Starting A Bible Study


I met a lady the other day who was starting a Bible study. My curiosity got the best of me, and I asked her how she got into this Bible study. She related the following story to me: Basically, she had spoken to an acquaintance about needing to get into church, and the acquaintance mentioned having a Bible study together. She agreed. Praise God! I hope this study will lead to her becoming a New Testament Christian and to God’s glory.


Sometimes I think we make evangelism too complicated, or we use that as an excuse not to be obedient to the example we see in Matthew 28:19-20. Jesus said to his disciples, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I command you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” My job is to simply plant the seed of God’s word into hearts. Be so excited about church that you are inviting others. “Would you like to come to worship with me? Do you want to sit down and study the Bible?” You might be told no, but again, my job is not to make them say yes but to plant the seed. They might just say yes. Pray for opportunities, then look for opportunities and take them.


Where might you look? How about your family? Do you have any friends? Where do you work or go to school? Are there people there? How many neighbors do you have? The list could go on and on. Be excited about Jesus and His church. When I am excited about something, I talk it up. Take advantage of the opportunities God blesses you with. “Hey, we are having this thing (VBS, Gospel Meeting, etc) at church. Why don’t you come with me?” “We are having a class on prayer that is really helping me. You should come.” Whose life will you sow God’s word into?
