Why Should I Join a Group?

February 18, 2021

God did not create us to walk through our spiritual journey alone. He intends for the Christian life to be surrounded by fellow believers, all encouraging one another to draw closer to Him. He desires for us a cultivate an atmosphere of love, unity, and mission between us because He knows that we are stronger together. Having powerful relationships with fellow believers is essential to our faith.

Sadly, we often neglect meeting with one another. The busyness of life catches up with us, and we don’t hold being in a small group as a high enough priority. Hebrews 10:24-25 reads, “Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near” (NLT). God’s Word reminds us of the importance of meeting together.

We find unmatched motivation to grow in our faith through the relationships we form in our small groups. The encouragement we receive from one another is irreplaceable. Studying God’s Word together also allows us to hear others’ insights into the Bible, learning things that we would not see on our own. The list of benefits that come from spending time with our brothers and sisters in the faith is endless.

But, most importantly, there is a profound beauty in just spending time with one another. As God’s children, we are connected in a special way. Spending quality time together fills our souls. The godly love that we experience through our bonds comes to define our lives. It is also a testament to others as they see the power that comes from being unified in Christ. Join a small group today, and experience the influence of godly relationships in your life.
