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. If you have not joined any small group Bibles study, then you may not be aware of the benefits that you can get from it. 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.
A small group Bible study is composed of a very few believers who all desire to learn the Bible. 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. This fellowship can be very intimate because it is just a small group of believers. Learning more about God and His Word is the goal of every attendee of a small group Bible study. 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. 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. The Lord blesses those who spend time getting to know His Word and obeying everything in it.
There are some things common without relationship with God and our relationship with the people around us. It has to be cultivated. There has to be communication all the time for a better understanding of each other. You can learn to love God more in a small group Bible study as you learn more about His character.
Some believers are able to quote scriptural verses even without opening their Bibles. The knowledge of verses shown by these people are truly admirable. The only way to know the Scriptures by heart is to keep on studying and meditating upon it. 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.
