Strength in Numbers

Each week I am involved in 4 Bible studies in three different books, Mark, Jeremiah, and Daniel.  The studies have a total of 20 men in them.  Each one of those men has been gifted by the Holy Spirit.  Each of their gifts differ.  Each of those men have had different experiences in their walk with God.  Each of those men bring that gifting and experience to the study.

So when we come to a passage together, each of us benefits from the other’s gifts and experience.

That happened again this morning.  In Daniel 2 one of the men noted that there was similarity between Denial's prayer in 20 -23 and “the Lord’s prayer” (Matthew 6:9 – 13; Luke 11:2 – 4).

I did not catch that.

That is why we need each other.  We need each other’s gifts and experiences as we dig into God’s Word together.

  1. Your example, Mike, inspires me to consider starting a Bible study group for men.

  2. If you could share how to get started, what goals to set, how to eliminate pitfalls, etc., that would be grand. Thank you, Mike.
