Something I gained in Lifegroup

When I first went to Lifegroup, I had no idea what it was about, only that some people got together to study the Bible,

and I couldn’t think of anything more boring than that other than watching paint dry.

 

Since that was my only other choice most Sundays, I decided to give it a try. I’d already decided to be a Christian, so why not learn more about it.

When I got there, I didn’t know what to think. There was a group of people, sitting and having coffee together (or in my case, hot chocolate) and chatting and laughing.

They looked like normal people! Well, here is the breaking news…
They Are!
I was confused, weren’t we supposed to be sitting down and seriously diving “deep” into the Bible and talking about weird stuff?

What I really found was a group of friends. Not just people passing through my life, and not people who were there the one week, and gone the next. These people were there for me every week.

More than that, They were there for me during the week too; having breakfast together, and celebrating my birthday.
Every low point in my life those friends are still there for me, and every high point, those same friends are right there to be happy with me.

Something I learned in Lifegroup.

One of the best things that ever happened to me is joining Lifegroup.
A small group of people meet and share about the amazing things happening in our lives, and the victories over the trials in them.
We give each other good advice, share about what we believe, Read the bible together and have a lot of fun.
Wait a minute… Read the bible AND have fun? Contrary to popular belief, it IS possible.
I used to think that reading the bible was a recipe for boredom:

Take one story about a man who did a bunch of stuff years ago
Add in a lots of names and numbers
Stir it in with a bunch of rules
And let it cook for 2000 years…

NOT!

It’s more like this:

Take stories of people doing action movie-like feats of heroism
Add in lots of stories of romance, treachery and ridiculous bad-guys
Stir it in with the ultimate heroic ending
And see how it keeps on nourishing people for 2000 years

In Lifegroup I learned not to be so prejudiced about things I don’t know about.

Where do you go to grow and learn?
