These a group of people who believe in God and they has gathered with a common objective of studying the Bible and knowing more how God operates. One thing that you should do is to join a Bible study group where you feel comfortable and free to learn about the Bible. Let us look at some of the reasons why most of the people prefer joining Bible study groups.
Accountability is one of the reasons why most people prefer Bible study groups. You find that you might wish to study the Bible at home, but the problem is that you will continuously face interruptions which will make you postpone your studies. One good thing with Bible studies groups is that when you are going to be late from the studies you will always be receiving texts and calls from other group members to inquire why you are late telling that they miss you and this is one thing that will always keep you moving since every member accounts for the other. With consistent attendance you will still have time for sharing, praying and how to apply concepts learnt from God’s Word.
Besides, group Bible study is essential since it helps in establishing 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. One thing that you should know is that devil is always around trying 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. When we gather in God’s name, we will be able to meet other people who have been fighting this war for long, and they will give you some encourage you to have faith.
Most of the people also prefer Bible study groups since it encourages community. You find that just as God brings friends to support us, He will also provide us with the opportunity to help others. 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.
