I’ve heard it said before that real life only happens in small groups! That’s why at many churches they are called Life Groups. What is a small group? Jesus tells us in Matthew 18:20, For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” That’s the nucleus for a small group! Many people think that small groups have to some elaborate time consuming commitment. It shouldn’t be. In fact the simpler you keep them the better!
Our memory verse this week in 40 Days in the word is Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly from Colossians 3:16. To truly allow God’s Word to dwell in us we must apply to every part of our lives. We were not created to live in a vacuum. We were created to have fellowship with God and other believers. We have no problem going to work, school, shopping, concerts, and ball games with total strangers. Why do we have such an aversion to spending time with other Christians? We’re going to spend eternity with each other, so why not get to know each other now?
I encourage you join or create a small group to have the fellowship, guidance, and learning experience that can change you forever. Jesus promises us He’ll be there.
Be wise today and always – be part of a Life group.
