Bible Study With Others

In school, my teachers often encourage us to work together to study for tests and assignments. The partnership is great to compare understanding and answer questions among one another. The Bible is no different from that! The Bible is often something very difficult to understand, and studying together with others can make it easier to handle. Having people to study with also promotes accountability to make sure you are spending your quiet time with God every day.

“For where two or three gather in my name, there I am with them.” Matthew 18:20

Personally, since I’ve begun doing devotions with a group and a weekly meet-up I’ve been closer to God than I’ve ever been before, and that is all because I had that ability to have someone to check in on me and vice versa. It kind of feels like that is what I was missing in building my habits to make sure God is not just “budgeted in” to my time, but he has priority. Right now is a challenging time for staying connected as a community, but it isn’t impossible. Zoom is a great way to stay connected with your Bible partners, and so is the Bible app to join devotional plans together. I highly encourage becoming involved in studying the Bible with others because it might be what you are missing in your journey with God!

Lord, thank you for our abilities to stay connected to you in this tough time. Please help us to stay healthy and still find you in our daily lives, even during shelter in place. Amen
