Hebrews 10:25 (Pt. 2) Adults’ Classes. Topics: 2 at end.
“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as you see the day approaching.” (AKJV) (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)
In churches, one of the best values of Sunday-school classes for adults, or adults’ small-group Bible studies, may be plain and simply: personal exhortation. Of course it is of great value to be taught God’s Word from the pulpit. Where would churches be today without that? But in addition, studying God’s Word in small groups has an enriching aspect, one of encouragement.
Through pulpit preaching we can, of course, receive exhortation – especially the type that encourages listeners to listen and then apply what is being preached. But in smaller groups, adults are enriched through a personal aspect that is hard to achieve through group worship and study in a more formal church setting. It is in the small groups that adults may be more relaxed and may feel freer to share from their hearts and ask questions when seeking answers.
So what does this have to do with pro-life work? Maybe nothing directly; however, if group members are built up through exhortation and encouraged to follow where God is leading them, there may be a result with the effect of “equipping” for a wide range of ministries, a few of which would be suitable for some of the group members. In other words, by exhorting one another in small settings, group members are being prepared in one way or another, to actively serve in ministry. And maybe some persons will feel led to enter into the pro-life mission.
Because of personal interaction and exhortation by caring persons in any group, strength may be brought to individual members . . . strength to go out and try some ministry areas, asking God to lead them where He would take them. Being built up personally in faith by like-minded folks may be just the push toward ministry that some persons could well use.
Who knows what may come from such associations? Much good for individuals. And maybe just some good for pro-LIFE.
Lord, we pray for small groups that build up and support – Thank You for the opportunities You create in them for fellowship, good counsel, and great encouragement.
Topics: Pray for churches, that they may provide opportunities for growth through small groups and adult Sunday-school classes.
