy relationship with God, joining a small group Bible study can cal you fulfill this.
There are people who can quote Bible verses from off the top of their heads. These people are admirable since they can quote verses without even opening their Bibles. The only way to know the Scriptures by heart is to keep on studying and meditating upon it. The Bibles says that from out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks, so if you heart is full of the Word of God, then you will be able to speak about it in any occasion.
