Why Be A Part Of A Life Group

God never intended you to live the Christian life alone. Throughout the Bible we are given various “one another” statements to apply to our lives. These involve loving one another (1 Thess. 3:12), encouraging one another (1 Thess. 5:1), serving one another (1 Peter 4:10), forgiving one another (Eph. 4:31-32), accepting one another (Rom. 15:7), honoring one another (Rom. 12:10), motivating one another (Heb. 10:24), and praying for one another (James 5:16), to name a few. It’s impossible to apply these in isolation. One of the best places to experience Christ at work is in a Life Group (a small group of believers ranging from 4-20 in number, that usually meet in a home for prayer, study of God’s Word, and fellowship). How does being a part of a Life Group help you mature as a follower of Jesus? Continue reading

Let’s stay balanced and away from extremes. Besides, getting the most out of the worship service should result in life transformation at some level and that’s partly what it’s about (Romans 12:1-2). How can you get the most of the worship service? Continue reading
