Looking On The Bright Side of Scriptures
Reasons to Join an Online Bible Study.
It is important to have our personal relationships with God through prayers and reading the bible but it cannot give us full benefits if we don’t involve others. The Bible also encourages us to have fellowship with others like Hebrews 10:25 says don’t forsake gathering of the assembly of believers. Sharing our gifts with our Christian brothers and sisters as a way of supporting them is an act that the book of Ephesians also encourage. Through fellowship, Christians can help each other in the journey of faith and in avoiding the temptation of sin.
Bible study have not been left behind as everything else changes with technology. Online bible study is very convenient to people who are willing to join bible study but they have availability limitations. Work keeps people busy for the whole day and their kids need them when they go home. When people say” I can’t find time for bible study”, it can be genuine for most of them because the Bible study meeting time is preset. Busy people find online Bible study better for them because it enables them to study the bible at the most convenient time for them.
In Bible studies, people have the homework of personal studies which are discussed together with the group in the next meeting. It is difficult for people who are always working to go at the same pace with other members of the Bible study group. To avoid embarrassment they are more likely to miss the next Bible Study meeting. Members in online Bible study groups can have their own session verse by verse at their own pace or they can closely follow what was learned when there were a lot of people online.
The benefits that one gets by having an online Bible study are the same with the ones that a person in a tradition Bible study group will have even if the sharing process is different. Online Bible study gives the members an opportunity to share with people from different cultures and denominations and grow spiritually. Most bible study groups are made by members of the same church hence denying them the outside thought. You can also leave the online Bible lessons that you feel not beneficial and join others without fear of being judged.
The other benefit of online Bible study is that you can connect with friends wherever they are and continue fellowshipping with them. These friend could be people you shared the same bible study but they relocated to other areas or your family members. It could also be beneficial for members of a study group to discuss matters that arise in between meetings through online channels.
