5 Powerful Benefits of Bible Study

The United States has the largest population of Christians in the world, nearly 205 million as of 2019. A study conducted by the Barna Group also found that 69% of Christians had prayed within the last week. While prayer is one way to connect with God, Bible study can be just as important, and it isn't something that any Christian should neglect. If you are curious about how Bible study can benefit you, here is what you need to know.

1. Accountability

Joining a Bible study group at your local church is a great way to provide a sense of accountability for your actions. While it's easy to make excuses not to study and learn God's word on your own, when you have a group you gain a measure of accountability that you don't have on your own. Continuous attendance is key, as you build relationships with others in your group and work together to ensure that everyone remains committed and attentive.

2. Community

Another benefit of Bible study at your local church is the ability to find a community that you can thrive in. As you attend Bible study lessons, you will meet other Christians and create lasting friendships with your brothers and sisters in Christ. This community is something that many people who don't participate in church groups miss out on, and it can help solidify their relationship with God, as well as all of those who join them weekly at their church.

3. Support

When you're going through a hard time, it's easy to begin questioning your faith or giving in to temptations. However, by building relationships among those in your bible study group, you can create a solid support network that can be there for you when you need them most. Even if it's something as simple as meeting to pray together, this support system can be crucial for anyone facing turbulent times.

4. Understanding

Another benefit that local church Bible study groups can provide you is a better understanding of God's word. When reading the Bible you may come across passages that you don't quite understand or have questions about. In Bible study, you can ask any questions that you have and gain a better understanding of the Bible and how it is meant to be read.

5. Wisdom

With a better understanding of the scriptures also comes wisdom. By participating in Bible study and learning the truth of the gospel, you can acquire more wisdom about how to conduct your life and live as a child of Christ by giving you the tools needed to better mirror the example that Jesus provides. As 2 Peter 1:3 states, the Bible contains, "everything we need for life and godliness".

If you haven't been to your local church in a while or you are looking to strengthen your faith and understanding, consider sitting in on one of your local Bible study lessons. When it comes to gaining a better understanding of the word of God, you have a lot to lose but everything to gain.
