Bible study group contains different people with the same objective of studying the Bible and knowing more about God. One thing that you should do is to join a Bible study group where you feel comfortable and free to learn about the Bible. Discussed in the text below are some of the reasons why Bible study group is considered an effective way of exploring the Bible.
Accountability is one of the reasons why most people prefer Bible study groups. I understand that you might have good intentions of studying the Bible at home but one interaction after the other will prevent you from achieving your objectives and you will always be postponing it. But with group Bible studies other members of will double as accountability partners and when everything try to get in your way they will always be calling you and texting you to know where you are and this will always motivate you to stay on the track. With consistent attendance you will still have time for sharing, praying and how to apply concepts learnt from God’s Word.
Apart from that, it helps in creating the connection. It is normal that when you are being faced with hard situations or temptations, you feel as if you are alone in this world and nobody is there to understand and share that feeling with you. You find that these are works of the devil who works very hard to separate us from other believers. But when we come together as a group on God’s word He will always manifest and friendship will form. In this places you will be in a position to meet other people who have been there and they will still give you another reason to move on.
Most of the people also prefer Bible study groups since it encourages community. One thing that you should know with God is that the way is supporting us by giving us friends and thus how He will give us the opportunity to serve others too. Not only that but with group Bible studies we will also be prepared to be ready to mentor others who are still fresh in principle so that they can also be strong. You find that most of the Bible study group always reflect the diversity of the world and we develop a unique perspective in which we can bring people together.
Another benefit of group Bible study is that it inspires others. For instance, you can be prompted when a woman of God living out abundant faith. Or someone who has lost a family member but still believes that God is the solution and this will make you healthy.
