Why Join a Small Group Bible Study
People who go to church have somehow had the experience of joining a small Bible study group. 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. Here are some of the many benefits of joining a small group Bible study.
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. 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.
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. And since this is just a small group, the meeting is very intimate. The goal of the people attending this small group Bible study is to learn more about God and His Word. 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. If you study God’s Word and seek to obey His commands, then you will have blessings from God Himself.
In some ways, our relationship to God is like the relationship with have with people on earth. 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. 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.
