Learning From Study and Reflection
The Bible was written to help us understand God’s love, learn more about Jesus’s life, and help us to see how much we are loved. It also teaches us that God is powerful; more powerful than death as He raised Jesus up from the grave. In order to be able to acknowledge His great works and learn about His own relationship with those He walked with, we need to devote our time to studying the Bible and all that He did.
Bible Studies or Cell Groups are a great way to learn more about the Bible and discuss key passages. Through coming together as a church family in smaller groups, you can discover key lessons and concepts from the Bible and learn how these lessons can be applied to your life. We all experience difficulties, making it imperative to read the Bible and encourage each other in our walk of faith.
God is always working in our lives, even if we can’t see it at the time. Through Him we are able to pursue a life of love and forgiveness because He sent Jesus to die for our sins. To thank Him for all that He has done and all that He will continue to do, spend some time in worship. This can take the form of singing, making music, writing, painting, dancing or just sitting quietly. Worship can help us connect with God on a greater level and find peace and understanding.
Devotionals and Prayer
Starting your day with the Word of God can help us overcome difficulties and alleviate worries as His promises are fresh and new in our mind, helping us give each and every situation over to Him. There are several instances in the Bible, where Jesus left His disciples and the crowds of people, to go spend some quiet time with God.
“Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.”
It was during this time with God, that Jesus found strength in His father. Just like spending some quality time with a family member or friend, Jesus spent this time with His father to restore His soul and find comfort.
As children of God, we are called to learn more about Him and the promises that He has for our life. He is always walking beside us, no matter what is taking place in our lives, so embrace His presence through devotion and reflection and enter into a greater relationship with Him.
