Morning Coffee 11/23/14 A Thanksgiving Feast For Our Soul
“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.”( Hebrews 10:23-25 NLT)
Hello family. For us in the United States, thanksgiving is a day when we gather together with family to feast and fellowship and give thanks. For most it is the largest meal of the year, a feast that leaves most of us immobilized by a full belly. But did you know that there is a feast of greater fulfillment that is available to us at least once a week at our local church or in a small cell group? It’s called bible study.
It is good we attend Sunday service where we are feed the word. But when we gather together with other believers and sit and study and discus Gods word, there is a rich spiritual buffet that is laid out for our spirit to feast on. When we gather together to dig deeper into God we will grow more. Because when we study Gods word together we can uplift each other. Through the Holy Spirit we will get deeper understanding of God’s word that we wouldn’t normally get from a Sunday sermon.
Nobody can grow in isolation, if we isolate our self, when tough times hit we won’t have the spiritual encouragement we get from other believers who more than likely have gone through or are going through the same thing we are going through. So I want to encourage you got to your churches bible study. If there is not one, talk to your pastor about starting one. If your church has small group bible studies in the homes of other fellow church members find one and go to it. And if God leads you, gather together a few other strong believers and start a weekly bible study. The point is to gather together with other believers, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit build each other up spiritually, because a time is coming when we will need to draw on the spiritual knowledge we gain when we study together with other believers in Christ. We make time for everything else, make time to get together and study and learn the word of God.
Much Love & God Bless
