When we come together to seek God through His word something wonderful happens. We feel cared for, not alone, refreshed and restored. The principles and precepts stored in the Word come alive and the comradery of sharing those "Ah-ha" moments bond people in a supernatural way. Why would any of us chose not to participate in this activity? It does require our most valuable resource which is time and the ability to let down any walls of insecurity, but what a reward! If you are not in a bible study seek one out!
